I have not, but I'd like to.  I haven't been happy with the production trolling rods I've found in retail.  I'd love to have a pair of custom setups built to my specs.  Closest I've found are some kokanee salmon trolling rods but those seem a bit too light.  Everything else seems heavier than I'd want for brookies, rainbows and landlocks to 21" or so.
It is understood that fishing licenses, gas, bait, etc., all cost money, but try not to let a limit of trout be your only gauge for success. Ben Nugent, (NH F&G) Regional Fisheries Biologist
