Yes, just went with my 80 year old dad two weeks ago. Hit a few farm ponds in southern Iowa. A friend had it set up to where we could use his utv to get close to the ponds without walking much. Turned out to be a great day had by all. Caught a pile of crappie and blue gills. I caught a 14 inch crappie. Largest one I've ever caught in my life.
If you ever struggle holding onto the rod or just want a better grip for bigger catches then maybe try using an Active Hands general purpose gripping aid in conjunction with the rod. Not sure if you've seen them before but here's the link: www.activehands.com/product/general-purpose-gripping-aid/
