Crankbait Rod For Drop Shot?

Recommended Posts

I have the Rick Clunn 7' MHCrankbait rod. Just thinking haven't tried if I could use it for drop shotting. It's a fiberglass rod and if cranks aren't working if I could switch out the rig to what I mentioned.

I use bait casting  rods to drop shot quite a bit.  That particular rod weighs quite a bit and isn't the most sensitive rod around.  It works ok for cranks, I guess.

 

For bubba style drop shot fishing, any flipping stick will be the same weight or lighter and be much more sensitive.  Any 6'6" to 7'6" jig or worm rod will be lighter and alot more sensitive.  You could use that Clunn rod for drop shot fishing, I'm just saying that there are many rods out there that would be better tools for the job.

 

If you want to go bait caster finesse drop shot fishing,  Loomis makes a 6'10" drop shot casting rod that matches up perfectly with a Calcutta 50 or similar sized reel.  JMO
