Welp, My Rod Took A Crap On Me Today...

Recommended Posts

Went out with my ultralight 7' spinning rod for some crappie fishing today.  1/8 oz jig head and blue white tube grub.  Caught a few nice slabs back to back and everything died for about five minutes when mama bass almost jerked the rod from my hands.  I've caught very large bass on this rig before, so I was used to the extreme flexing, but when I got her close to the bank she gave a hard last pull and broke the rod right below the 3rd eye from the top. I reckon she got the hook out when the line slacked.  Was kinda sad and high from the rush, but that rod had paid for itself bout 5 times over in fun with the other big bass I caught on it so I let it go.  Woulda loved to have got my hands on that bass though...

Bummer, man! Sadly, these things happen from time to time. Was your drag set too tight, by chance?
