What Moving Baits Can I Combine?

Recommended Posts

My next venture is to get a rod for spinnerbaits/chatterbaits.. I am looking at a dobyns savvy 734.... but I am wondering if there is any other presentation I can cover with that rod in a moving bait presentation... 

 

I have a rod for 5-6xd sized cranks with a 5.4:1 reel on there.

 

I am thinking I could use the 734 for spinnerbaits/chatterbaits and maaaaybe squarebills..

 

then I need a rod for lipless cranks and a rod for swim jigs.... 

 

so if you could try to fit all of those applications into two rods (DOBYNS ONLY).. and your choice of gear ratio reels (Lew's) what would you do?

 

remember I already have a 6xd rod..

I would probably throw spinnerbaits, chatterbaits, swim jigs, squarebills, and lipless on that 734 Savvy. They're not terribly fast if my 703 is any indication.

 

However it is likely that both the bass and cover are nastier in AL than MI.

my only issue is that I want to throw the swim jigs on braid.. so I need atleast one more combo.. I guess I could do two 734s I just dont know if they have enough bend for a spinnerbait/chatterbait

I throw all of those things on braid.  :eyebrows:

 

If you're going for swim jigs and traps in grass or heavy cover, maybe a 735 for variety?

I use the champ 734 for single hook moving baits like buzzbaits, chatterbaits, swim jigs, spinnerbaits and small swimbaits. The lone exception is big spooks which I also threw on it and it worked great.

But I am assuming you use different lines for each of these applications.. due to that fact. .I am trying to see how many 734's or 705's I will need to cover these applications: spinnerbaits/chatterbaits, lipless cranks, swimjigs, and maaaybe squarebills

Well I use a 705 for squarebills, rattletrap, medium diving cranks, poppers and jr. Spooks with 12lb mono.

The 734 gets 17lb fluoro
