Am I missing anything

Recommended Posts

Just wanted to see if I'm missing anything. As of right now, i have 4 setups. I have my Steez mounted on a BPS Titanium 6'8" medium, fast action rod for lite setups. I have my "forbidden to talk about reel" mounted on a 7' MH Okuma EVX rod for medium setups. My Lew's SD WS mounted on a Powell 7'10" H for swimbaits and such. And my Lew's Spinning on a Powell 7' M for finesse. I don't want too many rods/reels as i don't own a boat "yet". 

Any other suggestions?

i'd say you've got the bases covered really.  only thing i might consider is a rod with a more moderate action for crankbaits, unless one of those rods already listed is more of a moderate action rather than fast or xtra fast....  but those should cover everything you need to catch some fish!

I was thinking the same about a crankbait rod. The only other thing is maybe a drop shot rod.

The rod is a MH 7'. It doesn't say, Moderate action or fast, but in the Okuma catalog, it's listed as a crankbait rod. So I'll give that a shot. Thanks for the feedback.

I guess it depends on whether or not you want more.  A M-Mod or M-MF for lighter crankbaits...or even a ML...depending on where you fish and how light the lure...will complement the MH crankbait rod.  Since the 7' MH is described as a crankbait rod, then I think you need another 7'-7'4" MH rod, but with a Fast or ExtraFast tip for bottom contact lures.

What it boils down to after that is how many rods of each power and action do you want.  Personally I don't like retying too often so I like a couple...or so :lol: ....rods of the same power/action already set up with different lures.  Which rod do you use for jerkbaits?  Squarebills?  Spinnerbaits?  Frogs?  Etc., etc.

A 7'MHF rod is quite versatile and is usually thought of as a good all-around rod.

If the okuma is a crankbait rod, You could look into getting a medium heavy fast action rod to fish your jigs and worms etc. A 7 to 7 1/2 ft mhf is my bread and butter rod. Aside from that, you have everything you need and more.

Glass or composite crankbait rod next!  Dropshot rod you may not need but if you dropshot a lot a dedicated one already tied up and ready to go is nice to have.

Put your money towards the purchase of a used canoe or kayak. Get out on the water with what you have.

Agreed. You're already outfitted better than I am, but the $400 kayak I bought in February made 2016 the best bass fishing year I've had in nearly ten years.
