What techniques do yall think deserve dedicated rods that you leave a specific bait on all year?  Thanks.

My 7’ MH pretty much has a jig on it all year round. My 6’8” med x-fast has either a shallow crank of some sort or a fluke tied on year round.

Dropshot, senko (tx and wacky) crank, and jig.

Crankbait rod.

Senko rod.

Ned Rig rod.

Alabama Rig rod.

Drop Shot rod.

Finesse rod.

Flipping and Pitching rods.

Frog rod.

 

Probably some others I can't remember as I sit here waiting for the LSU baseball game to come out of its weather delay. If I was not so lazy tonight I would walk over to where the rods are stored and look at them.

None of my rods are dedicated to any one bait or technique. I prefer my rods to multi-task. My boats aren't big enough to have the decks covered with rods that only serve one purpose.

I used to think that there were many technique specific rods and I even thought a jig rod needed an Xf tip.  I now believe the MBR flex in Loomis line is the solution to that.  I now put more fish in the boat, even with jigs with GLX MBR'S.

 

Flip and pitch and spinning rod covers most everything else

The only rods I have that are dedicated for one thing are my crankbait rod and my weightless plastics.

In my opinion, and for me, it isn't so much about a rod having one specific task as it is about certain techniques needing certain requirements out of a rod. And that's the way I roll. All of my rods do more than one thing.

I agree but I still keep buying more rods.  If I had cut down to a few they would all be MBR taper rods.  I think a 783c and a 844c would cover maybe 75% of common bass presentations.

I'm with Scott - being in a canoe means I don't have much rod-room. So my five rods all multi-task.

Punching grass

Frogging

cranking

swimbaits

 

The rest can be used for at least a couple different things.

I keep a frog tied on most of the year. When it's too cold for frogs the A-rig gets put on that rod. As soon as I decide its warm enough for frogs the A-rig gets put away until next year. My jig rod is the only one that has the same job/bait ALL YEAR.

I have a drop shot specific rod that has literally never had anything else tied onto it.

Topwater and Frogging are my two technique dedicated rod and reel set-ups. Everything else pulls double, sometimes triple, duty.

Originally I looked for versatility.  I'm sure these rods can do more, but I bought them for one purpose.

 

Frog rod

Ned rod

Crankbait rod

 

I bought a 6' MH Lightning and 100HN Procaster a few years ago for my grandson to use.  He had no desire to learn baitcasting.  It is now a dedicated spinnerbait rod for me.

Thanks guys.  I dont feel quite so bad for continuing to pile sticks into the collection with only single purpose in mind.
