rod for worms?

Recommended Posts

All unweighted, smaller jig, and light bullet weighted Senko's, tubes, Power worms, etc... I use my BSR803 spinning rod. Heavier stuff, like SwimSenko's, I have to move up to my SJR783. This year, my MBR rod might get called apon to do that duty though. I don't have a technique specific rod for the heavy plastics.

Loomis CR724C 6' heavy for accuracy casting.

Loomis MB844C 7' heavy for open water and pitching in heavy cover.

My BCR803 has taken over almost all of my plastics work except light plastics (less than 3/16) which my BCR852 handles. I rarely throw anything greater than 3/4.

For Senkos and Ikas I use an Avid 6'8" MXF.

For larger T-tigged plastics I use a JM Sig Series 7' MH, or for short casting situations, a team Daiwa Light & Tough 6'3" MH.

All baitcasters with PT reels.

Cheers,

GK

For a mostly bank fisherman this is a great setup.

Awesome!  I also have the same rod and I scored it for $59 to boot. I bought it to be my jig rod but I am glad to hear this is great for worming.

It has not seen much use until last week when I first tried it for jig fishing. I was dragging a 1/2 oz football jig at 50' down and even being a jig newbie, with this rod I felt the take and set the hook.  My beyond frozen hands couldn't seal the deal and the fish got off but this is a little testament about what I have discovered about my crucial to date.

So I guess I'll x3 it for worms.  :o

For texas rigged lizards with a 3/16oz weight and Senkos, I like using a Loomis MBR803.  I also use a St. Croix Avid AS68MXF.  This rod is great for weightless Senkos and Ikas.

I paid under $100 for mine but then I get 25% off; I throw every thing from Wacky Worms to 5/16 oz Texas Rigs.

The 6' 10 length fits me perfectly  :o

A St. Croix EC68MXF, and a Loomis BCR852.

This season I need to pick up a few rods for heavier presentations.  I'm probably going to go with a BCR853, a Shimano Cumara 68MHXF, and a Kistler HE76HC.

If I can find a good enough deal, I'd friggin' love to pick up  a Steez STZ 711HFBA.  

God, I'm going to break the bank here and these are just plastics rods.  This doesn't include the respective reels, a crankin stick, a few walleye rods....... This never ends does it?

Well, I have 3 worm rods, but for larger rigs I use a 6'6" HF (Heavy / Fast) Rainshadow RX7 blank that I built on and a Calcutta 100 with Yo Zuri Hybrid 12# test.  Works like a charm! 8-)

Well, I stopped by a local shop with the intent of buying nothing and I walked over to the Shimano rods. The Crucial's price tag was $59. Confused, I asked the guy and he confirmed the price.

I couldn't believe it so I snatched it up. I screwed up at the same time. There were 2 other 6'10 MHs same model. I could have bought them and even if I sold them for $100.00, I would still have made a good profit and gave the person a saving. Stupid me! >:o
