What rod and reel did you catch your PB with?

Recommended Posts

I just thought this might be interesting and fun. We always debate our favorites but this may open some eyes.

I am blessed to have mostly nice high end gear....HOWEVER.... :)

My PB in my avatar was caught with a BPS Crankin Stick and a BPS David Friitts Cranking Reel (bait = Strike King series 5 in sexy shad)

St Croix Legend Tournament Series sweeper spinnerbait with a Shimano Cruxis.

Interestingly, that is my least favorite cheapest reel and least favorite, by a mile, rod I own.

It was a while back...I think I was like 13 fishin a strip pit in Sanderson FL.  Anyhow, I was using a Quantum Energy reel...I don't remember the model # but it was a kinda sparkly brownish/burnt orange color baitcaster and a berkley hunter graphite rod, throwin a red shad culprit jerk worm.  11.5 lbs!  Sadly I was a youngster who was too young to be conservation minded and had a skin mount made of that fish and another 10+ I got outta there about a year later.  In the long run it wouldn't have mattered though because the pit dried up totally.

Sept 17th 1994.  Shimano Castaic spooled with Berkley 17lb XT mounted on 6'6" Berkley Lightning Rod B-50.  I still have both and still use the reel, which Reel Mech serviced over the winter and works like new.  The rod, which I loved back then, is retired.

An older model BPS reel and tournament series rod that my uncle gave me to keep as a spare. This thing is not in the best shape and I was surprised that I was able to land the fish.

My inshore saltwater gear! It was an 8' Hurricane RedBone rod with a Quantum Cabo spinning reel loaded with 20lb power pro. Here in South Florida you never know what the next cast will bring! I love it
