The rod for "Roach Riggin" or a good choice for bass fishing. Great for live bait rigs for walleye, bass, and northern when using larger minnows, and Red Tails or creek chubs for the fall season bite. It can also be used for slip bobber fishing, jigging and using lighter bottom bouncers. Ideal for fishing deeper water. Use a small spinner harness with two small leeches hooked through the nose-this is a deadly combo. Fish both crawlers and leeches when the water temp is in the 50's. Sometimes crawlers work better in water warmer. Lure weight is 1/8-3/4 oz and line weight is 4-12 LBS.
