The Pulling Rod
The Pulling Rod is an 11′ medium action rod made for slow trolling, dipping trees, trolling crankbaits, and spider rigging. An awesome jigging rod. For use with baitcasting or spinning reel.
With it’s strong backbone, yanking fish out of the water weighing two or more pounds will not be a problem for this rod.
The Dipping Stick
The Dipping Stick is a 10′ medium action rod with a Tennessee-style handle. With an adjustable handle, fishermen who want a lesser or further reach can easily adjust the handle to their standards It’s designed to use with a spinning reel and lighter crappie jigs and minnows.
It also has a lighter backbone and softer tip for catching lighter fish.
The Meat Dragger
The Meat Dragger is a medium/heavy 10′ rod that’s best for big fish and heavy tackle with enough backbone to pull the biggest crappie out of cover or dipping trees. For use with baitcasting or spinning reel.
Having the stiffest backbone of the three, the rod is also super sensitive giving you a great fishing experience. For pulling the biggest crappie out there, this rod will be the best choice to use.
Tying a Loop Knot
Watch to learn how to tie a Loop Knot. Instead of using Tight Knot Todd Huckabee recommends using a Loop Knot cause you want that Jig Hanging. It allows your Jig to pivot so if your fishing near brush the jig can hit the brush and pivot up without getting caught. Its a really simple knot to master and is one of the strongest knots out there.
