best rod and reel for bass


Recommended Posts

You do know how to adjust your drag right? By hitting the + key, you increase the drag setting on your reel (Having made sure you're not going far enough to break the rod or the line) and the fish will find it tougher to strip line from your reel. Voila! Shorter fights!

  My personal favorite bass rig is: Jig Winner (13 pound max line weight, 8 foot something length), Espira MLR with max drag of 13 pounds ( 4500?), and 12 pound line (or 10 pound braid if the unique large mouth bass is not a possibility). Play with the drag to suit your preference, being aware that you cannot turn the reel drag to the max or you'll break your line every time.

tight lines.
