Where to buy that dope sweatshirt:

NOTE: If there is a specific rod you are looking for that is not on Tackle Warehouse, call this number (714-893-0423) and let someone know there that Fishing The Midwest said to call that number to order a stick through the phone.

Yea another NOTE: I did not pay full price for these reels. Most of them I got half or more through eBay which is a great way to find some pretty solid deals. Just make sure you are buying from a reputable source.

Fishing Tackle Set Up For Pitching To Bass

This is the equipment and tackle that I use for pitching and roll casting to cover. This is a techniques that is highly effective for going down a bank quickly or strategically picking apart a small area to catch bass. Docks, vegetation, stumps, lay down logs, holders, marinas, and standing timber are some examples of what kind of cover the technique is good for. Using texas rigged plastics and small jigs, you can prob the cover more efficiently than you can with a hard bait like a crankbait or spinnerbait.

I got this pen rod from a friend and wanted to try it out on some big channel catfish in a retention pond. It has 10lb mono on it and I was using hot dog as bait. I’m surprised it didn’t break and it actually held up quite well against a 10+lb catfish. Thanks for watching!
