When the bass are cruising the shallow flats and shallow creek channels in the spring you need a bait that will stay in the strike zone as long as possible yet still have enough action to entice a strike. A good choice is the soft plastic jerkbait. Our “Senko” rods are designed to fish these baits effectively for a number of reasons. Longer rods create a greater casting and hook-setting radius. That means more tip-speed to initiate the hook-set and increased casting distance which is really important since the baits weigh next to nothing. It’s not such a problem with the Senko or the Yum Dinger because they are the heaviest of the soft jerkbaits, but with baits like the Super Fluke, the Bass Assassin and Jerk Worm, you need a rod with a tip that will give you the ability to make nice long casts so you can cover more water, along with enough power to set the hook, even when they’re out there “a country mile”. We offer two levels of performance. The MossyBack rods are our mid-priced models and feature our proprietary “fiber-blend” construction with Fuji guides and reel seats. Our incredibly light and sensitive GLX models feature RECOIL guides, known for their light weight and durability, along with Fuji reel seats. There are two casting rods and one spinning rod in each series to cover all aspects of fishing soft jerkbaits. Look for the “Senko” on the rod!
