It was 36 degrees out with 39 degree water temps and I landed on a mega school of wintering fish. Best day of jerkbait fishing ever for numbers. God I love to jerkbait fish. Nothing over 3-05 but at least 20+ in that low 3 range with another dozen in the 2’s. I had 12 rods with me but only used the Steez with a Vision 110 in the 3hrs I fished. That rod protected those Katsuage hooks perfectly and kept every fished buttoned up. I had one bent tine after all those fish. At only 3.3ozs it was a blast to throw. I used a curado 70 but an Aldebaran 50mgl would be an 8.8oz rig made in heaven. I got this rod for 163.00 and American Legacy just auctioned one off for 150 shipped...if you like to throw Visions, you have to try this rod. Especially if you don’t like your jerkbait rods over 6-6. Also check the TT review, it was an Ultimate Enthusiast winner.
How long ago did you get the rod from ALF?
Here’s one new with tags still in the wrapper

When using baitcating, I use a pair of the cheapest priced rods I own! Lol
A pair of 13 Fishing Defy Black 6'7" MH rods. They have a somewhat moderate action, and fish jerkbaits well!

GLX 842 is handling my jerk bait duties at the moment. Still researching rods to see what would be better.

Was using a Megabass Orochi X4 Oneten Stick, but switched to an Orochi XX Flatside and like the length better for casting.

How long is the flatside?

Megabass Orochi Double X Flat Side Special Gen 1. Works well for 110's and Pointer 100's.
