We designed these rods to pull salmon and steelhead plugs like the INFAMOUS Hot Shot (hence the name), and that's still their #1 use. But you'll see anglers casting them for silvers, trolling them for big Kings or drifting bait with them for steelhead.
When it comes to PERFORMANCE and all-around fishability, the Mag Bass rods are our pride and joy. These rods, originally designed for pitching jigs and worms for largemouth bass have been discovered by walleye anglers, smallmouth enthusiasts, pike chasers and even light-duty saltwater folks. Pitching is an underhand casting method that allows you to put a bait around visible cover with a nearly splashless entry. When the fish are spooky and a big splash sends them scurrying off and you just can't get close enough to flip, this is the best approach, but these Mag Bass rods are far more VERSATILE than just this one dimension. They're fast-action rods with a powerful, magnum butt section that gives you increased casting range, more effective hook sets (especially in deep water) and superior fish-fighting control. Fuji reel seats, with our "mag touch" exposed blank near the trigger gives you superior sensitivity as well as better casting control. You'll find yourself using these rods for EVERYTHING... jigs, plastic worms, soft jerk baits, and whacky worms. They are available in a wide range of lengths and powers, plus the more popular models come in all four graphite performance levels.
