When it takes, on the average, 10,000 casts to catch one of these toothy critters, you’d better have your game on and that includes the right equipment. Muskie are so elusive anglers are happy to have a couple of “follows” during a day on the water. The lures are big, the line is heavy and the rods have to be powerful to handle them, not to mention the fish. These are ambush-oriented creatures that come out of nowhere to chase down the right bait when presented properly. They are explosive, tough fighters and you have to be aggressive, not to mention patient. If everything works perfectly… success! One false move and you go home wondering, “what if”. Muskies aren’t all giants, but even a small one is a challenge and the reward validates the risk. It’s a world of big baits and they are trending even bigger. Giant swimbaits, huge plugs, oversized in-line, bucktail spinners and huge spinnerbaits require long, powerful rods to cast and control these babies. It’s not a game for the faint of heart! We’ve spent a lot of time studying the fish, the lakes, the rivers and the anglers who call the Muskellunge their fish of choice. We’ve created a series of casting rods just for you die-hards that will do everything you ask and more. They aren’t your everyday Muskie rod, but then Muskies aren’t your everyday fish. These new rods are long, powerful, high performance fishing instruments designed specifically to fish the new hi-tech baits. You’ll cast farther, find them surprisingly light for all that power and be confident that when the “moment” happens you’ll be in total control. Carpe diem!
