Trolling rods

2 posts in this topic

Well, with the summer crainkbait bite starting to go fairly well, I tried out my new Mitchell trolling rod. Jason offers three different lenfth rods.

These rods are great for using leadcore or for crankbait fishing. With the different length rods, one can get the line away from ones boat. One can also use planer boards also to help get ones lures away from the boat.

The three models are the JMST50LC which is a 5' model.

Another is the JM580TMF whicjh is the 8' model.

Then to really get the biat away from the boat check out the JMST14M which is the 14 footer.

All of these rods are great for using crankbaits and also using leadcore.

The fall bite is not that far away, so check out these quality rods from Mitchell rods.

I really like my 8 footer and am looking at the 5ft model also before the fall bite.

Glad to see you had good success with your trolling rods from JM.. Very well constructed rods for the money, thats for sure.. And with the different lengths, a person can stagger their trolling presentations to a T, either in open water, structure, or river scenarios.

Having longer and shorter trolling rods are a big hit now, especially in the realm of trolling rivers and weedlines. Use the long 14 footers to comb the edges with lead and or long line approaches and stack in the 8 and 5 footers to cover a huge swath of water, horizontally and vertically.

Personally, I use a lot of these rods, for many different tactics and species and love them to death. From pitching jigs, to trolling, to slip bobbering ,and to bottom bouncing. JM Rods has ya covered.. Oh, and the 7'0" spinning rod makes a great drop shot rod for smallies!! smile
