What kind of rod does everyone use for throwing bulldogs?

14 posts in this topic

Just curious as to what rods people are using for throwing bulldogs. Brand, length, action, etc. What about for throwing pounders?

8.5 Compre XH for me on the mag dawgs. I borrowed a friends St. Croix XXH last fall for pounders and such, it was an 8 foot pool cue.

8'6" monster heavy. From Musky Innovations. I've tried a lot of different ones and thats my favorite. Only thing I dont like is the guides. After one summer I needed to put new guides on it which wasnt a big deal cuz I got it for dirt cheap. Pounders are not a problem casting with that rod.

Hey Matt, I'll have to check out your link. I've done a lot of winter laker fishing up there, and I'm dying to try Manitou for some 'skies!

I've been happy with the Okuma EVx Heavy action for mag's, never thrown a pounder but I'm sure it could handle those as well.
