Top 5 Rods for Kayaks and Other Small Crafts

Kayaks, float tubes, and other small boats present a unique set of challenges for bass fisherman. Unlike the larger bass boats, small crafts require unique gear to fish effectively. From length restrictions to dialing in the actions to account for instability, there are a lot of aspects to consider when purchasing equipment.

Below we break down the top 5 rods that we recommend for an angler that is seriously considering fishing from a tube, kayak, jon boat, etc. These are rods that work for a variety of techniques and won't break the bank. 

With these 5 rods you should be able to throw a dropshot, a frog, and everything in between.

Tim's 2017 Rod and Reel Arsenal

In today's video Tim shows his 2017 rod and reel combos. From affordable to outrageous, he's got an assortment of gear that puts most tackle shops to shame! Our viewers asked for a tour of our gear so here it is...

We both LOVE high end bass fishing gear but we know that not everyone can afford to use the best gear on the market. We spent years and years using low end bass fishing rods and have slowly worked our way up. Don't feel pressured to spend outside of your budget but when the time is right, be sure to check out the equipment we use as a point of reference for your own fishing.
