Saturday, February 5th, 2011

Thanks for this great information Philip!  You caught a great fish!  Sounds like you overcame that great obstacle all we fishermen fight–snags and weeds.

“Today I was fishing in a kelp forest off of Palos Verdes with my Eemmrod Packer. I wasn’t casting, but simply dropping my lure in the thick kelp forest. This works well because boats can’t fish these areas due to the thick kelp, but the kayak works great. I caught a 21″ 6lb calico and the emmrod performed amazingly. I really like the 7 coil rod and believe it can take on a much stronger fish than 5lbs as rated. When I caught this bass I had to drag it out of the kelp so I didnt let it take any line. The 7 coil rod provided more than enough strength to muscle this fish in. Great fishing Rod especially on the Kayak!”
