Bowfin I caught on a 4-8 # 4 piece MAGS custom travel rod. What a fun ride this was in Steinhatchee, Florida.
Got on a full moon smallie topwater bite. Super sensitive and tons of fun to fish.
Great rod, thanks again Pat!
I haven't seen many 4 piece rods, but I've only heard great things about MAGS quality so I gave it a shot. Pat recommended the Carbon X 1000 reel to go with it and wow! Took it on my trip to upstate NY (flew with it in my carry-on) for smallie fishing and it produced double digit fish every day. As sensitive as my one-piece, great action and much more backbone than I expected.
I can't recommend this setup enough, thanks Pat!
