Finally got my swimbait setup together. Stoked to try it out. I've been wanting to get a bait casting reel and a heavy swimbait rod but just didn't have the money. So, I realized I could possibly use my Penn 10 level wind that I take to San Diego every year to fish sand bass and what not off the party boats. I messed around with my Penn and another rod I had and decided that i would have no issue casting, especially with the heavy lures I intend to use. I wanted to get a nicer Okuma guide select big bait rod but decided to go with a cheaper option in the bass pro graphite series heavy action rod. Got some lures with a couple more on the way and am super stoked to get out and try to catch something on a big swimbait. I have a couple bbz1 juniors, a 3:16 rising son carp(that I got to imitate suckers), and a couple others. Before every chimes in to state that you can catch fish without this gear, I understand that. I just want to try something different and have another/different rig at my disposal. It'll be fun to try it out on walleye, lakers, lmb, stripers and more. I also can't wait to try it out at spinney and eleven mile from the float tube for pike.
