CJ Peterson

Table Rock Lake (AR, MO)

CJ Peterson reported catching Largemouth Bass using the Hard Body Swimbaits technique and Dobyns Rods Champion XP Swimbait Rods on Table Rock Lake. Additional comments from this report: "Fished main lake pockets with wood in them. Bigger class fish would come out of those piles to check out the swimbait. Tricking them with small twitches seem to entice them to close the distance on the bait. Several missed opportunities and should have kept it in my hand all day! "

Jenko Savant Swimbait Casting Rod

$269.99

Reported by
CJ Xiong

Jetzers Lake (WI)

CJ Xiong reported catching Largemouth Bass using the Hard Body Swimbaits technique and Jenko Savant Swimbait Casting Rod on Jetzers Lake. Additional comments from this report: "Quick 1 hour outing fishing from the bank and pier. Very warm, but extremely windy. Threw my baits near the dock and reeds. Had many chase my large glide bait with 1 bite. Caught several on a megabass z2 crankbait. Most productive was throwing a smaller profile jig along the reeds. Used 14lb Shimano Mastiff FC. I've had several trips out with this line and I'm beginning to enjoy it. Very manageable and strong. Overall good line, I may make the switch from Sunline to Shimano Mastiff."
