St. Croix Legend Tournament Bass Casting Rods

$295.00 – $335.00

Reported by
Bob Downey

St. Johns River (FL)

Bob Downey reported catching Largemouth Bass using the Lipless Crankbaits technique and St. Croix Legend Tournament Bass Casting Rods on St. Johns River. Additional comments from this report: "I was fishing pre spawn fish around vegetation. I used a lipless crankbait with a yo-yo style retrieve to trigger bites. I had to switch to a faster action rod because the fish would eat the bait on the fall. I found both gold patterns in the Storm Arashi Vibe to be key in getting larger fish to bite. "

Reported by
Josh Duffel

False River (LA)

Josh Duffel reported catching Largemouth Bass using the Lipless Crankbaits technique and St. Croix Legend Tournament Bass Casting Rods on False River. Additional comments from this report: "We had a few weeks of warmer weather the past few weeks, but did have a couple of recent cold fronts come through leading up to this trip. So with the warmer trend, I figured the South End of the Lake would be good with the shallow flats and cover down there. I was began throwing a few different baits with a couple bites here and there, but once I tied on a Rat-L-Trap the bites really started to pick up. Fishing around docks, grass banks, and lily pads. Lots of little chunks, nothing huge but a fun day on the water! "

Reported by
Phelptwan

Sugarloaf Lake (MI)

Phelptwan reported catching Largemouth Bass using the Lipless Crankbaits technique and Dobyns Rods Champion XP Crankbait Rods on Sugarloaf Lake . Additional comments from this report: "Water temp around 75, lots of fish busting on surface but couldn't get on a top water bite. Tried a ploppers, poppers, walking baits, and frogs, just didn't seem interested. Switched to some lipless cranks and started catching them right off the edges of the lily pads and drop offs. Pretty much cranking them in as fast as we could turn the handles. Did a bit of sight fishing in the shallows and caught them with a wacky worm, but the bait of the day was definitely the red eye."
