Scaling down your rods as a Co-Angler
Category : BACK DECK
How many rods do you need for a Bass tournament? That is an age-old question that has a simple answer… ALL OF THEM! Usually this is not an issue if you’re running your own boat, but if you’re a Co-Angler, you do not have this luxury. You have to get the maximum performance and flexibility out of each rod and reel combination. As a Co-Angler, you need to be able to do more with less.
When I’m heading to the majority of my events, I limit myself to 7 or 8 rods. Some people may call that excessive, but with the unique rod storage capabilities of my Elite Rod Sleeves, I can easily manage that many rods. I ran into a unique situation in an Everstart event last year where the Co-Anglers were limited to a 5-rod limit. This really caused me to stop and analyze what 5 rods can give me the most variety of fishing options, and this is what I came up with.
