Okuma Fishing Tackle TCS-C-661M+ Scott Martin Concept TCS Jerk/Crank Technique Specific Casting Rods

  • Scott Martin designed rods for tournament concept fishing
  • All rods have been designed for specific tournament applications
  • 30-Ton carbon, ultra sensitive blank construction
  • Customized C-40X carbon reel seats on casting and spinning
  • Hard aluminum oxide guide inserts for use with braided line
Scott Martin attributes his success as a professional angler to versatility. Instead of a master of one technique, his goals include the highest level of proficiency from technique to technique, water body to water body. But versatility for Martin does not stop at simply attracting strikes. He's keenly aware that it takes fish in the live well to win. Within the development of all‐new TCS (Tournament Concept Series) bass rods, Martin's designs deliver a concise set of tour­‐ready rods that not only focus on power and sensitivity, but also casting accuracy, maintaining hook hold and supreme balance to ward off fatigue. At the core of all Scott Martin TCS rods are 30-Ton carbon fiber blanks. As Martin describes it, knowledge is power and being able to feel and understand every bump and tap a lure makes, or respond to every move a fish makes, allows him to respond correctly. Even the crankbait rod is 30-Ton carbon fiber. In Martin's game plan, there's no application for fiberglass.

Guide to Topwater Fishing: Choosing and Using Surface Lures for Bass

  • Used Book in Good Condition
From the Introduction: Decades of information, wisdom, and experimentation by the pros are all contained herein. This book is of particular value because topwaters, unlike other hard baits, come in myriad styles. Some come with props while others have appendages protruding from their bodies. Others, like the weedless spoon, are simple slabs of plastic and metal. If you are a believer that variety is the spice of life, then topwaters are for you. The only challenge to topwater fishing, if there really is one, is how to choose from the numerous options. This book will point you in the right direction. Then, all you will need to do is tie on the right weapon and make your own music.

Saltwater fishing is a lot different from freshwater fishing. Therefore, you will need different types of equipment. One of the main decisions you will make will be choosing the type of fishing poles that you use. The type you choose will depend on what type of saltwater fishing you plan to do.

Before you buy your saltwater fishing poles there are a few things that you should take into consideration. The three main types of saltwater fishing are inshore, offshore and surf fishing. When you go inshore fishing you will stay mainly in the shallow water. This means that most of the fish you catch will be of small to medium size. You will need to purchase a fishing pole that is strong enough to hold up to approximately a twenty pound fish without snapping. However, at the same time it needs to be lightweight enough to not induce fatigue. Saltwater fishing poles are also designed for fishing from piers.

There are two methods and two types of fishing poles used when inshore fishing, they are listed below along with a brief description.

Spinning Fishing Poles -These poles are similar in design but they are used with a spinning reel. The beginner may find this type of rod and reel to be the easiest for them to use. Lightweight lures will also work very well with this type of fishing pole.

When offshore fishing you will encounter larger fish and you will need saltwater fishing poles that can also endure the extra weight you will be dealing with. The three methods used for offshore fishing are listed below.

Bottom Fishing
Fly Fishing
Surf fishing is growing in popularity and the saltwater fishing poles designed for this type of fishing are considered specialty poles. They are designed to be used with both the conventional casting reels and spinning reels. They are designed in three different lengths which are nine, twelve and fourteen feet long. These long lengths will allow you to make longer casts but you should be prepared for them to be a little heavier than many of the other fishing poles.

Once you have determined what type of fishing you plan on participating in, you should take into consideration the special quality of each saltwater fishing pole. There are four main qualities that separate one fishing pole from another. These are listed below.

Total Length

The butt of the fishing pole is the distance between the very back end of the pole and the reel. The casting poles have the shorter butts followed by the spinning pole and then the bottom saltwater fishing poles or trolling poles have the longest butt lengths. It is up to the angler to choose the one that suits their size the best.
