I recently bought my GX2 four piece travel spinning rod. I took it out to a fresh water lake in Puerto rico on 2/25/2017, can't wait to show you the pictures of two peacock basses I caught. The rod tip bent all the way forward and held up just fine I am very happy. For the price I paid this rod performed well and exceeded my expectations. I recommend the GX2 rod to all fishermen / women.
I have used my GX2 to fish for sharks and there was no problem at all. It casts amazing and its really smooth. The best combo you can get for the price.
I've used open face reels for the longest but wanted a good spincast like dad and I used back in the day. I paired this with the Pflueger Trion 10SCB, which is a $70 combo and well worth it. I miss these spin cast reels and use it quite often now. Ugly Stick is known to be strong and dependable, great rods and no since to spend a crazy amount of money when you can get these at such a good price.
I always have liked Ugly stik, and the GX2 no exception. Gave the 7' and the 6' a little overhand swing in the aisle, and the 6' is more easy to control with one hand, but I could definitely tell there was more power in the 7' with two hands. Went with the 6' because it felt better balanced, and love it. I'm going to end up getting a 7' too. I was especially happy with the guides; safe for braid, and don't corrode in salty water!
After recently snapping my fresh water rod I was looking for a sturdy replacement. I popped into Academy and i knew i wanted a ugly stik which one of my friends suggested them for their extreme durability so i found this one and luckily it was on sale for $10 off but i love this pole ! very durable and still very sensitive I may even get another one while its still on sale !
I have to say that Shakespeare Ugly Stick has been a favorite of mine and my fishing friends and hopefully soon my children's go to rode. Not that you shouldn't try other rods and systems. I'm a man that likes variety and choices. But I always find myself comparing other rods and rod combos to the Shakespeare UglyStick. I just got the new GX2 and can't wait to try it out. At first glance it catches your eye with the black matte clean look backed by the red and black chrome accents. But you know ... that's not all looks, it's new Shakespeare graphite and fiberglass technology. I'm sure with this upcoming fishing season it's gonna be a knockout!
I bought this line for my ice fishing reels and it has performed very well. It is very flexible, strong and sensitive. No complaints here! As an angler that has used monofilament line for over 20 years, I am happy with the switch.
I have Fireline Crystal on 7 of my 9 fishing rods.My Ambaseduer 6500 has had the same fused crystal line on it 4 years now, and remains as strong as the day I spooled it. This line has no memory, which lessens the possibility of backlash. My spinning reels also have crystal, and are fantastic.. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
This is the best bait for fishing when you want to just tie on a lure and throw it out and regardless of how you reel it in it will catch bass/crappie big and small. i went fishn with my brother one day and he grab some shad colored ones and after I say how they just attacked it all day I was sold on them. I found that if you are not using a light action or UL rod you will have trouble with fish gettn off them. These swimbaits do not need much of hook set cause the fish bite on and swims off ... if you jerk it will let go before hook set I just reel down onto the tension and the fish kickn its tall will set the hook if the rod is to stiff they will get off normal.
My partner and I were fishing Lake El Salto in Mexico in July 2016. We located fish with the 10 inch power worm black/blue. When that bite slowed down we started using the 4 inch pre-rigged swim shad (chartreuse shad). When we finished the ore or two hours of fish every third or fourth cast, we had caught more than 60 bass that averaged 4.5 to 5 pounds. A good day for Lake El Salto, a GREAT day for any other lake!
This reel is the backbone of the Penn all purpose saltwater line in my opinion. Quality build, easy to service and repair. Smooth drag and indestructible. Have had mine, (2 of them), for over 15 years and are still as reliable today as the day I bought them. Use them for trolling, kingfish, dolphin, sailfish and grouper as well as conventional bottom fishing for grouper, black bass, grunts, snappers and the "reef donkey" amberjacks. Highly recommend these reels if you want a reliable, all ... purpose reel that you can depend on for years to come. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
i bought a 115L2 Senator (9/0) and matched it with my 9/0 senator boat rod. I loaded the reel down with around 550 yards of 80 lb bullbuster mono and have had a load of fun landing sharks off the beach. Smooth drag, simple and effective designing makes the senator the go to reel for any large fish. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
I needed extra equipment on a budget and chose this rod. I currently use four of these along side a $100 rod and frankly can not tell the difference in performance. I tournament bass fish several times a month and would highly recommend this rod to my friends.
Have been using these rods and love them would highly recommend that
This product is amazing sharp hooks, durable and also comes in all the weight's and colors i need i will be spreading the word about this jighead.
I started using these jig heads as soon as they come out. They work really great. The crappie love them. They have not failed to put fish in my boat yet.
I bought this recently and have caught many fish on it. This lure in black and blue is big time at night. If you fish at night, then you need to have at least two of these in your box.
Used in the Texas gulf while fishing for bait fish and Spanish mackerel with Berkeley mantis shrimp in the surf and worked good
I bought these along with some other items from academy for my husbands birthday!! He's a big fisher/Hunter!! He was super excited to get these!!
I use this combo all the time. I never have any issues & it always loved up to my expectations. It's is an amazing combo and I would not use any other.
Love this new combo it very light and cast great this is my second GX2 and I may just replace all my old Ugly Sticks with these very light and just great to use
Good hooks, sharp and keeps frogs up right bring through weeds..
I bought this months ago, and only recently did I realize its AMAZING! Went fish spearing and caught around 5 fish. Stick is great, but can be slippery at times.
I bought a few a these and when things were slow tried out the unpainted 1/4 ounce with Smelt Gulp! minnow and then outfished my bud 3 to 1 and all fish were bigger then all of his. Just let it fall and short straight twitches toward the boat and wham wally comes to visit. Brought his family also. Love these jigs
They cost a little more than I like to pay, but they last longer than most that I have used in salt water. The paint and the eyes do not peel or fall out, so if u take the time and clean them and sharpen the hooks after each trip, they are worth the extra money u spend.
When you put this hook on a ribbit lure frog...the swim action is great and makes it easy to hook that big bass. I have used them this past summer. I recommend them to anyone who likes fishing top water. Use them and get ready for a show!
This line is essential if you want to fish in cover or for trolling. I would not use anything other than this line when I am trolling because you never know what you are going to catch when you are trolling so you want to make sure that you are prepared.
It a was a great deal. I would like to see it again but with a bigger spool, more than 110yds.
I bought these swim baits in a Academy Tx store and brought them back to Tulsa, OK and I just now got to try them out 6/25/16 and caught three stripers. I am about to order more right now.
