Torson and Maloney say longer rods with medium-heavy power and a moderate-fast action are ideal for both of these moving-bait presentations. “St. Croix offers a 74MHMF model in its BassX Series and a 76MHMF model in its Mojo Bass series that excel in these presentations,” Torson says. “You can go longer or shorter than that based on your personal preference, but that medium-heavy to heavy power and more forgiving action – moderate to moderate-fast – is key. Rods in this class also tend to make ideal tools for dragging Carolina rigs, which is another highly effective late-summer presentation.”
