Mastering the use of big baits – especially precision balanced glide baits, is best done using specialized gear. Big bait aficionado Oliver Ngy of Big Bass Dreams gives us an analytical look at his rod, reel and line preferences when chasing the biggest bass in any given system.
Heavy baits need to be fished on rods rated for heavy lure weights, but with a taper that allows for imparting fish-triggering moves. The rod needs to be mated with a reel up to the tasks of quick line pickup and robust gearing for maximum winching torque. Line choice can vary between heavy monofilament, fluorocarbon, or even a braided mainline to a fluorocarbon leader in certain situations. Apply this information and be ready when a potential personal best tests your abilities and equipment.
