Justin provided some insights into the rod, reel, line, he was using to fish the 5″ Berkley Hollow Belly, single swimbait style. I found his input very interesting. The above video gives insights into the Powell 765 Swimbait Rod that Justin was using to fish the 5″ Berkley Hollow Belly Swimmer (Hitch color) , combined with an Abu Garcia Revo SX reel, and 17# Berkley 100% Florocarbon line. Notice what Justin says about the importance of the action of the rod, and the speed of the reel. “Not too fast, not too slow”. I couldn’t agree more. I am not a 100% florocarbon guy with swimbaits most times, but if I was going to be, fishing open water, mid water column/suspended fish is where I’d fish it! Justin is on point, his fishing, positive vibration and momentum speak volumes.
