I was playing around with a rig for heavy pulling big fish out of a kayak. I love my little metal fishing rods so here is yet another way to play with our Emmrod CQC rod. I've been working with adding a Shimano 300D series Curado which is a big fish beater when it comes to low profile bait cast reels. This one is loaded with box rated 20lb Fireline and can carry a short section of heavy mono as a leader. Should be wonderful for big fish who want to just tear a plug off the surface. A soon to come fishing day with a very busy adult daughter will be a great time for a trial on the water.
