Jeff McGovern's Topwater Special Emmrod

This rig is just a blast to use.  I love topwater lures  and nothing is quite like having a big fish blow up on one.  What you have here is a Packer handle (the metal Emmrod) .  It's wrapped with tennis racket grip tape and has a rubber butt cap used for a more comfortable feel.  Combined with an ABU 5000 casting reel, one of the old red ones, and 16lb Momoi High Catch mono.  I use an under hand or sidearm motion and can throw the plug a mile on this rig.  It's something an experienced bait cast user will really appreciate.  But it's not hard to learn and once mastered is so much fun.
