Four of 2017’s Best Fishing Rods

Are you planning on visiting us at Lawrence Bay Lodge for your next fishing trip? If so, you should think about buying a new fishing rod so you’ll be fully prepared to reel in a big catch. If you’re not sure which fishing rod to choose, fret not. There have been plenty of models introduced this year and we will give you the lowdown on the top four fishing poles for trout and walleye, with help from Field & Stream.

Fitzgerald Rods Vursa

The spinning models of the Vursa series make stellar panfish or trout rods. They have a fast tip and moderate taper and can cast a 1/8- ounce weight nicely. Every Fitzgerald Rod is made to be used in both fresh and saltwater with no issues. With an American Tackle AirWave guide, the casting distance is indestructible. With an appealing finished stick and comfortable reel seat, the Vursa is a nice option and named the “best of the test” for panfish or trout.

Lew’s Wally Marshall Speed Shooter

With a sharp blue-and-neon green finish, this pole has great sensitivity and also makes for a great panfish or trout rod. Like the Vursa, this pole also uses American Tackle AirWave guides, whose spiral shape helps line flow and helps the Speed Shooter fire a 1/8-ounce weight.

Dobyns Sierra Series

Many of the models in this series make phenomenal walleye rods. The series showcases Fuji Alconite guides, Fuji reel seats and quality cork handles. The Dobyns Sierra Series is perfect in several categories including casting, sensitivity blank quality and feel and finish.

Lew’s Mach Speed Stick

This pole is incredibly lightweight and also has great feel and finish features such as Winn Grips, which provide a solid and comfortable hold. The Mach Speed Stick also has the American Tackle AirWave guide for longer casts.
