“Whether you pitch, flip, crank, dropshot, jerk, skip, stroke, jig, worm, Carolina rig, spinnerbait, swim bait, or fish frog baits, Fenwick has built the perfect rod to meet your specific needs.” – Fenwick
Bassin' USA was given the opportunity to review four different Fenwick rods from their HMG Series and EliteTECH Smallmouth Series. Several of our ProStaff members set out to test these new rods in various conditions, with different presentations and combinations.
Fenwick is a well-known brand amongst all anglers when it comes to fishing rods. They have prided themselves on building rods that last throughout the years and to develop technologies to improve upon rod features.
Choosing the right equipment doesn’t have to be that complicated. I will give you as much information on the three basic setups I think will give you a good start without costing you a fortune. I would suggest going with two bait casters and one spinning rig. In the past I would recommend going to a dedicated sporting goods store to get what you need, but now most retail stores are carrying a good selection of quality rods and reels. In my area, Walmart is now carrying brands like Diawa, Abu Garcia, Falcon, Wright and McGill and Quantum.
