Push the boundaries with our one-of-a-kind Technique-Specific Deep Water Jigging Rod. I specifically designed this rod for one purpose, to effectively and efficiently work a variety of jigs in ultra deep water from 400 to over 1,000 ft. At 6’0″ in length the Black Hole carbon fiber parabolic blank provides fast action but has ample backbone to subdue the most determined bottom fish from near abyssal depths.
If you are serious about upping your game and connecting with golden tilefish, snowy grouper, queen snapper and other highly prized deep water game fish, you must have the correct tackle. This incredibly specialized rod features spiral wrapped top shelf Fuji guides, an ultra light Fuji graphite reel seat and hardened nylon gimbal. Pair with a Daiwa Saltiga 30HA loaded with 20 lb. PE line for the ultimate deep water penetration. Ideally suited for jigs to 800 grams but the sweet spot is 400-500.

Line/Lure Ratings: Nearly every rod on the market includes a label or etching indicating suggested weight ratings. This is merely a suggestion as no rod performs equally well casting a 1 oz. lure and a 6 oz. lure. Line ratings are also suggestive with different implications from one manufacturer to the next.
Length: The length of a rod is vital. With spinning rods increased length provides greater casting distance, a useful attribute on the flats when sight fishing wary predators. Extra casting distance is also beneficial when throwing lures into a headwind and when fishing from the surf. Conversely, a shorter rod is a better choice when skipping lures under docks and overhanging mangrove shorelines, and for increased backbone when battling powerful game fish.
Guides: Selecting the proper guides is often a puzzle. With no moving parts, Fuji K Guides are the easiest to maintain and are an excellent choice when fishing monofilament or braid. AFTCO Roller guides provide the benefit of reduced line wear and fatigue, which can cause premature tackle failure during extended battles. Roller guides are typical on big game trolling rods, but far less vital on light to medium class tackle.
Grips: Cork grips weigh next to nothing and provide a firm grip on inshore/backcountry rods. EVA foam is the standard for all near-shore and offshore saltwater rods.
Reel Seats: Aluminum reel seats are standard on big game stand-up/trolling rods when using reel clamps otherwise lightweight graphite is the best choice.
Reel Pairings: Please contact Florida Sport Fishing directly to discuss recommended reel pairings.
