    New Rods Tame the Wildest of Species

  •  So the designers at St. Croix Rod spent a lot of time working with salmon and steelhead anglers over the past couple years to find a solution. We're having tremendous success with the new Wild River rods in great part because the blank designs are so dialed-in to the techniques we use. Onboard west coast guide John Krauthoefer's boat, for example, you'll find heavy-power, moderate-action Wild River rods that can withstand the torque of Delta Divers as well the boisterous strike of a monstrous King from the Pacific Ocean. From handling ripping hardware behind downriggers to delicately delivering the tiniest of tidbits through a slow moving river eddy, and all techniques in-between, finding the right rod series to cover it all has been nearly impossible.

Croix Rod is a family-owned manufacturer of high-performance graphite and fiberglass fishing rods headquartered in Park Falls, Wisconsin. Founded in 1948 to manufacture jointed bamboo fishing poles for a Minneapolis hardware store chain, St. Croix has grown to become the largest manufacturer of fishing rods in North America. Also new for 2013, St. Croix added downrigging and kokanee rods to the expanded Wild River series.  Wild River rods are handcrafted in the USA and feature a 5-year warranty backed by St. Croix Superstar Service. So the designers at St. Croix Rod spent a lot of time working with salmon and steelhead anglers over the past couple years to find a solution. Croix rods are ideal for Great Lakes trout and salmon.  Wild River rods are built on all-new SCII graphite blanks featuring a rich, gold-dust-green metallic finish. We’re having tremendous success with the new Wild River rods in great part because the blank designs are so dialed-in to the techniques we use. The company’s mid-priced Triumph®, Mojo Bass/Inshore/Surf, Eyecon® and Rio Santo series rods are designed and engineered in Park Falls, Wisconsin and built in a new, state-of-the-art manufacturing facility in Fresnillo, Mexico.  Onboard west coast guide John Krauthoefer’s  boat, for example, you’ll find heavy-power, moderate-action Wild River rods that can withstand the torque of Delta Divers as well the boisterous strike of a monstrous King from the Pacific Ocean.

But perhaps the biggest dilemma faced sparring with chrome-flashing thugs is finding one high-quality yet affordable rod series that’ll withstand serious muscle and cover the myriad tactics employed.

Picking out fishing rod?

What's better a one piecee rod or a two piece and why????? Also the rod I'm interested in is a st croix mojo bass rod


Okay, there is a lot to cover but I'll tell you the basics. With a one piece you get more sensitivity, durability, you don't have to worry about your front piece moving or flying and it's better for handling bigger fish. With a two piece you lose some sensitivity, durability and pretty much everything I mentioned above. It is easier to transport around though. If you're not looking for the best, light weight sensitive gear then go with either one. If you are looking for a better rod then go with one piece, I own one piece rods and two piece rods. I use the two piece for lighter fishing, when I'm on a long car ride and the car is already jam packed with stuff, etc. I use the one piece for my main fishing. If I were you, I'd buy a one piece for your main rod then later on if you want and can buy a two piece just in case. Also, the St Croix Mojo Bass is an excellent rod from the reviews I have been reading online. I am looking at buying either a Mojo Bass or Legend Tournament Bass and I am doing a lot of research! I want my money to be well spent! Make sure your money is well spent and that you'll be happy in the end with your purchase and not regret buying something else. The bets thing to do is, do your own research and go and look feel and try out the rods yourself! I hope this helped! Mike

One piece is stronger, a two piece rods weak point is in the middle. Where it seperates, while the one piece is at the bottom
Andrew | Jan 14, 2013
One peice offers more sensitivity. However 2 peice is way easier to transport...I would personally go 1 peice of a rod like that.

i need a little help with fly fishing?

i am just getting into fly fishing, and i want to fly fishing in florida, with bone fish, red fish, snook, trout , and big permit and otehr big fish that eight about 10-30 pound i am planing on spending about 400-600 dollars on a good reel and 200-300 on a good rod. i just don't know what weight is the best for that kind of inshore fishing like 9/10 wt? and what brand of reel adn rod can match my need


I would recommend a 9 or 10 weight. Load it with weight forward line, as you will most likely face a good bit of wind. You can spend what you like, but be careful you are buying a rod and reel, as opposed to buying a name. There are lots of good rods and reels on the market, and with advances in technology, any high modulus graphite rod is good. I own several outfits, ranging from a 9' 8-weight to a 6' 3-weight. Brands range from St. Croix Legend Ultra to a beautiful custom made 7'8" 3-weight. None has effectively outperformed my Temple Fork Outfitters rod, which, paired with a Lamson Velocity Reel, has landed several respectable small mouth bass. I have less than $400 in the whole outfit, even including the $245 price tag on the reel. It is a 9' 8-weight, and I believe a 9- or 10-weight will land even the toughest bone fish. The most important thing is that you are comfortable with the outfit you choose. Let personal feel be the final determining factor. Good luck. Tight lines.

    Excellent fly rod

    I (Sheila's husband) purchased this rod (9-ft, 5-wt, 4-piece) several months ago and paired it with a Lamson Guru reel and SA textured line. My wife, son, and I have used it extensively since then, mainly for trout and mainly with larger dry flies, though occasionally with a #16 Adams and occasionally with a 6-ft sinking leader and medium streamer. We are all very fond of this rod. It casts easily, covers distance nicely, and drops the fly quite gently.I don't believe one rod can be the best at all things. The qualities that make a rod an excellent rod for #20 BWO dries are incompatible with a rod that excels at throwing sinking line with big ugly streamers, or double nymph rigs with thingamabobbers. But this rod makes an excellent general purpose rod that has a very smooth feel and even seems to have "soul". Fit and finish, cork and reel seat are top notch.I own (and have owned) many high-end rods from several companies (Winston, Sage, GLoomis in particular). This rod... 5/5 Sheila - See all my reviews, September 8, 2013
