Spring time on the Chesapeake Bay means trolling with big tandem and umbrella rigs for Trophy size Stripers (Rockfish) for most Anglers. For an exciting and productive alternative; consider chunking for Rockfish with light tackle rods. Landing 30lb class fish on an 8-17lb rated rods paired with 3000 size reels, spooled with 15lb braid, tipped with 20lb fluorocarbon leader, 3/0 circle hooks and fresh Alewife is both challenging and rewarding.
Lamiglas TFX Inshore Rods for Stripers
Lamiglas TFX inshore rods (Tri-flex Graphite Inshore) are the perfect tool for the job, offering the perfect blend of backbone and flexibility to hook and land big finicky Rockfish.
The workhorse rod of our rig is the TFX 6615S. This rod works well for chunking, chumming, live lining, casting, jigging and topwater. It is my go to rod for Rockfish Republic client outings.
Our rig consists of Lamiglas TFX Inshore Graphite, Black Salt, Infinity Bass, Excel Inshore and Bluewater Series rods.
We fish with confidence. We fish with Lamiglas.
