Fishing with the EmmRod… First Cast, First Fish! #emmrod

By / May 29, 2019 / Fishing

On a whim bought an EmmRod in their Kayak King Spinning Rod model to use for kayak fishing. Put the order in while on a cruise last week. Rod arrived while we were having fun in the sun and ocean.

On our return, rigged up an old spinning reel that we managed to get working again… 30+ year old reel, and then mounted it on the EmmRod.

Took it to a local pond and free-lined bread “mashed” around a circle hook. After about 15″ caught a nice Catfish!

Not bad for the first cast, first fish on the little rod. Cannot wait to try it kayak fishing!

G’Day Glenn,
A decent catfish on that Emmrod. I have a short pistol grip spring steel rod, not an Emmrod but similar style. I’ved matched it with a small Abu spincast reel and fished lures and flies under a bubble float for trout. Very compact and works well.
Cheers,
Steve.

Thanks Steve! Liking the rod, hope to try kayak fishing with it! Also, saw they make a fly rod version of it. May be one to try too!

Glenn,
I have considered the fly rod version of the Emmrod but the conversion rate and postage to OZ ruled it out. It’s really short length could make it very useful in tight places.
Cheers again,
Steve.
