(Jan 27, 2015 - Springfield, MO) Catfish anglers are a special breed.  They seek their prey in places, conditions, and hours of the night that send lesser anglers seeking a warm bunk and the coffee pot.  They need equipment purpose-built for their rough and tumble sort of fishing. The Bass Pro Shops® CatMaxx Casting Rods and CatMaxx Spinning Rods are exactly that kind of gear.

The ultra-tough rod blanks are made of E-glass and carbon to go toe-to-toe with heavy, hard-fighting fish. The addition of reinforced Pac Bay DPL guides helps these rods withstand the battering that comes with heavy use whether fishing from the bank or a boat. EVA cushioned handles are rugged and comfortable with crosshatched shrink-wrap for secure grip even when wet. A flared rubber butt enhances comfort and leverage when battling the big ones. Integrated, cushioned reel seats securely lock your reel in place.

To help detect strikes at night, Bass Pro Shops® CatMaxx Rods are made with high visibility white blanks.

The range of rod lengths and actions in the CatMaxx rod lineup covers every catfishing location, technique, and bait presentation.  Casting style rods range from 7-foot medium heavy to 15-foot heavy power ratings. Spinning rods are from 8 feet to 10 feet in medium heavy to heavy power ratings.  There’s a rod length and action that allows you to fish lighter half-ounce rigs for channels all the way up to one that will let you toss a half a pound to hold a bait in heavy current.
