Children’s Miracle Network Tournament

Pro Staffers Claude and Ryan fished the Children’s Miracle Network Tournament in West Virginia yesterday and placed 4th out of 39 boats with 44.96 pounds. All 3 fish turned in were blues and tuned back one other blue and two Flatheads. Claude said we were getting down all morning with no fish and only couple bites. Pulled up to spot we said we was going to fish next time we came over and that’s when we started catching them all between 12- 2:30. Three things got accomplished on this trip. We caught our West Virginia blues, and got to break in 1 of the new Blackhorse Pro Drift series then both of the custom rods. The Pro Drift for bumping is flat out awesome. Very light and comfortable in you hand and we could feel everything. Also the new customs rods load up perfect.

Pro Staff Reynolds & Moran July 25th

Pro Staffers Claude Reynolds and Ryan Moran fished the Cabela’s King Kat Circut this past weekend in Metropolis, IL and came away with an 11th place finish. Claude said “It turned rough with the river on hard drop for everyone fishing the day of the tournament.” “The water drop took us and lots of others game plan right out the door.” “For us it turned to a run and gun kinda day finding spots fishing and moving.” “But that’s why they call it fishing and not catching. Team Parkside Marine/Elite Rod Holders Catfishing weighed in one fish @ 32.68 # Great job under tough conditions guys

Pro Drift Series ~ Bumpin Rod

Pro Drift Series Rods…This is the ultimate hand rod for drifting catfish. If you back bounce while drifting then the Pro Drift Series is the best rod made for what you do. The most sensitive, strongest, bouncing rod made anywhere. These are not carbon junk or cheap graphite. These rods are made of the highest quality graphite on the market and are not a wimpy bass or musky rod converted to catfishing. The Pro Drift rod is made for catfish, big catfish, and can be used for drift or anchor fishing, but is built to hold in your hand while drifting. “NOTHING COMPARES…NOTHING!!! If you don’t think these are the best on the market, contact Jeff Dodd, Russ Devore, Jason or Vicky Mathenia, Jason Jackson, Tony Hunt, Doc Lang, Justin Wolfe, Bill Parfit, Josh Mayes, Cindy Stokes or a host of other tournament fishermen that are currently using these rods.

For those looking for Bumpin Rods, here is something to consider when purchasing a rod. Graphite is the lightest and strongest material. However, there are many varieties of graphite, depending on manufacturing quality and process. Modulus is a term that describes the stiffness to weight ratio of the graphite that’s used to create the rod blank. So when you are bouncing or cast a lure, the rod flexes with the weight of the lure, storing energy as it flexes. When the motion of the rod stops, the rod flexes and releases all of its stored energy. When you increase the modulus of the graphite, you increase the ability of that graphite to store and release energy. This not only increases the strength of the rod but also sensitivity. You also increase the speed that the rod releases the stored energy and the reaction speed and power of the blank. Most if not all production rods use a standard 33 million modulus graphite blank to build on, the very expensive blanks use 42 million modulus blanks to build on. The Blackhorse Pro Drift rod is built on a 55 million modulus blank, that is why is is the strongest, most sensitive rod made for back bouncing or bumpin on the market today.

Call me if you have any questions about this Rod.
