    Awesome Product

    Posted by Bret on 27th Jul 2015

    My Emmrod Packer is perfect for the fishing I do which is bank and kayak or Jon boat. I was skeptical at first, after hours of reading reviews and watching YouTube and even called Emmrod,which they were more than happy to answer all my questions I decided to order one. When I got my Packer, I was happy with how sturdy and well built it is. It didn't take long to get the hang of it and I'm already casting as far as my six-foot and 6-6 rod. It a awesome product and I've ordered another Packer and a Packrod spinning rod. I'm so satisfied with these Emmrods that I'm replacing all my long rods with Emmrods,in fact I don't even take the long rods any more.The only regret I have is I didn't do it sooner.

    I ordered late on a Thursday night and received my emmrod on Monday morning. It was a few days before I got to try it. I practiced casting one evening before taking it out in my kayak.I didn't know if I would make it to the water because everyone kept stopping me to ask "what is it?" I got a late start on a hot sunny day and was afraid the fish had stopped biting. Determined to fish with my new rod, I set out with a rooster tail and little else. Working my way between private docks and making short casts of about 12 to 30 feet, I worked the tight spots and somewhat shallow water, mostly retrieving parallell to the shore. Immediately, I got a couple of strikes. A few minutes later I had a large and feisty bream on the hook. A few minutes after that I had a largemouth bass beside the kayak, but he threw the hook as I reached down for him. A few minutes later I landed another largemouth bass about 14" long. The fish stopped biting suddenly, but I persevered. When I returned to the marina, I spent some time explaining the emmrod to all the curious people and showing them pictures of the fish hanging from the emmrod. I decided to go out to the end of the pier and make a couple of casts. On about the third cast I caught a hybrid bass. After tossing him back, I caught another one on the next cast. It was past dark by then and I had to go home sooner or later, so I accepted that it was a decent day of fishing, especially when one considers I haven't fished at all for many years. My new fishing license had barely cooled off from being laminated and I was catching fish with the emmrod. I'm a satisfied customer and now I need to decide on my next purchase,...the packrod spinning or the spinning kayak king.

    Great little pole

    Posted by Unknown on 1st Aug 2014

    Got the packer cast - have only used it once for Croaker. Great for casting esp. when around others - or in tight spaces. Packs easily and carry it in the truck tool box for those just in case moments.
