    Baitcaster Float Rod for Salmon

    Although this is a centerpin forum, some of you might be interested in this baitcaster float rod for salmon. I built this rod for my wife to use on our trips to northern Michigan and as a back-up rod for myself, in the event I can’t use my centerpin rods. The blank is a MHX st1355 10-20#, 11’3”. Reel seat is a Fuji standard casting seat. Guides are Fuji alconite. Wraps are Pro Wrap NCP cobalt, summer sky and silver metallic. I set the guides in a Texas twist to get the most from spine of the blank.

    Nice work Bob, that should certainly work well, especially this year with the size of what has been being caught.

    Spiel, How many times a year do the BC rods get used? 2 or 3 would be more than the CP's, you spend too much time at the bench.
