Used A Live Baitfish After Hours of Using Frozen Ika "Squid" & Got A Bite Within Minutes!

I'm still using Okuma's new Nesika Surf Rods. I've now fished using the 9', 10' & 12'. If i found any negative aspects i would've reported it back to Okuma, Nothing negative to report. The large Bonefish i caught on the 12' model last month showed me this rod can handle a lot more then that fight. I love the balanced feel. Still need to catch something larger but this line wasn't made for large fish.

My next outing should be at night reef casting for nocturnal species. I still have other equipment to field test but i keep finding myself coming back to the Nesikas. Today was only a small Hammerhead Shark, not a worthy test subject. But it reinforced my objectivity that this is a smooth casting rod when mated with a Blue Azores 4K. The balanced feel coupled with the light weight puts this line of rods high on my arsenal.

The Nesika Rods are great light shore casting rods for spin casting & shoreline bait angling.
