I have noticed that I get a lot more fish on certain rods when drift fishing. My catmaxx poles just don't seem to have enough action to get good hook sets while drifting. They work well if a monster grabs it but a lot of times the rod is so stiff it seems to set the circle hooks a little early which leads to them getting off more. I noticed on an American Spirit rod I catch a lot more fish and it is very bendy, probably more than I want. I am leaning towards getting some Ugly Stick 7' Medium action Tiger rods for drifting and keep the catmaxx poles for flathead fishing. What do you guys look for in a good drifting rod?
