I'm a little late on this but I want to thank Capt Jerry Dilsaver for writing this article in the December edition of Carolina Sportsman. We had a good day of fishing artificials on the Cape Fear. We caught stripers early then hit the flats for reds and trout. We were using 7 St Croix Triumph med/light action rods on the flats pitching weightless baits and 7'4" St Croix Mojo Heavy action casting rods for Stripers.

Not a giant by any means, but this is textbook drop-shot technique...mark a fish, drop down, give the bait a couple of shakes, and fish on! My favorite drop shot rods are the St Croix Avid or Legend Elite medium-light power, extra-fast action. #stcroixrods #bestrodsonearth
