    Default The pound of flesh.

    The Gods of shooting docks demanded their pound of flesh today. After a fish of 2 they fish would go cold on a color. I had 3 rods rigged up and In rotation a B&M sharp shooter, and All Star dock shooter ( both 6' rods) and finally am Okuma Celio 7.5 footer.The okuma is a more flexible rod so it whips pretty good. I got too close to the dock structure and smacked the tip of the rod breaking off and inch and the tip guide. It will be an easy fix.. Now I will have a long custom built dock shooting iron

    Seen my buddy do the same thing on a dock down at Weiss ... and he was standing ON the dock He took about 4" off the end of one of his Berkley Cherrywood rods. Not sure he ever used it again, and probably just bought another one to replace it.

    I sacrificed a nice good shooting little Cherrywood several years ago to the metal frame of a boat lift

    Dock shooting rods take a beating. Breaking a short piece of the tip is no big deal. I did snap one in the middle when I first started trying to send the jig a little bit further under the dock. That one made a splintering crackle sound. It was done

    You guys play a tough game. I guess I baby my stuff a lot. I havenít broken too many and those were totally my fault when trying to get out of a hang up and not pulling with the rod straight. They only flex so much!

    I had done really good for the last few years. The last two trips out. Bent the bail on a reel and then got the rod tip. Guess I was way over due.
