Okuma Classic Pro GLT Trolling Rods

Description

The Okuma Classic Pro GLT Trolling Rods are fine tuned for the Great Lake's trolling angler. These rods feature durable construction and actions tailored specifically for use with downriggers, Dipsy Diver-type diving disks and copper and leadcore sinking wires.

All Classic Pro GLT Trolling Rods feature fiberglass blank construction, uplocking Fuji-style reel seats with stainless steel hoods, and heavy duty, double foot stainless steel guides. The Eva grips provide comfort for long days on the water. The butt section of the grips feature a rubberized, shrink tube overlay which provides additional gripping power for wet hands and makes it easier to remove from a rod holder.

Additional features of these rods include:

  • Specialized Great Lakes actions
  • Durable fiberglass blank construction
  • Double footed, stainless steel guides
  • Titanium oxide guide inserts on Lake Trolling, Dipsy Diver and Downrigger models
  • Solid stainless steel guides on Copper/Leadcore wire models

  • Tip over butt ferrule connections
  • Hook keeper
  • Backed by Okuma's 1 year warranty

About Me:

I bought one of these to replace a broken rod and liked it so much I ended replacing all my rods with them. The triangular grip feels great, the silicon wrap on the bottom handle lets me pull the rod out of the holder even when it's loaded with a big fish. It takes a great bend when running with tension on the downrigger but still has enough power to handle big kings. My wife is gonna kill me but I'm probably going to get a few more.
Pros: Great Action, great price, Look great for the money
Cons: none
Best Uses: Downrigger fishing

Excellent, gets your diver as far away from your riggers as possible. Or if you run 4 divers these are good rods for separation between high and low divers. Just add a twilli tip if you use wire.
Pros: Durable, great price, Good Action, gets the job done
Cons: None Specified

Have not been able to use these rods yet , but if they perform as well as they look my down rigged are going to be busy!  On a side note  the packaging could be beefed up for rod delivery because the post office looked like they did their best to break them, though they did come out unscathed.

Pros: Look great for the money

About Me:

I purchased six Okuma Classic Pro GLT Trolling Rods so that I could use them for trolling with wire line on Lake Erie.  These rods are stout and the triangular grips make holding the rods easier.  These are compact for storage compared to my other trolling rods and are well suited for either steelhead or walleye.

Pros: Sturdy, just works
Cons: Some rods had plastic on the handles when shipped

I fish for Walleye on Erie, and Trout/Salmon on Ontario. I need a rod that can serve double duty for both, and the Okuma products does so perfectly. In addition to diversity, value is second to none.
Pros: Durable, Good Tip Action, Reputable, Economical, Flexible
Cons: none
Best Uses: Large Fish, trolling

About Me:

this will be used for trolling for lake fishing and possibly on the downrigger. Eyes seem durable and decent flex to the rod. The only thing is that although it has okay flex it could be better. But overall seems like a great rod.
Pros: Lightweight, Durable, Easy To Transport, Accurate Casting
Cons: Too Stiff
Best Uses: Large Fish, Lake Fishing, Downrigger fishing

About Me:

The 8'6" rods are perfect for trolling in-line planer boards for salmon. They have enough backbone to fight big fish and they pull planer boards with ease when using heavy lines like Copper and Leadcore. Plus the line guides have lg diameter holes so the knots will make it through without hanging up. I'm very pleased with these rods for Great Lakes Salmon fishing.
Pros: Durable, LG Guides good backbone
Cons: none
Best Uses: Large Fish, Trolling in-line boards
