At a Glance: Offshore Rods
Offshore rods are engineered to troll heavier line, bait and lures off a moving boat. Offshore rods are shorter and stiffer than casting/spinning rods, allowing them to be great for big game fishing in open saltwater. The size and strength also make the offshore rods ideal for short-distance or drop casting.
The most popular brands of offshore rods at FishUSA are Okuma, Penn, Shakespeare and St. Croix.
