The Big Dawg Fishing Team use St. Croix fishing rods

We generally use light tackle spinning rods for offshore and reef fishing.  These are excellent for deep drops, when fishing for huge Muttons and Groupers and keeps the fight fun!!


We use an assortment of spinning and conventional Reels. The Shimano Saragosa 6000 and 10000 are great for 12 pound spinning and helps stop Big Kings and Cobias. The Shimano Trinidad works nicely when deep fishing over wrecks. Loaded with 20 or 30 pound line, the 7500 Penn Spinning reels are good for shallow wrecks in the Gulf.
