G. Loomis Salmon Plug Fishing Rod SAPR982C rod is designed to back-troll deep-diving lures, like the Hot Shot or Wiggle Wart, behind a boat. It has a relatively light tip that allows the plug to work easily and also lets the angler watch the tip wiggle, confirming that the lure is working properly. The rod is designed to allow the boat to fish the plug, backing the lures down the drift slightly slower than the current, forcing them to dive, wiggling erratically. lures are spaced out at equal distances from the boat, like a picket fence, so the fish have to react to them rather than just moving over to get out of their way. The lure rating is very broad because some anglers use this rod for light duty back-bouncing on small rivers and because it' s designed for trolling, not casting. If you should decide to use it for casting lures or baits, it will handle up to 2-ounces effectively.
G. Loomis Salmon Plug Fishing Rod SAPR983C is a slightly more powerful back-trolling, plug rod for fishing faster, heavier water and larger salmon species. These rods have been discovered by sturgeon anglers to be effective especially in tidewater where the water isn't too deep or swift. It is surprising how large a fish can be handled using this rod. It will handle up to 6-ounces for back-trolling or back-bouncing, but for casting purposes, it will handle about 3-ounces.
