There nothing quite like throwing poppers and stick baits at massive GT’s. There is something unique about the fight and about the way a GT attacks a popper that makes it one of the most exciting fishing styles on the water. The Okuma Azores Heavy Spin and Popper/Stickbait rods are a brilliant weapon for getting deep into battle with these freight trains of fish. You will get all the power and back up you need to lay in hard to this most belligerent of fish who requires some serious stick to even take notice of you.
Built for big fish and for casting, you can use your Azores heavy spin model from your boat or from the most picturesque coastal headland you can find. Of course, Tuna fans will be as impressed as the GT hunters. If you chase Kingies from the rocks, we can’t think of a better rod for spinning up a war with this enormous missile fish. You can see the theme here. If you like to spin for our toughest, hardest fighting species, you really need an Okuma Azores Heavy Spin rod model.
