Catfish Rod | WST Tournament Series Bumping Rod:
We have developed what we would call the perfect catfish bumping rod. Bumping down rivers and reservoirs has become one of the most successful tactics when targeting trophy blues and channel catfish these days.
Though bumping has been around for awhile it’s still a fairly new concept to a lot of catfish anglers but there’s no need to worry as Whisker Seeker Tackle has your back! As with all our products, you are buying directly from the manufacturer and why we can continue to bring our customers high-quality catfish products, at a fair price, that flat out works and is backed by a killer warranty.
We have spent years developing our IM8 Toray carbon blank with a touch of s-glass in just the right places to ensure our customers are equipped with the most sensitive, lightest but yet strongest bumping rod available on the market.
So whether you are bumping for trophy blues or channels during your next tournament or weekend outing rest assured that you are using the most sophisticated catfish bumping rod on the market at a price point that can't be beaten. We’re confident that you will agree and look forward to your reviews and pictures.
