G. Loomis Salmon/Steelhead Rods

The “Hot Shot” rods have light to medium tips and magnum butt-sections. They were originally designed to fish steelhead plugs, like the Hot Shot, where the boat actually is positioned at the head of a run, letting the current “pull” the plug down to the fish zone, near the bottom. The boat sweeps back and forth, across the current so the plugs cover the entire width of the river, then slips further down stream, repeating the process. Lure action is monitored by watching the rod tip wiggle as the lure digs for the bottom. When a fish hits the plug, the magnum butt-section actually sets the hook by the force created by the strike, and the boat operator keeps initial tension on the fish until the angler can grab the rod from the holder. The very nature of this design makes it a good casting tool, and a better fish-fighting tool. Many anglers have discovered they are also very effective for a lot of different applications.

Designed specifically for back-trolling plugs or drift-fishing for king salmon, this is also an excellent big river steelhead rod. The fast taper and powerful, magnum butt make it a favorite among silver salmon anglers. It has a long rear cork grip for extra leverage and lots of power.

G. Loomis HSR1023C GL2 Hot Shot Rod 8'6" Mag-Heavy
Price: 275.00

Length: 8'6"
Power: 3
Pieces: 2
A two-piece, fast-action plug and back-bounce rod with plenty of power. Designed for use in the big rivers of Alaska for trophy Chinook salmon, this rod works well in light saltwater conditions, as well. If you're after really big salmon, this is a pretty fair drift rod, with more than enough backbone for shoreline fishing. But it really shines back-trolling large plugs like Kwikfish or Wiggle Warts.

G. Loomis HSR1025C GL2 Hot Shot Rod 8'6" Mag-Heavy
Price: 285.00

Length: 8'6"
Power: 5
Pieces: 2
GLoomis' magnum-power plug rod, designed specifically for Alaska. More than enough backbone to handle the biggest salmon you can find. Use it for either back-trolling, drift-fishing or backbouncing. There's enough power here to fish for ling cod, halibut or other oversized bottom fish as well.
