The W3 Bass Finesse-T T&C 2nd (Texas & Carolina) is an excellent rod for predator fishing with both soft and hard lures. The rod is light and sensitive but fast and powerful enough to set the hook in the hard, bony mouth of any predator! It is perfect for casting soft lures or slowly twitching a Texas or Carolina rig along the bottom. You can use it when pitching small hard lures in shallow water for bass or targeting trout and walleye in deeper areas. W3 Finesse-T T&C 2nd is a great all-round tool for light and medium style predator fishing!
