Chasing bass on plastics is a year round option. The type of plastic, size and design of jig head all change with the change of season, one thing that remains consistent is the style of rod.
I like fast a taper rod, the light tip senses the bites without deterring the fish. Once a fish has the plastic the fast taper rod will load quickly and give you a solid base to drive the large single hook home.
My rod of choice is the Samurai reaction 201 I find the 7ft length ideal for plastics fishing whilst the very fast taper is made easy to control with the comfortable foam grips.
