Fishing Rods Under $100

This summer I wanted to buy a better rod for fishing shaky head worms. Being a fisherman on a budget, I wanted to keep it under $100. After weeks of looking at rods and reading reviews online, I decided to buy the Wright & McGill Skeet Reese Tessera S-Curve shaky head/senko rod.

I couldn't be happier with this rod. The sensitivity is great and the rod has a lot of backbone, helping to get a good hook set and land more fish. I can feel strikes with this rod that I'm sure I was missing before. Also, I love the versatility of this rod. Besides fishing shaky heads, I also use it for wacky rigs and Texas rigged soft plastics. I've even used it for crappie and bluegill when I ran off and left my ultralight rod at home.

Great performance aside, it has an awesome look to it too. The yellow and black is different, but in my opinion it looks great. After almost a whole season of use at ponds and in the kayak, there are no chips dings or scratches and all of the guides are in good shape. Best of all, the price tag was under $100.

Check out all of Wright & McGill's rods, I think you will be very pleased. Next up for me is the 7' Skeet Reese crankbait rod.

I am a avid fisherman and devoted husband and father. I grew up fishing in Kentucky mainly farm ponds and small creeks, and the occasional trip with my uncle who was a tournament angler. After a five year hiatus in the Air Force I moved back to Kentucky, got married and renewed my love of fishing. Living close to Green River my wife and I borrowed a buddy's canoe and went for a float. We were instantly hooked. We soon bought our own canoe and since have switched to kayaks.

    • Not really...I would have thrown that kayak away out of frustration before the brace ever had a chance to break. I still say upgrade!
