Memory Stix Fishing Rods

Memory Stix Performance Fishing Rods

After many years of consulting for companies like Shimano and Lamiglas, Captain Jim has designed his own series of specialized light tackle rods designed for discriminating anglers. Captain Jim decided to call these new creations “Memory Stix”. The Memory Stix line up of inshore and near-shore rods are designed to handle all types and sizes of fish from speckled trout or redfish to larger species like tarpon and cobia.

Top Quality Components

These rods are built with top quality components to promote maximum sensitivity, yet are surprisingly durable for a high-modulus graphite rod series. With the help of master rod builder Derwood Roberts of Adventurous Custom Rods, these rods are ready for purchase and designed to help you go out and catch your next memory. Memory Stix were officially released to the public at many of central Florida’s finer tackle shops, but online sales through adventurous Custom rods is always an option. Please contact Captain Jim Ross directly for more details.

The rods themselves are specifically built for saltwater light tackle fishing, but many bass anglers are finding that these super sensitive rods are valuable for their style of fishing as well. Quite a few of the 7 to 7’3″ Memory Stix rods work well with soft or hard jerk baits, topwater plugs, and shaky head or drop shot applications.

Suitable for Fish from 40-150 Pounds

For anglers casting live shrimp, pilchards, and fingerling mullet, there are two 7’10” inch models that are perfectly designed for properly casting these more delicate live offerings. For anglers chasing bull redfish, snook, big jack crevalle, tarpon, cobia, and Mahi Mahi, there are two 7’7″ models designed to handle line ratings from 12 to 40 pounds and fish pushing into the 150 pound class.

These rods don’t look like anything else on the market and they outperform everything else in their price class. Captain Jim insisted on a rod designed for years of trouble-free fishing. Ergonomic reel seats, tubular graphite handles, and TiCh coated stainless steel guides that are virtually bulletproof and yet weight 30-35% less than competitors “bulky” ceramic guides, are just a few of the features that you’ll find on these top quality fishing rods.

High-Quality at a Great Price

Captain Jim loves to build high-end rods built with purpose. Starting at $199 retail and available in 9 sizes, these light tackle tools will be sure to fit your style of fishing from the flats to freshwater.
