One of our most versatile warmwater light casting rods, the ISR 662 has a fast taper for a more positive hook set and greater casting distance. The length provides better line and lure control, especially in deep water, where slack line may cost you a fish. It is a good choice for fishing minnow baits like the Long-A and Rapala, and the preferred rod for split-shotting worms and grubs. For walleye and bass, this is a good light spinnerbait and crankbait rod. It doubles nicely for a lot of light saltwater uses, too, including redfish, specks, small snapper and even permit, with more than enough power to handle the occasional lunker.
This is an extremely fast-action spinning rod designed to fish light-duty spinner rigs and bottom bouncers like the Lindy rig, especially where clear water demands the use of light line. It is not an ultralight: the tip’s light enough to cast small jigs and jig/leech combos, but it has a powerful butt section. That means excellent lure, line and fighting control whether you’re back-trolling or drifting. And because of its high-modulus sensitivity, this rod is a definite advantage when the bite gets super soft.
