Are you looking to get into bass fishing? Or are you already an avid bass angle and looking to upgrade your kit or try out something new? Active Junky has pulled together some of the best bass fishing rods, reels and lures from Cabela’s, all with high ratings from happy customers.
Cabela’s Tournament ZX Bass Casting Rods
The Cabela’s brand Tournament ZX Bass Casting Rod is made with HM64 graphite rod blanks for balance, power, responsiveness and minimal weight. The ergonomic EVA grip makes for a comfortable and secure hold while the rod itself is complimented for sensitivity and versatility, with 32 customers giving this rod five out five in reviews. Offered in seven models with varying length, line weight and application, you can choose one that fits your bass fishing style.
Cabela’s Arachnid Baitcasting Reel
With a T-Wing aperture, Cabela’s Arachnid Baitcasting Reel provides smooth, free-flowing casts – nearly every one of its 21 five-star reviews praised this bass fishing reel for its long casts. The Air Rotation System with 12 bearings is to thank, along with Magforce-Z Cast Control to reduce backlash. Three models weigh in at 7.6 ounces and only vary between gear ratio and line recovery length.
Cabela’s Verano Spinning Reel
With a carbon body for reduced weight that’s evenly distributed for ultimate strength, Cabela’s Verano Spinning Reel offers top performance. A double-anodized-aluminum spool and nine ball bearings make for smooth casting and drag, a favorite attribute for many customers. And a corrosion-resistant Zaion body means this reel can handle an accidental dunk. You can choose from four models with differing specs, including braid and mono capacity, drag and weight.
Gary Yamamoto Original Senko
Cabela’s customers love this soft plastic bait – it’s hard to argue with nearly 200 perfect ratings. Weighted with salt that also adds flavor, the Gary Yamamoto Original Senko offers a slow fall and impressive wiggling movement. It comes in dozens of colors, several length options and can be rigged five different ways.
River2Sea Whopper Plopper 90
The Whopper Plopper 90 from River2Sea is a favorite of anglers and bass alike, with all customer reviews claiming success and bass not leaving this fishing lure alone. A quick lure that creates a buzz-saw-like sound to attract targets in the surrounding area, the Whopper Plopper is ideal for topwater fishing, measures 3.5 inches, weighs 0.5 ounce, and comes in nearly 20 colors.
