In the warmer waters of the Gulf Coast, about every fish that swims is pound-for-pound more powerful, and simply just meaner, than those that reside in cooler water environments found in the rest of the United States. Standard rod designs may be outstanding in many regions, only to be left in a pile of rubble by an angry redfish or marauding jack. Okuma Shadow Stalker Gulf Coast rods deliver the action and sensitivity required in the fishery, along with OC-9 carbon reinforcement for amazing strength. Spinning rods dominate the selection. For more options in casting rods, see the primary Shadow Staler lineup.
