Carbon X Man Basses Out

Carbon X Man Basses Out
David Gray, owner of Carbon X Rods, climbed aboard and discovered smallmouth fishing in Lake Country, Minnesota last week. And he bassed out, swimming Berkley Power grubs just off bottom with 1/8-ounce Lunker City Football Heads

David Gray, owner of Carbon X Rods, came to Lake Country, Minnesota last week. And bassed out. Using his sleek, new, 7-foot spinning rods with action-forward design, we swam 1/8-ounce Lunker City Football Heads and Kalin's 5-inch grubs to bust about 3 dozen nice specimens. Slow was the ticket, with water temperatures dipping into the 40°F range — which is why we used 1/8-ounce heads to swim dull, green grubs near bottom in 14 feet of water. More on that, in the next post.
