Dobyns Rods is happy to announce the new Hyperlite Series with Josh Jones. Josh and Gary are great friends and it didn’t take long when they were fishing together for Josh to convince Gary that this is something that is very much needed with the new popularity of the livescope. These longer rods let you put the bait right in front of the fish’s face as you see it on the livescope. You are no longer fishing for a school of fish but for a single fish in that school. Josh has proven to be a master with the livescope, winning numerous crappie events including the American Crappie Trail Championship in 2020. In 2020 through the start of 2022, Josh has caught 5 fish turned into the Texas ShareLunker program weighing 15.40lb, 15.10lb, 14.79lb, 14.13lb and 13.20lb!
Josh wanted a lighter, more balanced rod for this live scope technique. Most of the rods on the market are heavy and very tiring to hold all day long. The Hyperlite Series really addresses this problem making it a lighter, more sensitive and balanced rod. These will be available in the most popular lengths of 10, 11, 12 and 14 feet. These are all 2 piece casting rods but many of the crappie pros will also put small spinning reels on them.
