Three Rods for all your Tackle

Three Rods for all your Tackle

I will show you that 3 rods are all you need to get the job done! The only problem is that you have to tie several different lures on the same rod! Line clips help speed up the lure changing. These 3 rods are perfect for the power fisherman like myself. In the future, I’ll recommend different rods for light tackle or finesse fishing. Bass wishes and catch a bunch!

  2. RLS Outdoors on September 14, 2021 at 11:01 pm

    Does that clip change the action on the lures??? Or is it just the same as say a Palomar knot???

    Do you work at Bass Pro?

    Roland, thanks for that video. My boys and grandsons ask the same questions too. They’re learning though. That’s the beauty of fishing. Thanks again!

    I save your videos to my Roland Martin library and come back to them for instructions as needed from the master of bass fishing of higher education! A follower of 50 years and your still looking great. Thank you for sharing your passion.

    I can only carry one rod with me cause my fishin buddy(ies) are loadin up their rods in my truck as well. Also, I only have 2-pieces or 3-pieces to be able to put them in the cab.

  9. Anonymous Hippopotamus on September 14, 2021 at 11:10 pm

    Now just imagine you want to use the much more common spinning reel. Arrgh.

  12. David Dunbar on September 14, 2021 at 11:14 pm

    Roland is a living fishing legend. Grew up watching him with my dad and now follow his son! Great people who are always pushing great information. Thanks Roland

  13. eric thoresen on September 14, 2021 at 11:15 pm

    Anyone who gives Roland Martin a thumbs down when he gives advice deserves to have their fishing license revoked.

  14. Omar Shablotnik aka Simon on September 14, 2021 at 11:16 pm

    I’m most interested in a product link to those quick change clips you were using

  15. Howard Jr on September 14, 2021 at 11:18 pm

    Hey Roland, we’re all thrilled you enjoy making these videos because we sure enjoy watching them and to learn from the best! Thank you!

  16. Silversoul on September 14, 2021 at 11:18 pm

    Man, Roland is bursting with knowledge. Awesome video.

  17. Dan Williams on September 14, 2021 at 11:19 pm

    So good, thank you Roland!

  18. Florin S on September 14, 2021 at 11:22 pm

    Great analysis, so you need 3 rods for bass ! My problem is that I’m covering from ice fishing to tuna,marlin,fluke, sea bass,porgies,pike,walleye, salmon,kingfish, mackerel, squid,shark, tile fish,cod,pollock…..etc. I think I got it, I just have to multiply by 3,and I’ll have the answer for my wife!:)))))

    Lure clips.

  20. E. Caban Jr on September 14, 2021 at 11:25 pm

    That was a great review! I’ve got about 4 dozen rods for specific applications. This definitely saves precious time when the situation suddenly changes. I find it difficult to concentrate on tying a knot after a big bass has just jumped near me or I see it swirling the water. Having the right rod with the right lure already tied on is a great way of increasing the probability of presenting that lure to that fish before it swims off.

    I have a medium light, medium heavy, heavy rod, and a panfish rod. All under 100 dollars all catch fish.

  23. You Tube on September 14, 2021 at 11:31 pm

    Thanks for this video mr Roland. I went Bass fishing 2 days ago and I have those 3 sets ups although I need to switch the 30Lbs to at least 50Lbs braided on the heavy dury rod.

    My worm set up for senkos is 12Lbs fluorocarbon and I like keeping it like it is.

    It’s amazing how that first rod can be used for all those lures.

    Again thank you so much Mr. Roland.

  24. Kevin der Kinderen on September 14, 2021 at 11:35 pm

    I’m confused. Roland’s referring to "heavy action" and "medium action". Isn’t action slow/moderate/fast? Heavy, medium heavy, medium, light, ultralight refer to power. I like the idea of 3 rods to cross multiple uses but I can’t figure out how to apply Roland’s advice to real life in this case.

    In my environment, in order of usefulness, I’m looking at drop shot, jigs, swim bait, crank, top water and pitching. I would like to create a minimal number of configurations to cross those four areas. I treat frogs as top water because there’s not a lot of grass or pads here but a frog near the bank has been successful without less than 20 lb line.

    I have ultralight rods but only one "big guy". It’s a 2012 St. Croix Tournament TBC71MHF. Stamped on the rod is "Spinner Bait / Jig-N-Worm." I’m just starting to realize that it is not a good rod for everything or I need to work on my technique a whole lot more. Expanding to three rod/reel setup to cover more techniques just sounds appealing to me. I probably should find a forum to bring up these questions but Roland’s video has come closest to the guidance I’m looking for. I’m just concerned about the inconsistence in action vs. power terms.

  25. Gerson Obregon on September 14, 2021 at 11:36 pm

    is 7 foot the basic end all be all? i use a 6.6 rod. should i get the extra 6 inches?

    Thank you for sharing your expertice with everyone.

  29. Daryl Clark on September 14, 2021 at 11:40 pm

    Great Information.

  30. Dave Lester on September 14, 2021 at 11:43 pm

    His reality of my budget on a teacher’s pension is hilarious. 3 rods, then a few more, and finally 2 of each kind. I would have appreciated brand names, etc. Which is conveniently left out. I like these videos but this one was kind of a loser.

  31. Doey Jiaz on September 14, 2021 at 11:44 pm

    Man I’ll be honest, I don’t care if I’m fishing, tying knots, picking my nose or scratching my ass. If I’m alone out on the water, I’m happy.

  32. WeAre138 on September 14, 2021 at 11:44 pm

    You don’t want to retie a lure but you would actually change your line while fishing?

  33. Nate Larson on September 14, 2021 at 11:45 pm

    Takes 20 seconds to tie on a new lure: "I don’t wanna spend 10 min tying on a new lure". I understsnd though, especially for tourney fishermen. The knot tying can be done before you get out on the water.

  34. William Seling on September 14, 2021 at 11:46 pm

    Is that the "Favorite White Bird" casting combo?  (I wanna say its sub $100???).  I’ve heard mixed reviews.  Anyone have any experience with the Favorite White Bird, cast or spinning??

  35. Davy Cornell on September 14, 2021 at 11:46 pm

    1st half: You only need 3 rods. Theres only a little inconvenience of this clip.
    2nd half: This is why I have 10 rods on the boat because look at the pain in the ass it is to have to tie something different every 15 minutes lol. Love you Roland.

  36. Stephen Beth on September 14, 2021 at 11:47 pm

    Thx for all the help

  37. Rodney Rowe on September 14, 2021 at 11:49 pm

    If someone had omly one rod, would 10lb. braid work rather than changing line all the time?

  39. Saul Marinoni on September 14, 2021 at 11:51 pm

    whats this clip hes talking about?

  40. David KC on September 14, 2021 at 11:51 pm

    Definitely don’t use a clip on a chatter bait.

  41. David Russell on September 14, 2021 at 11:51 pm

    So what you’re really saying is get more than 3 rods.

  42. John Kennelly on September 14, 2021 at 11:52 pm

    Roland, As a child I bought your Helicopter Lure deluxe set, mowed lawns and had to go get a money order and mail it in and wait 4 to 6 weeks for delivery…..I didn’t catch a godamned thing with any of them. You owe me 39.99 plus s&h Venmo, cashapp, check be fine.

  43. Duane Theimer on September 14, 2021 at 11:53 pm

    The hp of you outboard is the amount of rods you need.

  44. Orange Pill Outdoors on September 14, 2021 at 11:54 pm

    I have a med and heavy bait caster and a med light spinning rod for ned rigs. I live in kansas we dont have 10lb bass xD I plan on getting a med heavy for spinners and mid weight lures but im in no hurry really.

  45. HeatSeeker on September 14, 2021 at 11:55 pm

    lol….time is important if you are fishing a tournament. Time doesn’t matter when you are spending a relaxing day of fishing.

  46. theodore Dow-man on September 14, 2021 at 11:55 pm

    I think what we all need is some Bill Dance outtakes…

  47. Clayton McNeel on September 14, 2021 at 11:56 pm

    Roland I enjoyed the video and took allot of notes. I have many rods for both baitcasters and spinning reals. I have tried to set up combination to match as many different lures as possible but what I missed in your video was reel ratios. Maybe you have address this in the past?

  48. Jeff Garrett on September 14, 2021 at 11:57 pm

    Thank you sir

  49. Bryan Nelson on September 14, 2021 at 11:58 pm

    Trying to find out what the clip is so I can purchase some?
