Premier Casting

St. Croix Premier Casting rods

Stance: Being my first pole I don't have much for comparison. This year was my first year targeting musky, after losing fish on bass rod I knew I needed this rod. So far no complaints. Really helped me maneuver a 40 in fish , allowing me to net it with no ...

Premier Spinning

St. Croix Premier Spinning rods

MED: I already had a St Croix Premier spinning rod and a Legend casting rod & knew my wife needed a decent, proven rod for feisty Northern Michigan smallmouths that are shaped like footballs. So I bought her a Premier 7 foot medium/light x fast, one piece ...

fished the first 25 years of my life then came family & work - back to fishing at 60 (and hope to gain another 25 years of fishing) - Steelhead fished an older 11.5' St Croix last winter & fell in love again casting floats all day @ 25 degrees & effortlessly landing a feisty 11 lb x 31" Steelhead - all my old rods were high dollar back 35 years ago and are still better than many on the market today (especially my Lew's Japanese Speed Sticks & a G. Loomis & old Brownings & older Diawa) BUT in upgrading to a light panfish/trout/smallmouth rod I handled many & bought a St Croix Premier light/fast 5.5' and I am ruined. Have hooked (by feel) nearly every thing that chose to bite it and the play/landing has been perfect - makes it seem too easy - just ordered a 9.5' Legend Elite Steelhead & Salmon & can hardly wait to rig it with a 30 year old classic ABU round reel I have and get to the steelhead rivers to "feel-the-bite" - plan to do a little trolling with than rig too - should help get the bait out away from the boat

I bought one of your mojo bass rods 1 yr ago! Today the end eyelet fell out of the guide ! Now I know just how bad these poles have gotten ! They claim American made but this pole was made in MEXICO: JUNK ! Their warranty is just as bad ! I would not recommend buying another St Croix pole !
