Techniques: This is one of the most versatile rods we offer for fishing in and around vegetation or wood. This rod is designed specifically for fishing Lake Okeechobee and lakes with lots of vegetation. Whether you are casting a Skinny Dipper, a Big EZ, swimming a toad, walking a frog or flipping or pitching, this rod does it all. This rod is the perfect for pitching big jigs that weigh 3/4oz-1oz. This rod is also great for throwing a hollow body frogs over matted vegetation on Lake Guntersville and other places that you need to heavy duty rod to get them out of the slop.

I'm so impressed by this rod, it so well balanced, sensitive and has the backbone to muscle any large fish out of the heaviest cover. I would highly recommend this Rod it's so good I had to get a second
I used to be a g loomis man never again there is no rod on the market that can beat a Fitzgearld Rod if you can prove call me and I will argue with you on it I've used a lot off rods in my career as a guide and Fitzgearld rods are where it's at
Bought this rod for the heavy action. I love to fish with shiners and this rod works great. Landed a 10 lbs 6 oz bass on it, on my first outing. Rod worked great, just the right balance of backbone and flex. Great rod !
This rod is awesome. Strong & very sensitive...
Flip, pitch, or Cast, this rod does it all! Has a great tip and a strong back bone. I fish okeechobee almost everyday and so far this stick has amazed me with the durability and strength it has. Pulled a couple 5-7lbs largemouth out of the nastiest cover and pencil reeds with ease! Go getcha one (or two) now :)
I currently own 14 Fitzgerald rods and just added the Okeechobee rod to my arsenal and man am i impressed. This rod is a true workhorse , i am using it to pitch and flip 1/2 - 3/4 oz big craws and creature baits and it has the perfect blend of power ,sensitivity and balance. Its paired with a Revo STX and Sunline 60# braid , this combination can handle just about anything. If you have not tried a Fitzgerald Rod do yourself a favor and get one you will not be disappointed.
