posted in: Ocean and Bays, Reports | 0

Since their debut last season, Cousins Tackle CPX Saltwater Rods have taking Northern California by storm. Designed for the West Coast Angler by master rod builder Wade Cunningham, each CPX rod is performance tuned using specifically engineered moderate action blanks created to fish in concert with today’s high tech non stretch super braids. Whether you are targeting salmon off the Marin Coastline or white seabass in the waters of Southern California, there is a CPX built for the way you fish.
Constructed with high performance composite blanks, Fuji Aluminum Oxide Guides and Graphite Reel Seats hand wrapped cork tape, each CPX rod is handmade in the USA and finished with three coats of UV Resistant slow cure finish and carries a 3-year warranty with Cousins Tackle Factory Service Plan.
Cousins Tackle Factory Rep, Tony Andreini, checked in to lend his insight into a few of the most popular models in the Nor Cal market.
CPX 799 – 7’9” Med & Hvy Bait – “This is the perfect all around rod for Nor Cal saltwater anglers. It is a great sturgeon rod. In addition, it is well suited for live bait, rock fishing and salmon trolling.”
CPX 804 – 8′ Light Bait – “The 804 excels as a live bait rod for stripers and halibut. If you are fishing shallow water locations like the Berkeley Flats or the Alameda Rockwall with 4 to 8 ounces of weight, this is the rod for you. Don’t overlook this rod for fly lining live anchovies either.”
CPX 806 – 8′ Light Bait – “This is a spectacular salmon trolling rod. Private boaters who troll the flats for halibut also really like this rod. It will troll anything from 8 ounce all the way up to 2.5lbs.”
CPX 809F – 8′ Med & Hvy Bait – “The 809F is an ideal all around rockfish and lingcod rod. It’s great for 6 to 8 ounces swimbaits and for jigging irons. If you like to trap rig, this rod will handle that too.”
