Jelsma Rod Co Bass Rods

All our Bass rods are the culmination of time on water and tons of fish caught. Over the years we've tweaked every rod to be the best in its category. So unlike the other guys we offer plenty of options on every rod to make it truly custom. If you dont find what your looking for submit a Custom Order, as standard all our rods will come equipend with American Tackle guides, seats, cork grip and spiral wrapped. Please allow several weeks as every rod is crafted to order.

APJ Series - All Purpose Jig

The All Purpose series is great for introductory custom rods. It has a slightly slower action and wider range of lure weight with the same great back bone of the PBJ series. Coming in at a more standardized lengths rather than the specialized lengths this series is great for gifts, weekend fishermen or the angler that wants to reduce the number rods on deck. It really almost does it all.

SCB-DCB and SWB Series - Shallow Crank-Deep Crank and Swim Bait

A tried and true classic with all the modern advantages our cranking and swim bait rods are truly a game changer. With Moderate actions and 100% Toray Carbon build they still have the sensitivity. A shock absorbing tip section keeps you hooked up with treble hooked baits to avoid rip outs and length is optimized for casting distance. Swim bait rods have a slightly heavier build to accommodate heavier baits and a faster action to allow longer rods with sweeping hook sets and a ton on line pickup.
