MicroWave tested on Louisiana Redfish


Chris Norton and Lee Thompson visited the vast saltwater marshes of Delacroix, Louisiana to hunt for redfish with an arsenal of Microwave Line Control System Rods.  The two had three days to fish and had an amazing trip.

Chris and Lee used everything in the tackle box and were able to land dozens of large redfish with the help of the Microwave guides.  Long and accurate casts were essential for the chance to hook up to these monsters.  Chris stated "The distance we were able to achieve with the minimum amount of effort was astonishing!"  Chris continued "We threw everything we had from heavy jigs to light weightless jerkbaits and the MicroWaves made casting all day easy and enjoyable." 



Chris and Lee landed many reds during their time in the marsh and are looking forward to testing the microwaves on even larger prey in the near future.

Congratulations to Chris and Lee on a successful trip and good luck on your future fishing endeavors.
