The TRUTH about the Ugly Stik Tiger Rod (Offshore Fishing)

This is Part 2 of my offshore fishing saltwater tackle series. In this video, I discuss my Ugly Stik Tiger Rods. These are my favorite two Offshore fishing rods both for kayak fishing and boat fishing in saltwater. These two rods are cheap and well made.

Tony Bolton says:

Hello all,
I have several questions.. What would you recommend for a beginner? New or Used… Would like to fish for steel-head.. Thanks to all.

Eric Ferguson says:

Nothing beats an Ugly Stik with a Penn real!

Flatheadfletch says:

If that’s the 20-50 it’s perfect. I’ve used them for years. Best catfish rod their is. 20-50 spinning. See my video

David Wolter says:

I use several Ugly Stiks, Elite, GX2 and a Big Water. I want a Tiger but just haven’t pulled the trigger. I have to say though my St Croix Mojo blows them all away, chics dig it. For surf I use a cheap 10′ Daiwa Beef Stick with cut bait and let it soak. It works like a champ or maybe a chimp, not sure but it only cost me about $35 and it catches sea monsters.

Orlos The Druid says:

Am I the only person in the world who washes his rod clean to get the slime off it after a session, and then waxes it? I use a paste carnuba oil based auto wax, wax on, wax off. Not only does my rod look good, and last longer, but the slime and the salt is way easier to wash off it.

Cant wait to see the dumb comments on this, lemme go make popcorn!

Az Kikr says:

I hav uglystik tiger and love it. Everything changed when i seen slow pitch jigging rod. Now i hav that rod from tsunami and cheaper than tiger. It has spiral guides

Mick Bator says:

What is BTB?

peyton tran says:

Does it have a gimbal butt?

Sons of Abraham RT says:

I saw this rod today at Bass pro but it was 80$. It seems like a tough rod yet still light and sensitive in the hand.

Bryan Thornton says:

My Tiger rods have never let me down…

Marijuana870 says:

Love these rod for stergeon and stripers. Tiger elite + shimano sp20000sw spheros is my to go combo.

Fishing lover says:

I have the exact same spinner real

Jelsma Outdoors says:

how have the guides held up to braid? and what braid have you used with it?

Sid_1026 says:

Do you still recommend using the penn spinfisher 550ss or is it just better getting a newer reel for surf fishing ?

Saulo V says:

Those end of the year specials are on the Ugly Stik page or at retailers?

Drundel says:

What store has them on sale and what time of the year?

Huston Witt says:

I use this rod for bottoms fish and lingcod. Also i troll with them for salmon. They are the best, caught a 40 lbs chinook with it

Redbeard Fishing says:

My first rods ever were ugly stiks for catfishing the Mississippi River!

john duckworth says:

Thanks Jack for the advice. you do awesome videos bud and being an ex-pensacolian I do love seeing my old stompin-grounds. Peace Brother.

Jonathan-Emily Powell says:

Mono Leader is what you need.

SoUTh Outdoors says:

Excellent video!

somement says:

Love your videos! What is the line rating on your tiger lite rod?

Julian Serrano says:

I’m so fucking mad why do you even fish your so fucking mean I hope u die and wat did the fish do to u don’t eat animals I’m clicking off of the vid and continuing to eat my steak and chicken nuggets and chicken wings

David Fray says:

any suggestion getting rush off rods like that green stuff on the eye lids? Darn winter hasnt ended yelt. Wish last year i didnt snap a jigging world rod on a grouper who toke me into a hole.

Gordon Murray says:

You should look at the Penn Mariner II’s, they are only 6′, stainless steel guides, built very good and only cost $40

Outdoors Guy says:

The jigging rod, what’s your input on it matched with a 6000 penn battle the first model not the new version with 50lb? Thinking of putting 40lb braid on instead.
