Calstar Grafighter Rail Rods

Calstar Grafighter Rail Rods

Calstar Grafighter Rail Rods - “Rail” rods were developed on the Long Range sport boats fishing out of San Diego, CA targeting large Yellowfin tuna. These boats are in the 100’ range and carry groups of fishermen to destinations off the Mexican coast known to be the home of giant Yellowfin Tuna. These fish are caught while standing and require special gear designed to allow the angler to put maximum pressure on the fish. Rail rods were specifically developed to use the rocking motion of the boat to aid in landing these fish. The rod is laid on the rail of the boat just above the reel, when the boat rocks away from the fish the rod lifts the fish, when the boat rocks back toward the fish, pressure is reduced allowing line to be retrieved onto the reel. Rail rods are 6 ½ to 7’ in length, have a reinforced lower section, and are built with a parabolic action to absorb shock, while maintaining lifting power. For most applications we recommend a 50 size reel, filled with 130# braided spectra line and a short length of either fluorocarbon or monofilament leader.
