The Breakaway Slideaway is available in the online store. You get 2 per pack plus locking rings. Deon Hunter helped by showing us how to rig and use this system of putting large un-castable baits to extreme distance. Rigging the Slideaway
In the Video the rods being used are Breakaway HDX Tournament Butt with fitted low reel seats.
Please also check out this link which is a longer video with bad sound but shows how to prepare bait and use the Slideaway. Using the Slideaway
Mark Martinez has an interesting story to tell about his new Breakaway Omega custom rod.
On his first trip out with his new rod he lands a 34” Striped Bass. Mark said,
“I caught it off the south jetty in Port Aransas around 6:45pm. I had just lost a big jack before the striper so I was a little upset. I tied another lure on the line (X-Rap Rapala) casted it a couple of times and the third cast BAM hook up. I thought it was a Cobia or a big snook when he hit the surface then as he got closer to the rocks i saw the stripes.
It was a great fight on my new Omega Custom. Yes my first fish to break in the new rod
I think it’s going to be a lucky rod.”
Texas Parks and Wildlife had this to say about the rare catch:
Texas Parks and Wildlife began stocking stripers in the 1960s in East Texas, but now stock them in about a dozen lakes. Most likely this one traveled about 160 miles from Canyon Lake, through the Guadalupe River and into San Antonio Bay, which is 60 – 70 miles north of Port Aransas.
Martinez caught the fish about 6.45 pm. after working a shift at OxyChem in Ingleside. He and his brother Jose Martinez were casting Rapala X-Rap lures with a Breakaway rod at Jack Crevasse they had spotted feeding on baitfish.
Thanks for the awesome report Mark and also for the mention. Come and get your Breakaway T shirt as I want it in your next catch.
