When it comes to covering water, Bassmaster Opens pro, Brad Leuthner, has a preferred setup when fishing spinnerbaits, such as the Bassman Compact Tandem or Mag Willow spinnerbait. When it comes to the rod, Brad prefers a 7'6" Medium-Heavy Ark Invoker Pro Series casting rod paired with an Ark Gravity 7 casting reel in the 7.1:1 gear ratio spooled with 20lb Sufix Advance Fluorocarbon. With this setup, anglers will have everything they need to cover water and effectively fish a spinnerbait any time of the year.
