CharkBait's Seeker Sticks: CharkBait! is very pleased to be
able to offer the full selection of great rods from Seeker, one of the West Coast's premier
producers of high quality fishing rods, gaffs and rod blanks. Seeker saltwater rods
have earned top recommendations from the long range fleet. Knowledgeable
experts, like Frank LoPreste (owner of the Royal Polaris and other top rated San Diego
based sportfishers) swear by Seeker rods, not at them. They have the right
actions, attention to detail, and are priced aggressively offering the discriminating
angler a true value. Please click on the image of the series of rods you're
interested in, and you'll be taken to the dedicated page for more information and pricing.
In 2014 Seeker's owners (who
had nothing to do in the fishing business - they were simply the $ backers of
firm) decided to sell the company. The firm was sold to a client of ours, a
Southern Californian with strong fishing ties. The new owner looked over the
entire operation, equipment, location, product lines and came to the decision
that they would move the factory, upgrade their capability with new technology
and make some changes to their product line. The upgrades in production will
be great to see, and open new doors for Seeker's cutting edge capability and
future growth. These are positive changes which reflect "new blood" in the
decision making process. However, there will be some changes which may present
some obstacles for some of us. With their move, which is anticipated to come
by June 2014, we'll have a more difficult time making runs to the factory,
we'll depend upon drop offs and shipments. Still, their new location won't be
that far away, we've just been spoiled by being so darn close to both Seeker
In terms of product changes,
well here we do see some challenges and also need to get word out to clients
of future changes in the product line which may impact their existing arsenal
of rods. Here are some of the planned changes which will be coming:
1. Super Seeker Series - in the
past the guide wraps were pretty sophisticated, up to 17 different thread
colors per guide. This will be simplified on new production. Guide Selection -
Seeker will probably move away from their use of the Titanium Guides - they're
darn expensive and in order to hold costs down Seeker will go to Fuji guides
for the future. No negative here, the Titanium guides were excellent as are
the Fuji guides which will be used.
2. Hercules - The guides will
be changed from Titanium to SS Fuji guides. There is also discussion to
change the blank color... I don't necessarily like this idea, feel these are
distinctive as they were designed, and there are some folks who look to round
out their rod selection/arsenal with the same cosmetics as what they currently
own. For those trying to round out their rod selection with the same
cosmetics, better move sooner than later. Our input wasn't part of the decision process...

Seeker's NEWEST! WahooDad's Rail Rods
Seeker WahooDad Rail
Rods New PRO Series
- LIMITED PRODUCTION
- We have a few of these remaining in
inventory, once gone...get yours while you can.
Rail Rod concept was invented by Seeker,
and no one more than David Choate,
WahooDad (as he's known on the boards)
was more influential in it's
development, and instrumental in proving
it's application worth. This concept
revolutionized long range fishing, it's
use and progress than the well known
WahooDad. It was only fitting that the
folks at Seeker listened again and took
his feedback to heart in designing a
series of rods named in his honor. These
rods have a couple of new wrinkles to
them, they are a bit longer at 7'3"
length and they do not come with a
gimbal, they're rail rods damn-it! They
have an extended foregrip like our
custom version 2x4's and make use of a
rail pad so they won't get beaten up
when used as intended. The rods feature
ALPS reel seats, too. They're also
pretty darn good to look at, made in a
rich blue color, and with blanks from
the Super Seeker Series - their best. Of
course the guides are made from
Titanium...excellence all the way.
There are four rods in the series, 1x3,
2x4, a new 3X and 4X as well - these
last two are based upon the 6463 series
rods. These are a bit more forgiving
than the 3x5 cow rod and more parabolic
in bend than the 2x4. I encourage folks
to drop by our shops and give these a
pull, they are all super. For those
fishing almost exclusively braid, I do
think the X version rods will hold a lot
of interest given their bend. But, make
no mistake, these are all best in class
products - with no doubt, with no
you'd like another view of these rods,

link and move towards the front of the
shop and you can see a few on the rack.
Looking for both top performance AND
stunning cosmetics? Trying to get your gal to spend more time on the water
fishing? Style meets performance in uncompromising fashion with this new
series of rods from Seeker.
It is expected that the new Inshore
Pro series rods will replace the Inshore Blue Lightning Series rods over
time. No doubt the design is better and reflects current state of the art in
terms of design for inshore fishing styles.

LIFETIME WARRANTY POLICY
The Seeker Rod
Company guarantees its rods and blanks to be free of manufacturing and
workmanship defects. If a rod or blank is found to have a manufacturing
or workmanship defect, that rod or blank will be replaced free of charge.
Rods owners will need to have proof of purchase,
and all repairs or replacements must be made directly by Seeker. Shipping
is at the expense of the rod owner. In the past we were able to handle
this sort of thing at our shops, now Seeker staff must be the ones doing
the inspecting and processing warranty claims. For clients purchasing rods
from us who may have lost their receipt, we may be able to assist with
that issue provided we do not change our software. It's no doubt best to
save the proof of purchase (invoice) yourself in the event we do change
software here at CharkBait over time. That's something we tend to do every
three years or so...
inspection, should Seeker find the rod or blank failed for reasons other than
material or workmanship, there will be a replacement and shipping charge.

lot of West Coast fishermen use deckhand style
rods, rods with a corktape grip wrap instead of
making use of a more typical reel seat with a
hypolon or cork handle. The corktape deckhand
rods are preferred by long-cast guys - jig
fishermen, and those desiring a longer rod and
longer casts. Additionally, the deckhand rods
allow the fisherman to mount the reel using a
rod clamp in a more custom, more comfortable and
balanced position, again aiding in longer casts.
One drawback of this type of handle/grip is that
the reel clamp tends to dig into the cork over
time. Applying that clamp's pressure over a
larger area reduces the grind on the cork and
allows for a more secure mount. The Cork Puppy
solves the mounting problem quite well. They fit
the majority of rods, and reels made. If your
intent is to mount a reel (that has a rod clamp)
to a deckhand rod, this product just might be a
necessity. There are three sizes, measured by
the rod's diameter in the area you intend to
mount the reel. It's made of machined 6061-T6
aluminum with type II anodizing.
