In my opinion, you might have a hard time finding a single rod for both hollow bodies and rage toads. The frog rod should be heavier, where the toad rod should allow the fish to take the bait...more like a spinnerbait or buzzbait rod. That being said, I have both a Savvy 735 and a Powell 735 for hol...

I think you might have missed what I was asking. I was actually looking for current there. It would help one find out where the bass are relating (along with the structure/cover I mentioned!) Basicly I was trying to see if the place was like a big pond or if it had some features.
