Overhead rods are great game rods for deep sea fishing, and Anaconda partners with premium brands such as Penn, Daiwa, Shimano, and Ugly Stik to ensure you have exactly the right overhead fishing rod and overhead fishing reel combo for a successful outing. If you are in the hunt for a trophy or record fish then an overhead fishing rod is the right choice for you, and you have an excellent choice of branded overhead fishing rods here at Anaconda.

Overhead Fishing Rods FAQs

When should I use an overhead rod?

Overhead rods are designed with power and strength in mind to pull those bigger fish up from the depths but still be sensitive enough to feel the lightest of bites. Overhead rods are often used when fishing from boats and are designed with the reel on top of the rod with the guides placed fairly close together so as to not let the line touch the rod blank. There are a range of sizes from five feet right up to eight feet in length and depending on the depth of water and fish species being targeted the taper of the rod will vary either slow, medium or fast.

What target species can I go after with overhead rods?

Overhead fishing rods are specifically designed for getting the better of those serious fish. They are built to virtually indestructible standards and incorporate the most robust components and hardware. The oversize grips and powerful butt sections also provide fish stopping leverage when you need it most. Overhead fishing rods are designed to fight hard and withstand serious battles with species such as marlin, tuna and sailfish.
