                      " THE LAST BOAT ROD YOU WILL EVER NEED IN FRESHWATER "

   Hello Fellow fishermen' ladies and gentlemen alike, My name is Kenny, and I know if your looking for a custom rod your a dedicated fisherman as I, and whatever species of fish your chasing, that is what I will be chasing as well mentally' when I design and build the custom rod of your dreams.

   My signature rod' the - Monster Cat -  Pro Tour Boat Rod series was designed for the caliber of the fish you see above, It is the rod of my dreams, Designed to out perform and fish better than any commercially produced Catfish Boat rod in it's class. In all honesty, I don't think you'll ever need or want another rod on your boat. That is my promise to you.

 

   I've been fishing for over 50yrs, started out with my father when I was able to hold a cane pole in which I caught my first channel cat from my grandfathers pond. I was hooked as the fish on fishing ever since, advanced to a Zebco 33's and Mitchell Spinning reels before I started school and was casting for bass like my father in no time after that. All my brothers and I done in our free time was Bass fish.

   Forgot all about the catfish until my brother invited me to go cat-fishing on our 18th birthday, after that day I forgot really all about Bass fishing and thought about and fished consistently for Monster Cats after having what would have been a State record Flat-Head Cat-fish in my honest opinion pull free after being on the line for over an hour, I was devastated, but the quest for Monster Cats was born.


   My first rod design was a very nice 8'6" 2pc travel blank for bank fishing catfish, which proved itself handling 30-70lb+ fish in 2008 including the monster above with ease.

   Almost a year afterwards I was already asking and looking into boat rods. Seriously after buying my boat to fish the rivers I soon and very quickly found out' Cat-Fishing from a boat is completely different ball game. From the rods length, power and action, to the reels, line, weights and hooks.

   It was not long I had a Boat rod prototype in the making. Soon I had designed and created an all around Catfish Tournament Boat Rod like no other, my signature rod.

   That handles fish as this swiftly without even the thought of loosing it ;

   No fish is too Big' in freshwater,
I created these rods for the Cat-fisherman, but I have never had a rod in my hands versatile as these. No fish is safe!!!, everything about them is Unique. It's like having a trio of 130lb Stand-up, 100lb Jigging and 80lb Swim-bait rods all wrapped up into one rod blank in different weight class's. So Balanced it's funny. You will never find another Cat-fishing Boat Rod like these.

You'll have to try one out to really feel the difference between a production rod and Custom.

 First thing I did was to get them into the hands of a pro to prove my point and the rest is history. Catfish Pro and Pro Staff member Dean Birch of SC, For the first time this past fall used my Monster Cat Pro Tournament Boat Rods in the Cabelas King Kat SC trail Tournament in Nov 2014 and placed second overall' single handed, That's correct "By himself". Nice job on the Grand Opening of my signature rods huh?.

Quote; Dean Birch says..
I fished with a guy yesterday that had the opportunity to use my Flamekeeper Rods....he like them, yet noticed I still guard them...maybe one day I will get out of that.....at times I am tempted to just use them when I fish alone...but others need to check them out...they are that good. One friend told me he would not use them but frame them...a true workmanship...Thanks for mentioning me on your site. it was a pleasure to use these rods in the Cabelas Classic and to use them on each of my trips. 1/18/15

 WOW!! Once again my friend and Pro-Staff  Pro Dean Birch and Chris Mann has the runner up spot, only to have his 1st day 30.72lb lead cut down the final day and took a loss by 5.18lb came in at 2nd place at Manning, SC. Feb /24/2015.
