Redbone Rods: Catching the Cure for Cystic Fibrosis

Designed by charter captains, Redbone Rods were constructed to give saltwater anglers exactly what they look for in a good rod: dependability and durability. Each rod is made of lightweight graphite and features quality parts that work together to create an enjoyable fishing experience. With supreme fishing strength, the Redbone Rod is more than just a saltwater fishing pole; it is a hope for a cure.

When charter captain, Gary Ellis, and his wife Susan found out that their newborn daughter was diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis, it became their life’s mission to help fight the disease. In 1988, Ellis started organizing events such as the Redbone Celebrity Tournament Series. At this tournament, fishermen were on the hunt for redfish and bonefish, hence where their brand name ‘Redbone’ was born. The group raised $16,000 for the cause during their first run. Since then, Redbone has teamed up with Hurricane to raise more than $10 million for Cystic Fibrosis research.


Fishing Rods for a Cause

So, what’s so special about Redbone Rods? Well, despite their attractive appearance and smooth handling, these rods help support a cause. With every rod purchase, Hurricane donates a small percentage of the profits to helping find a cure for Cystic Fibrosis. You don’t need to be a tournament winning fisherman or charter captain to get involved, all you have to do is purchase one of these stunning rods. Live to Fish offers 8 basic types of Redbone Rods ranging from casting to spinning, and everywhere in between. Designed for either inshore or offshore fishing, each of these premium performance rods offer supreme saltwater action. In this entry, we’ll be going over some of the basic details that make each Redbone Rod unique.


Redbone’s Inshore Fishing Rods

All Redbone Inshore Rods are made of a high modulus graphite so they’re super strong, yet still able to bend with ease. This also helps with rod sensitivity, so you can feel every move at the tips of your fingers when fishing with live bait. Generally, inshore fishing rods are meant to be used in shallow waters less than 30 meters deep. Use these rods for fishing in shallow waters such as bays, lakes, and other bodies of water that are close to land.

Inshore Casting RodsRod lengths range from 7’ to 7’6”

Ideal for deep-sea fishing, these rods are better built for hooking large trophy fish such as tuna, grouper, and sharks.
