Tony Maja Custom Mojo Rod - The Fisherman

Tony Maja Custom Mojo Rod

Trolling is the go-to technique for catching more and bigger striped bass, and Tony Arcabascio has been on the cutting edge of striper trolling innovations for over 50 years. His boat, the Maja, was a fixture on the striper grounds of New Jersey and New York long before he introduced his first products, the patented E-Z Outrodder rod holders and the groundbreaking Tony Maja Bunker Spoons. Those were quickly followed by the Tony Maja Bunker Spoon Rod, quite simply the best spoon rods ever offered.  Today Tony Maja Products (TMP) is the recognized leader in striped bass trolling gear simply because everything offered is of the highest quality and value, and will increase your striper fishing success.

With the introduction of the Magic Maja Mojo trolling lures Tony started another revolution in striped bass trolling by bringing a technique that was once rarely used outside of Chesapeake Bay and blending it into a total trolling system. When used in conjunction with his renowned bunker spoons the pattern covers a wider strike zone while offering more targets for bass to key in on. Trolling Magic Mojos with Maja Bunker Spoons has become the hottest development in striped bass fishing in years!

Now, TMP is proud to announce a product that rounds out your arsenal of trolling gear, a dedicated mojo trolling rod. Mojos come in a variety of weights up to 24 ounces and are trolled singly or in tandem from a single rod. The new Tony Maja Custom Mojo Rod is purpose-designed for the task and constructed using the finest components wrapped to perfectly match TMP Bunker Spoon Rods.

Tony Maja’s Custom Mojo Rod is a one piece, 6-foot, 6-inch beauty built on a specially designed graphite composite blank with the prefect action to handle the weight of mojos while providing the sensitivity to see every strike and enjoy the fight. These jet-black blanks are strong, durable and built to last. They are wrapped with eight perfectly spaced Fuji Alconite guides for years of service with braided lines. Each guide is under-wrapped in yellow to protect the blank and over-wrapped in red.

The fore and butt grips are contoured closed-cell foam for a secure grip in any weather and are set off by a red, yellow and black diamond butt wrap. The gold anodized, heavy duty reel seat and butt cap compliment the aesthetics along with the Tony Maja striped bass decal above the diamond wrap. The finished rods are functional and a beautiful addition to your trolling arsenal. Each one comes with a TMP imprinted cloth bag to protect them when not in use.

The Tony Maja Custom Mojo Rod will be available at a TMP dealer near you in time for spring. To see the full line of TMP products go to
