My personal preference is a 7 foot heavy action rod and a reel that has a flipping switch on it. I have a Shimano but I use 50lb Spiderwire Braid simply because it will bend a hook before it breaks and its good when heavy flipping around brush and hard grass. This time of year I throw it from anywhere from 3-25 feet depending on water temp and air temp. The way Florida changes in weather so much you have to just search around sometimes. Flipping deep docks works well too. Hope this helps.

I use a Curado 200 E7 on 6-1/2' MH w/ fast action. I tried braid and didn't like it because it kept getting roughed up when I would fish around rocks, and timber. I switched over to fluoro.

I like a MH or H,depends on the weight of the jig, 7' or longer, with a 7:1 reel. For football jigs I like 14lb fluoro. I'll go higher depending on the cover. Pitching and flipping heavy cover I'll go with braid at least 50lb.

TW has Cumara 7'7" Hvy Fast for $100 they label it a "punch rod" would that be too powerful for you dont know Cumara rod strength.

No such thing as 'too powerful'... Hehe... :thumbsup:

That Cumara 7'7" is a sweet jigging option. I'd slap my Curado 201 DHSV with some Power Pro braid on it and start yanking toads out of mud puddles with it!

I'm using a Mojo Swim Bait rod now with the DHSV, and sometimes a throw jigs with it. Works great, especially if you get bit. Hookset is a no-brainer with that rod - I.e. you are going to get a great set every time (So much leverage and rod strength). That Cumara should be even better than the Mojo - I.e. great for flipping/pitching as well.

Start with a 7 to 7-3 heavy fast action rod. Get the best quality you can afford to transmit what the bait is doing and to feel bites. They will be mushy or soft. Add a quality 6.4 or 7.1 to 1 reel and line is open to fit your cover and structure type. Pick up some black and blue 3/8 to 1/2 football heads to start and flippin style heads of you will fish trees and brush. Look for rock and wood near points with steeper contours and deep water close by. Fish the bait slowly as the water temps should be cold. If it feels funny or mushy, set the hook. Hook sets are free. BE PATIENT. The time you commit to learning a jig will pay huge dividends in the future.

I use a Denali Rosewood 7' MH Worm/Jig Rod with a Revo Premier and 15# Trilene Flouro. for most of my jig fishing on Smith Mt. If I'm using a 3/4 oz. jig., I'll step up to a Heavy action in the same rod or the 7'2" Denali Terry Bolton rod. The thing about the MH Rosewood, is that it is an extremely versatile rod. I can use it for jig fishing, texas rig, wacky rig senko, etc. Also use it for pitching and C. Riggin. When you can buy a good rod and use it for multiple uses, it's very cost effective.
