Rod Set Ups.

Recommended Posts

I have been buying and trading all winter Long. Also been doing a lot of research on power and action. This is what I have and need some advice on what set ups for each tech. I want to really start fishing tournaments, I am going to use this year to practice on specific baits for certain rods and reels.

For rods I have got 8 falcon bucco micro guides. 2) 6'6" MH/ fast

2) 6'10" h / med fast

2) 7' m / mod

2) 7' mh / med fast.

1) cabelas tourney trail m/fast

1) convergence 6'6" mh / ?

Reels are all lews. 4 tourney pros 7:1:1

4 tourney pros 6:4:1

1 bb1 5:1:1

1 bb1 7:1:1

I have been trying to figure out which set for different technics. Also if I co angle on a boat the set up is going to have to be different correct? Thanks for the help.

I don't think there's a right or wrong combination of rods and reels necessarily. One could probably make a good argument for any arrangement if they really wanted to. However, for me, I will usually put the higher gear ratio/ipt reels with my bottom contact rods as I want to pick up line quickly to set the hook. Moving baits will usually get a 6:1. I don't have any 5:1 reels, but those can go with moving baits as well if you want a slower retrieve.

Ok that's a great point. Guess I am looking for help picking the right set for each tech. Like what rod and reel set up for spinnerbaits,senko,weightless worms,jigs,swim baits, crankbaits, square bill and lipless. I have an idea for each one but was hoping for some input to help make the right set ups. I have never had specific rod and reels for a certain tech before. But I know it help me with being more constant with my fishing.

Not trying to be rude, but why would you buy/trade for a bunch of rods and reels if you don't know what technique you are going to use them for? How did you make your choice on rods?

How do you have them setup now?

I know the basics. Heavier lures and bottom baits you want heavier power with fast action. I have not tried any of theses set ups yet. I have the 5:1:1 on the 7' med/mod for crankbaits. I have one set up 6' 6" mh/fast with 6:4:1 for spinnerbait. 6' 10 w / a 7:1:1 for jigs. 7' med/mod w/7:1:1 for top water spooks and Sammy's. 7' mh /med fast for buzz baits. That leaves 3 poles left. Not sure what to use for frog pole do I need 7'6? Maybe I need to do some more trading. Thanks
