LookING for a nice striper rod for boat fishing. Picked up a penn slammer 560l live liner reel so need a rod to match to it. Never striper fished before this year but after catching a 39" 24.5lb fish I am hooked!

So any suggestions for a rod that would work well with this reel would be great! Mostly boat fishing with live herring in the hudson near albany. Occasionally the Cape boat fishing as well.

Price range is under 100

Thanks!

I do some striper fishing and personally I don't think you need a really sensitive rod like for bass I would go with an ugly stick striper rod.

I'm having a real problem with your picture :) 

If it is in your gallery, you have the option to change
it's orientation from upside down to rightside up.

I agree with the striper Ugly Stick. You need something with a softer tip to lob livebait and not pull hooks on big, hard pulling fish, but plenty of backbone to handle said big, hard pulling fish. Sensitivity isn't really an issue with detecting a striper bite.

I just picked up the 7'6 Ugly Stik Striper rod. It is a blast to catch fish when you have to work to bring them in instead of just winching them in.

another vote for the ugly stik striper rod. admitted, i dont have one..yet, but ive been looking at them lately for my striper fishing on smith mountain lake. the guys down there who fish livebait(shad/alewives) on smith mountain lake swear by the medium-light ugly stik striper rods. as another comparison, they say the closest thing to them would be the eagle claw rods...
