Is it a bait casting or spinning rod? If it's a spinning rod then most definitely but most bait casting rods rated medium are a little too stiff for 1/8 to load and cast well unless you are using a bulky plastic. A lot of it depends on the reel too. Some are designed for lighter stuff, but most baitcasting reels aren't going to do well under 1/4 oz

Something like t-rigged1/8 weighted worm will work with Medium Smoke casting rod. Ive thrown 1/8 bitsy minnows with mine and 1/20 TRD ned rigs.

Ok, but is a casting rod and the reel throws weightless plastics but I didn't know if it had enough power for Texas rigs around docks and rip rap

Yea I have it paired with a duckett 320 casting reel and I think it will do good for pop r's and small Texas rigs along with weightless senkos, do u think it would do good with brush piles? 

And also what line would you recommend 

That is a good fish wish I would of had 5 of those in live well today at one of my tournaments

I have a couple M/F smokes use braid and fluorocarbon. Ive used Sunline Sniper Fc in 10-12-16 pound test and like the 16# the most. Havent tried any other brand fc. For braid I use a number of brands Smackdown, power pro super8slick, gamma torque are my most used this year.

With that reel you have the balance of the rod/reel is very good, wouldnt you say, feels good in hand. Very light and balanced makes for a great combination.
