Hello Everyone

I have a St Croix 7 ft bait caster med heavy mod action rod 3/8 -1 oz 10 toi 20 lb test.

Is this rod good for all around types of lures and fishing or what type of fishing lures  would this rod best be suited for, and what reel would you put on it ?

It would be good for crankbaits, you could put a reel with a low gear ratio on it. Can’t say a specific reel without a price range.

200.00 would be the most I would spend. Thanks, how about top water no good or jigs?

Just about any treble hook lure presentation. As for the reel, I'd say something around a 7.1 gear ratio, unless you'll be doing a lot of deeper cranking and I'd stick to a Daiwa or Shimano. You don't need to spend $200 for a quality reel. Both companies offer quality reels under that.

Some people use it for bladed jigs, jerkbaits, spoons, lipless rattletraps, swimbaits, topwater, spinnerbaits, poppers, dropshot, and most lures with treble hooks. The reels I’ve heard great things and are in your price range are the Tatula SV TWS, Curado K, Revo Winch(for deep cranks) and Revo STX.

Thanks all I been looking at the Tatula  and the Curado I like the break adjustment on the tatula looks easier to get to then the curado,

The centrifugal brakes(inside) on the Curado, will be your primary while the outside will just be a finer tune, like for wind...etc.
