We need weights and sizes.  Are we talking a hudd 6" or a mag.  Size matters a lot here when advising you what you need.

5 inch Rising Son.  Not really big, but bigger than what I have used.

3:16 doesn't make a 5" Rising Sun; 6.75" weighs 2 1/2 oz about the same as a 6" Hudd for comparison.

Swimbait rod rated 1-5 oz, 17-25 lb mono/Copoly line, reel with big enough spool to hold 150 yards of line.

I see said the blind man!

Can't imagine the small 5" would weigh more then 1 1/2 oz, heavy crank bait rod would work.

Trying not to buy a new rod.  I have a 7'3" MH Lamiglass that is fishes big.  Seems overkill on 3/4 oz jig.  Also have a M Diawa.  Gonna go experiment  off the bank.  I have 25 lb Maxima Cameleon and 20 lb Trilene XT.  Muddy water.  Do you think the Maxima will hinder the action?

5" WRS weighs 1.25 oz. I would think any jig or flipping rod would be capable of throwing it. Line I would either go 50lb braid to leader or 15-20lb mono/fluoro. I would think your lamiglass should be able to handle it.

25 lb Max is a high memory line, if you can cast it ok it would work, the 20 XT would be good.

Is the 1 1/4 oz wt with a hook? It's a small  Swimbait, try both rods use what feels and cast best for you.
