Are these lure types in the right spot?

Recommended Posts

Hi I just bought 4 combos so far and made up a list of rod, reel and line I bought for all the setup techniques. Would you say all of the lure types in the correct spot or would I need to switch some around? I also would like to get a heavy rod for frogs, swimbaits and such later. I have a spinning setup for Finesse techniques but haven't added it yet.

I don't find fishing single hook baits on moderate or moderate fast rods that enjoyable, I like a little faster action. I would move all the baits from the last setup to the MH F setup.   I would then move some of the deeper diving crankbaits and lipless to the MH MF setup.   Just what works for me.

Would no use less than 50lb braid on a baitcaster. Ur asking for dig in. Would switch ur flouro to seaguar.gear ratios look good. Would switch to Lew's reels but that's just my opinion.

Lighter line digging in doesn’t happen to everybody. I only use 20lb braid on my bait casters, and it never happens to me.

Looks good, but as @dodgeguy said, I would opt for 60 pound braid over 30.

I also don't get line dig in with braid and use 20 and 30 pound. 

You may also not like deep diving cranks on a Med/Moderate.

Looks pretty well though and solid to me.  I'd throw the popper (depending on what you mean by medium) on the moderate rod.  I find it much easier to work a popper with a rod that has a whippy tip.  Too fast a' tip can get tiring and feels like more work than it should to me.  Totally preference though.

 

Also, to me moderate fast is perfect for single hook moving baits.  Just enough power to sweep set the hook, and plenty of tip to cast accurately and keep a fish pinned.

Thanks everyone for your input. I have been using 30lb braid on different baitcasters in the past and never had a digging issue. I also have a mono backing on it as well. So I'm not that worried about it.

 

dodgeguy nothing against Lews but I love my Daiwa reels and I have used Seagur Fluorocarbon before and I don't really care for it.

 

LionHeart what I mean by Medium Poppers is like the Rebel pop r and medium as in like the size of a 90 whopper plopper

Looks like you've got it pretty much exactly how I would use those setups! I agree with the above about using bigger braid though.  I've never thought baitcasters handled light braid as well. Rarely see the pros using light braid on a casting reel either. If it works for you tho that's all that matters!

I go down to 6 and have never seen dig in.

Same here, I learned to use a baitcaster with 20 pound braid with no issues. Currently I use 30 pound the most.

My old Ambassdeur was loaded with nothing but 20#PP, the replacement for it - the President - will also be loaded with 20#PP. I never had an issue casting with the 20#, I don't believe I'll have an issue once I've dialed the President in.
