Spinning rod for deep cranking?

Recommended Posts

So my gf wants to delve into deep cranking with me, and I’m using SK 6xd and 10xd.  She’s strictly a spinning gear girl, so I need to find a spinning rod capable of throwing those 1 oz and 2 oz lures.  Does such an animal exist that isn’t a saltwater 8+ footer?

Yes. Check the inshore section of a decent salt water shop. I hope you find Popeye forearms sexy though....

Spinning reels usually have to high of an IPT for me to consider for deep cranking.

Yeah, but you downsize the reel and fill 3/4, and it works fine, In the case above, he's throwing shot puts, so casting won't be an issue as with smaller baits. I would probably go with a slow rod, braid and a leader. That's how a lot of inshore work with similar sized lures gets done.

Lol well no, I forgot to add that it needs to be relatively light weight....

I was thinking more of reeling those 10Xs over and over.
