Spinning or baitcasting with what lure??

Recommended Posts

What kind of rod/reel setups do you all use for different lures??  Such as T-rig, C-rig, crankbait, spinnerbait, buzzbait, jig.  Many of these can be casted on either a spinning rod or a casting rod and I just wondered if you prefer one to the other for either comfort of using it, ease of casting it, presentation of the bait, or any other advantage that it might give over the other one.  

Until yesterday I've always used a T-rig and a buzzbait on a casting rod but I was forced to go with a spinning rod while on the water due to an old reel that was not performing right anymore, and while doing so I found I might like it better than the caster.  Makes me wonder what other lures I might like better on a different rod/reel type.

I fish with both and don 't have a particular preference about lure/technique for each, the only time when I specifically select a spinning rod is when I fish with a buzzbait, why ? because my Stradic is faster than any baitcaster I own and that helps me keep the bait on the surface without having to reel in like crazy, other than that I fish indistinctively with one or the other.

For me anything i can cast just as good with a baitcaster as spinning.  IM choosing the caster.  Its just a preference i think i get more feel of what my bait is doing and on my stx i can palm it and have my forefinger right under the line for more sensitivity.  I just prefer a bc over spinning reel.
