This is a fun subject. I usually bring three rods on my trips as a shorebound angler:

A: MH casting - Shimano Crucial - Jigs, Larger Trigs and baits

B: M casting - Lamiglas Competitor - All arounder from cranks to spinnerbaits to senkos and topwater. This rod can really do a lot.

C: ML spinning - Lamiglas Certified Pro - Drop Shot, Finesse, Near Ultralight.

For my area this pretty much covers the gamut for me.

For the lakes I fish, this setup would be ideal.

7' heavy/x-fast for jigs, c-rigs, frogs and maybe bigger spinnerbaits

7' medium/fast for t-rigs, smaller jigs, and all moving baits

6' mh/fast spinning rod for throwing unweighted plastics around docks

KVD's Basic 3:

1. Start with a 6-foot, 10-inch, medium-heavy action baitcaster. That rod will handle most spinnerbaits, crankbaits, lipless crankbaits, jerkbaits and topwater plugs.

2. He also recommends we carry a 7-foot, medium action spinning rod with a high speed reel. That'll work for most finesse applications such as drop shotting, shaky heads and weightless worms.

3. A 7-foot, 2-inch heavy casting rod will round out the arsenal. It'll manage heavy cover applications such as flipping or pitching, and it work frogs effectively.

I don't see R. Clunn chiming in, he claims all his rods are the same. When i first saw him say that on t.v., i'm thinking holy crap! Then listened to his reasoning- (same feel, no matter the bait, same reel-so he doesn't have to remember ratios) holy crap again! I love ya Rick, but you may be losing it.  :(  It's not that hard to remember which rod i use for cranks and which one i use for dropshot, etc. I'm calling him out!

I had to chime in for those of us with "short rods"
