Rods

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I have a G-Loomis Casting Rod 6'6" Medium Heavy Fast Action rod. I want a rod for each type of lure I am going to use. What can I use this rod for? What would it be the best suited for and what kind of line. Right now I have 20# power pro line and was thinking about using this setup for my top water lures.

Also, I am not sure what rods/casting or spinning to go with for my senkos, crank baits and jigs. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.

Hi lt - not to sound like a smarty-pants but, you're kinda going about it backwards. One will usually begin by asking "What will I be fishing for and with what reel and line?", then choose a rod to compliment that.

Since you already have that nice Loomis, I would recommend using it for jigs and/or worms. The 6-6 length will give you the ability to cast these deep-working baits farther. IMHO, topwater baits are better served with a 5 to 6 footer, giving one better accuracy in lure placement.

Consider a 7' M/Fast spinning rod for weightless plastics & a 7' MH/Mod for cranks & other treble hook lures.
