i need help

Recommended Posts

Heres where I am at equipment wise:

All Star Team Series - 7'0'' Medium Heavy Fast

Abu Garcia Record: RCN50 (6.3:1)

Yo-Zuri Hybrid  (12lb. - Camo Green)

I use this set-up for primarily T-rigs because thats just about all i'm good at right now. Very comfortable with the t-rigs and know what i am doing.

I need to expand and start learning new techniques. I bought some crankbaits and topwater lures. so I assume I need a M action moderate speed rod and a 5.x:x gear ratio reel.

For spinnerbaits I planned on using my t-rig set up. (will that be alright? I don't want to put too much money into application specific setups until I know it is something I will use alot.)

Lastly I have a many little pond in neighborhoods around here that have small bass and crappie. They tear up little roadrunner jigs and 1/16 ounce rooster tails. So I want to get a nice UL setup going. any suggestions

Maybe this will help:

Specifically:

Technique specific rods are for "enthusiasts".

Almost all your fishing can be done with just

one rod. Beyond that, you only "need" three rods:

Spinning: 6 1/2' or 7', M or MH, Fast Action

(soft plastics and light lures)

Baitcasting: MH or H, Fast Action

(jigs, spinnerbaits, buzzbaits and all single hooks)

Baitcasting: MH, Moderate Action

(all treble hook lures)

So the set up I already own....:

All Star Team Series - 7'0'' Medium Heavy Fast

Abu Garcia Record: RCN50 (6.3:1)

Yo-Zuri Hybrid  (12lb. - Camo Green)

would work great for Texas rigs(1/8weight and finesse worms), spinnerbaits, jigs, frogs for now? This rod is extremely stiff for a MH so between what you posted here and the link I came up with that I need a MH or H for these applications so a really stiff MH falls right in there.

Then for crankbaits topwater:

7' M/M cranking rod

Abu Garcia winch

Then for crappie/small pond bass(1lbs. just fishing in backyard)

6'6'' UL

spinning reel(have no clue what spinning reels i want)

Then eventually for t-rigs only set up:

7' MH/F

Abu Garcia STX HS

when you say soft plastics on the ML spinning set-up... what soft plastics lures are you talking about. With a finesse worm and 1/8 worm weight I can cast on baitcaster very accurately so I know its not too light. any examples please?

Well, you have been around here awhile...

You know I wouldn't be recommending any

Abbadabbado...but that's still the "general"

line-up.

Hey Suthern. RW gave some good tips and I think you have studied up on it!  :)

I like your choice for T-rigs only. That's my choice also for deep (25 - 60 ft) jigs.

I would suggest a 6'6" or 7' medium fast action. These are some of the most used rods I own.Ther'e good for a wide variety of baits.
