Need your advice on my new combo!

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone! I need your opinion. I received a rod/reel combo as a gift ;) and was wondering what style of fishing you would use it for. Here are the specs:

Shimano Curado 201E7 loaded with 30lb braid

BPS Extreme 6'10" MH Extra Fast 10-20lb, 3/6-3/4oz lure wt.

This would be the shortest rod that I own and I'm not really sure what to use it for (jig, worm, small swimbaits?). I live in So.Florida if that makes a difference. I appreciate any input you can offer :)

Sounds like a Carolina Rig combo to me.

sounds like a great combo for everything except crankbaits and light lures.

ive never fished that rod  but by looking at the specs id say its best for jigs and t-rigs up to 1/2 oz plus trailer.

you might like it for spinnerbaits up to 5/8oz too.

im not sure if youre familiar with braid, but alot of people use flouro leaders in clear and lightly stained water.

Cherish your gift, it's a great 'all-purpose' casting outfit (minus finesse fishing).
