Spinning rod for zoom flukes

Recommended Posts

Greetings. Looking for a new spinning rod to go with a daiwa exceler 2500 reel for fishing zoom super flukes. Thought I'd seek the advice of the best on the net. Have looked at 6'6 & 7'0 M St. Croix Avids, Premieres, Shimano compres, fenwick HMG & others & am still undecided. Suggestions? Thanks.

Brand aside, I'd look for something 7' Med or even ML with a fast action.

Personally, I fish flukes with the rod tip down most of the time, and I find a 7ft rod a bit too long for that.  But 6'8" works really well for casting distance, hook setting power and comfort for me.

I'd go with a 6'6" MH.  Flukes aren't light, and with the right line (I'd say 15-20lb braid) you should be able to bomb them out there. 

Plus the MH will make setting the hook a breeze, and let you fish the fluke in between pads without fear of getting hung up.

You will like this rod matched with your reel.

Besides flukes, this combination will handle

all soft plastics, light jigs, spinnerbaits and

buzzbaits.

I have this rod in the Legend Tournament series and it is a very good action for Flukes and soft plastics. I also like to fish Rapalas with it.

I have this rod in the Legend Tournament series too. I use it for Flukes will good success. I like it for tubes and wacky rigging too.

I use a 7' 6" ML/F spinning outfit.  Delaware Valley Tackle's suggestion is a good one.
