6'6MH Veritas, with a TD Advantage spinning reel - 8lb test, most all soft plastics

7'MH Veritas, with a TD Advantage(6.4:1) BC - 12lb test, spinnerbaits, jigs, lipless, heavier weighted plastics, some cranks

7'M Okuma Citrix rod, with an Okuma Citrix(7.1:1) reel - Any lighter stuff or things I want to burn.

I shore fish about 85% of the time so it would be hard carrying around a combo for every technique. These 3 setups do very well just beating the banks.

Casting:

Abu Garcia 4600 C4/Acadia F Series 7'MH/15lb mono- spinnerbaits, traps, small to med. soft swimbaits

Shimano Curado E5/Fenwick Goldenwing 6'6"M/12lb mono- cranks, jerkbaits, topwater

Ardent C400/ St Croix Mojo Bass 7'MHF/50lb braid-jigs, plastics, frogs

BPS Carbonlite/ St. Croix Avid 6'6" MHF/ 30lb braid- jigs, plastics

Daiwa Advantage 150H/ Shakespeare Ugly Stik 6'M/12lb mono-general purpose leave in the car rod

Spinning:

Pflueger Trion 4730/ Acadia F Series 6'6" M/20lb braid-tubes,dropshot,weightless plastics

Gander Mountain metal series reel/Shakespeare ugly stik lite pro 7'M/ 8lb mono- treble hook lures too light for casting gear i.e. original rapalas, #5 shad raps, etc.

This covers everything I throw just fine, but I'd like to add a cranking specific casting setup and 1 more general purpose plastics spinning setup, so I can have a tube and a dropshot tied on at the same time.

I fish from the shore.

1) Quantum Code Rod 6'6" MH Fast, Quantum Code BC Reel 6.3:1, 20# green Sufix Braid

2) Shimano Compre Rod 6'6" MH Extra-Fast, Shimano Citica E BC Reel 6.3:1, 20# green Sufix Braid

That's it really; I mainly throw Plastic worms Texas rigged and frogs/topwater buzzers.

Oh and the bass in my picture came a few months ago on this crappie setup of mine:

3) Shimano Voltaeus 5'6" UL Medium-Fast, Quantum Kinetic 10PTiB Spinning Reel 5.3:1, 4# clear SufixSiege Mono

It all works! Just need to find the fish and get them to bite :goofy3:
