Hey guys, Iam thinking about getting a new rod and reel for a specific purpose. Live bait rigging, something that i can fine tune the presentation of live bait. Can you guys recomend the type of pole what type of action and that and what reel to get? Id like to shop for something affordable.
Iam thinking of also going with 8-10# flurocarbon line, i usualy use monofiliment. Does flurocarbon work better for live bait? what are the advanatages/disadvanatges? Thanks for your guy's help.
P.S. I picked a lake and resort to stay at this summer, Teepee-Tonka Resort on Blackduck lake starting the week before labor day. Sent my deposit in today.
Jason, Go to www.stcroixrods.com and use the rod selector tab and choose your application at least you will be able to find what lenght and action you will need and you could apply that to any rod you want as far as you reel you cant go wrong with Shimano. Good luck on your trip
