If your out at sea your usually a long way from home and having gear that is not going to handle the pace and let you down is not an option.

Some rods you will get away with using one for several applications, but if you want to maximise your chances of landing a fish of a lifetime you really need to give yourself the best chanc e by making sure you have a rod that is right for the job.

Bottom BashingSpinning rods

If sensitivity is not an option and you are targetting big fighting fish like, yellow tail kings or cobia, then you can probably get away with using your regular trolling rod for this application.

If you need a little more sensitivity for snapper or jew, then something less rigid like a heavier duty spinning rod is a good option.

Construction: Graphite or Carbon fibre

Line guides: Ceramic or heavy duty silicone guides

Must have: Quality reel seat and comfortable grips

Lures and PoppersSpinning rods

You need a good quality spinning rod, that will allow you to get reasonable distance with your casts, no matter how heavy the lure or popper is.

Throwing poppers for GT’s or jigging for king fish, you will need a heavier more robust rod, than if your throwing lures into a school of Mac tuna or salmon, so keep that in mind when choosing a rod for this type of fishing.

Construction: Graphite or Carbon fibre

Line guides: Ceramic or heavy duty silicone guides

Must have: Quality reel seat and comfortable grips, quality line guides for effortless, trouble free casting.
