I need some help on choosing a rod for spinning tackle. Here’s the details:
I always keep 3 rods on my boat set up for spinning gear for guests who don’t fish bait cast stuff like I do. I have 2 setups already….both with Shimano Stradic reels and St Croix Legend Tournament rods (bought at the factory for around $110 instead of the usual $220 !!)
I am buying a 3rd setup and have already bought a Shimano Stradic 400 reel at Cabelas but I am stumped on a good M or MH spinning rod. It has to be able to manage the occasional big Pike or Musky (albeit not perfectly but with effort), but still manage smallies and Walleye . It should be around 6’8” or 7’ in length and either fast or very fast action.
I’d like to spend about $100 plus or minus $15.
Any ideas would help.
