The canal is one of the stragest areas to fish. Most regulars who fish there have a desnigated rod that they solely use on the cape...i wouldn't call myself a regular, but here is what I use...

I've got a seven foot ugly stick tiger boat rod that I find works great for the canal...i've matched with a shimano baitrunner 4500 reel...nothing better for fishing live bait.

the canal requires a heavy rod that can handle a lot of weight and one that is stiff enough through the blank to wrench the fish up....

Leave the expenisve light rods at home and go heavy....
later and good luck matt
