Default Re: please help with gear set up

Swim baits I always like fishing them with a shorter lighter rod.
I use a 9' 1-3 oz rod for certain applications like the one you mention ( that's just me ) but, like Rob stated, go heavier on the swimmer.
I find for most, if not all, of my casting the 9'er ( I have a few of them ) does what I want. I was never a big fan of longer rods although I do use a 10 foot bait soaker.
