The rod worked best with these offerings in 3/4 oz to 1 oz.
My salmon rods use casting round reels that are hot rodded.

My longer salmon rods are used for high low rigs and sliding float rigs for fluking. The longer length does not cast larger plugs very well as they overload on the backcast with lures over 2 oz.

All that being said, I have hooked up with large rays on a 10 1/2 foot salmon rod and Abu Record 51 and brought them to the sand after long struggles.

Salmon rods are not my choice targeting big fish around hard structure and Jettys.

I've been out at the tip on the Jetty of Barnegate inlet, with a big ray on the line and had to tip toe back to the sand to land them and not loose all my mono. Lots of fun, time consuming and tricky even with studded Korkers on.

You can whip almost anything with a salmon and fly rod with good technique, but know that a big bass in a long struggle has to be handled properly before release, as it will be exhausted
Yep ! fantastic rods out there
I own a 9'10" salmon rod ( 4 piece ) rated 1/16 -1 1/2 oz fast action tip I purchased it at a sportsman show more than 10 years ago . Im not going into any fish tales but it helped me with 40 lb Tarpon , 42" Snook , 4' reef shark & 28 lb Striper all on artificials . Its my favorite rod paired with a Shimano CI4 3000 & 4000 Know exactly mean can throw arties all day long & not get tired . Thanks for sharing

My son was disappointed it wasn?t his fish, but was excited to meet his first striper in person. If he wasn?t hooked before, he is now. Already talking about next weekend.
Great Dad. Good work!

To combine two lines of the thread...
I'm going to get to make a run to IBSP tomorrow with my 12 year old daughter who loves to fish. She'll use my 7' Tsunami Slimwave and I'll break out my 10' 6" (4 piece) salmon rod. We'll see if the front is holding any fish and probably end up out back on the bay side throwing bucktails. It looks like an excellent weather day and the tides are not bad.

snow affects a bite more than rain, even if the air temp is only a few degrees difference.

John Skinner had a reminder about it in his "season on the edge" reminding me what I already knew... the melting of the snow absorbs energy dropping the water temp very rapidly. Yes, we know of stories of fishing a blitz in a snowstorm, but just sayin'

Down here, once the ocean temp got down near 50F the blackfish bite turned off big time. This year, it turned off a lot sooner for some reason (only talking about the relatively shallow bay bite, not ocean wrecks)

IBSP was OK yesterday. The daughter and I caught 5 schoolies in the 20 to 22 inch range out back, all on 1/2 ounce BT's with curly tails. The wind was sharpish from the WNW, which I hadn't expected. We fished for about 3 hours and all the fish showed up in one half hour window. So it goes.

The front looked like it should have been fishy, but nothing was doing. Nobody much was cruising the beach and the dead stickers were all nodding off in their beach chairs. It might have gotten more interesting as the tide rose in the evening, but we had to book it home for a party.
