Hi All! First post here... hoping for some advice.
I'm currently fishing with a 10'6" Tica UEHA632002S (2-8oz) - Reel is a Penn Battle 6000. I really enjoy the feel of the rod, though prior to this one I've fished mostly heavy, low-end rods.
I usually fish with bunker chunks, clams, or sand fleas. My experience is that the rod throws 4oz+bait well, but 6oz+bait seems a bit heavy for it. Lately it seems that 4oz just isn't holding, so I've been starting at 6oz.
If I stick with Tica, would the 11' UEHA733502S (3-8oz) feel more at home with 6nbait? Or would the 12' UEHA836502S (4-10oz) be a better fit? Any other recommendations around that price range?
I enjoy the light feel of the 10'6" rod that I have now and want to avoid fishing with a telephone pole if I can
. If there are schoolie bluefish biting, I still want to be able to have some fun reeling them in.
(I've been looking at Tica rods just because I already have one... I've also heard good things about the Tsunami Airwaves. I'm really open to anything within my budget that would pair nicely with my Penn Battle).
