Sorry, don't have any of their rods. But an 8' rod is a bit big for a fluke party boat. Although I've seen people using something similar. Some time you just got to go with what's in the arsenal. You will be definitly over amped, but that doesn't say they won't work. Personally, I think you'll have more fun on a fluke boat with lighter equipment. I'm usually using a 7 foot rod 15-25 line and 3/4 to 3 for bait bouncing, and a 7' 10 -20 line 1/2 -1 1/2 for lures. And for fluke they're rigged on the lighter side. Just my opinion, I'm sure you'll hear more.

I thought that they fluke in water much deeper than that i heard 60 to 80 ft
and you would need a 6 to 8 oz weight to hold bottom.

thanks for info

What pole and reel combo do you think would be best for fluking on a partyboat from cheap to pricey

Depends where you'll be fishing. Lately alot of PBs have been targeting Ambrose Channel and you can easily need 8-12ozs of lead at time. 8' is a bit long IMHO but should work ok as a few guys I know like 7'6"+ rods.

Which rod is best? All depends on where you'll be fluking, how, and personal preference. For me I love light tackle bucktailing for the flatties so my rods range around that. I have a friend that makes me custom Graphite-USA rods. For me, I like the fast action to bounce thos bucktails. For dragging bait with heavy weight I have some slighlty slower action, beefier graphite rods.

Honestly, rental rods have been catching a lot of fluke lately on a couple party boats I know...go figure

Rod sounds like it would work for blackfish, just personaly not familiar with Rogue rods.
I use 7' rods for majority of my fluking. A few may be just over 7' so 8' shouldn't be too bad.

You can check out northeastrodbuilders website for info on the GUSA rods.

Tsunami always seems to offer good rods at real good prices. I've got a 6' classic and an 8' Trophy surfcaster, and I'm looking at picking up one of their casting rods.
