I have an 11' Tica Dolphin med-heavy for 3-8oz bait and wait. Use that with an abu-garcia c3. My other bait rod is a 10' (mumble mumble... can't remember... but slightly softer than the Tica) and use it for 3-6oz bait and wait, paired with what I consider to be an AWESOME reel: the Shimano Calcutta 200B. Someone at Tackle Direct steered me toward this reel (also maybe someone on this site) and I thank them every time I cast it.
The third rod I bring is for small stuff, typically kingfish, and is an 8' $15 bass pro rod paired with a baitcasting reel (decent, but not expensive reel) that I use to toss bloodworms (real or fishbites) out for kingfish, or spot or whatever else small shows up. These wind up as panfish or bait, depending
