Different fish for different rods


Recommended Posts

Hi all.

I bought a 4-8kg ugly stik a couple of months ago, and haven't really used it much because I have no idea what to use it for. From my understanding this is probably too light for kingfish, and I prefer to use my lighter rods for flatties, bream and Whiting.

So from your experience, what size rods would you use when targeting different species?

4-8 is heaps for rat kings, might be a bit under gunned on the bigger fellas though.

I personally go as light as possible, with a good reel you can land most fish on light rods as long as there's no structure to get reefed on.

When the kingys where coming in the boat thick and fast last year in the harbour

Me and my mate were using 5 inch plastics on 2-6 and 2-4 kg rods on kings and we got em in easily (of course being kingys they put up a great fight but we got the in)
