What would you use this rod for ?


Recommended Posts

So i got the following Shimano Jewel Rod thinking i would use it for chasing snapper before i began researching on snapper and how to catch. 


Reason i chose this was because i though oh i need to have be able to handle heavy snapper leads to get the baits to the bottom.. but after doing some reading it seems not a good choice for a dedicated snapper rod.


so this poses the question... would this rod be just a good general purpose boat rod? Could i use it for jigging maybe (never jig fished in my life). Current reel on the rod is a Nasci 4000 with 20lb mono.



When the funds allow will go the Shimano Ocea offshore (specs below) probably with a 5k stradic reel for my dedicated snapper rod
