Below is my most used fishing gear and what I recommend for any serious or simple fishing trip.
Great rod to throw SP Minnows or lures all day in the surf. Strong and lightweight. Med - long butt on it to really use that leverage to cast whatever you throw far. I have this in a 10ft 6in.
Great rod for the skiffs or charters. 6ft 6in in medium heavy will handle any Lingcod, Cabezon or Rockfish you can throw at it. It is also strong enough to handle a King Salmon if the opportunity arises.
My go-to rod for fishing the rocks. Amazing all around rod for so many applications: charter boat, skiff, sandy beaches, rock, pier and more. 2pc so breaks down and easily transportable.
