I'm on the market for spinning rod for dam/bridge/tailwater striper fishing under $100. not a surf rod thouhg... most of the fish in my area are caught in close quarters along the wall of the dam. So a long surf rod is a litle bit overkill for flipping bucktails and live bait along the wall at my local dam.
I'd like a 7' or 7'6" graphite spinning rod with fairly large guides and a soft sensitive tip for casting live bait and casting plugs/spoons and other fairly light lures as well as 1-2oz jigs but with some backbone. also ild like to use the rod for bridge and pier snook in south florida on occasion.
has anyone used a light kingfish rod or a light offshore live bait spinning rod for stipers?
any suggestion or advice on a spinning rod would be appreciated
