Bluefish/Striper Setup

Rate this topic

3 posts in this topic

I'm looking to fish for Blues and Stripers on headboats, both jigging and chunking. Maybe some wreck fishing for other species here and there. I recently won a Penn Spinfisher V 8500 and I picked up a Medium Fast 6' 6" Shimano Tallus. I might return the Tallus in favor of another rod, I'm not sure if a ML action has enough backbone for 5 or 6oz sinkers. I'll probably put 30lb or 40lb mono on my reel. Does this seem alright?

Use a different rod,MH would be much better for 5oz or more. I wouldn't use a ML for anything more than 1oz work. I'm assuming there is bait involved as well.
