THE boat rod

Rate this topic

2 posts in this topic

Al and folks,

I'm looking to build a new boat rod this winter to ward off the shack nasties. The predominant use would be for three-waying eels, with weights anywhere from 2 to 8 oz. Other potential uses would include jigging, dragging chunks, and I even have delusional thoughts of being slightly undergunned against some school tuna (that would be an ancillary consideration at best). Would most likely be matched with something along the lines of a Calcutta 700, fishing 25 or 30 mono.

I'm looking for a rod with ample backbone, especially in the bottom half of the rod, but with a relatively sensitive tip and an overall flex that enjoys a deep bend. Lami would be preferred, but would love to hear about any other ideas you might have for it. Thanks for the help, and I look forward to hearing your suggestions.
