The rating is deceptive. You would think that a rod rated at 6-12 would be an inflexible broomstick however this isn't the case. It will throw and work topwaters or large plugs just as well as it throws heavy jigs. Its a very versatile rod for somewhere like the canal where big currents and big fish are in play.

It would be a short fishing day for me if I had to throw the weights indicated on that rod........I guess working out is recommended prior to fishing season..........nice gift however......tight lines.

Hi, sorry I just read better now.

 

This rod is for jigging 5oz lure, I used savage brand. With this rod is easy to fishing all night with this weight deeper lure.

 

I like to fish on CANAL Cape Cod

This summer,  schedule a weekend to fishing on CANAL of Cape Cod, will be a good experience. The powerful water force you to use a big lures on high tide.

 

You will catch bigger like this, thi baby still there, me and my father release it. I hooked it on tail, big fighting.
