Rod recommendation

Rate this topic

Hoping to come down and chase some tarpon in late summer/fall.  What spinning rods are you guys using for open beach and inlets? I have an 11’ CTS S7 that can throw 2 oz Hogy pro tails to 4 oz crippled herrings.  I plan on getting a 2nd rod, any recommendations?  Thanks.

That rod should work well. What size reel and what do you have it spooled with? 
 

I would suggest a second rod that is lighter, like a 8-9’ for 1-3 oz.

 

November 2018 I landed a 100lb+ tarpon on the beach with a 11’ Century S2 1326 paired with a 6000 series reel and 30# 832. The lure was a 1.5 Hogy Pro-tail, during the mullet run.

Depending on the area, I fish Sebastian inlet with a 9’ 20-40 it’ll cast a 2oz jig as far as I need to. When fishing the beach I use an 8’6 17-30 but in the beach I’m mainly throwing live bait and casting maybe 10-15 yards off the beach if that
