Default A good rod for jerkbaits?

What would you suggest? I decided I'm done talking trash about how much I hate walleyes, and I'm going to teach myself how to fish for them this spring.

I bought a bunch of various sizes baits, but I want to know what kind of rods you use...

Thanks in advance for serious replies.

G Loomis E6 6'6" medium power, fast action (722S SJR). Great rods for the money.

Landbigfish should have a 20% off sale around Easter.

I just had my first experience with landbigfish replacing one of my favorite lures. They are great easy site to use and fast delivery.

13 Fishing Omen 7'1" MH is a great rod too.

6'6" to 6'8" medium power, fast action tip. I use StCroix Avid. Lots of good choices in rods are available. My freind Kevin uses a Gander Mountain branded rod and loves it.

For eyes a 6'6"- 6'8" MF or MXF is a good choice. Just depends on how large the bait is and what kind of cadence you're trying to achieve.

No way I'd ever use a glass cranking rod for jerks. And Goonie can't use a baitcaster, stop playin', fools!



6'-6" to 7'-0", med to medium heavy (I prefer med/hvy), fast to extra fast action.

If you're working on a budget, Gander Mountain Tournament and GSX rods are your best value bet, IMO. The GSX rod blanks are Omen blanks. On sale, those rods are worth every penny. I also think they're lighter and far more sensitive than St. Croix's over priced, tree branch rods.

If money isn't a problem, go with what AO said.
