I thought about using a surf rod, but I figured it would just give those swimbait snobs another reason to laugh at me (and I mean "another" cuz I'm sure they have plenty already). :p Yeah, just get yourself a swimbait rod.

I'm new to this fishing thing but I love it. I don't see myself using swimbaits yet. Just like to soak up as much knowledge on fishing as I can. I'm sure that in time I will wanna try it. Thanks a lot

Don't do it. Don't try big swimbaits. It's addictive, expensive, not very productive, and people (and many fish) will laugh at you and ridicule your efforts. All the time. ;)

If you ignore the above, then you can get an XH or XHH swimbait rod to throw the 7+ ounce baits. You might make friends with your local orthopedic surgeon, too. I did...

I use a 7.9 foot Dobyn's rod rated up to 3 oz. and love it. I also have A 7' Musky Bucktail rod to throw anything heavier. I bought the Dobyn's from Tackle Warehouse.

You weren't asking me but here are a couple:




I think I'm starting to understand the swimbait craze. The power to tame fish is unreal... Wipers feel like white bass. Bass feel like minnows:


A good fix for a little man complex. And I am a midget. :biggrin1:

Nice fish aofisher. Even though I'm a size or three bigger than a midget, I don't catch a lot of fish. So that should be relative to me...

Bwahaha! Midget is not a race... I don't technically qualify as a midget, but I'd rather be called a midget (short stature) than a "little person" (could be little in more ways). Mind and soul > flesh. Seriously, I will no longer call myself a midget. But I resent "little person," so "short person" it shall be in the future. :biggrin1:

C'mon, man, let your inner little person out. Just let it all out... We are all little in some ways inside. Everything is gonna be OK... :biggrin1:

Nice. Looks like the river2sea waver does the job. I was considering checking those out myself.

Different word / grammatical construction. Don’t be like Opry now… You are both better readers than that. :D I guess, I should quit playing that game too. I got you the first time around. :biggrin1: I hope I didn't offend anyone.
