using a ford fender rig???? I hate the short rods .... Just wondering if a 10' rod is a bit to much.....May seem like a dumb question but I am very new to lake trolling and wondering about the drag??????????????
Where I am from, out east, it all depends on what you are trolling for and if weights are used. Small fish near the surface can be fished with a 6 ft rod. That is the type of rod you would hold in your hand and it would be better to feel the take.
I havn't been out lake trolling in a while. But I love my 7'6" Ugly Stick Lite. It's light enough to handle small fish, and still have a good time, and I even took it out for chum, and landed them no problem.
