Which rod and reel set up?


 Share

Recommended Posts

Ok, so after loosing my conoflex kayak rod and shimano 4000 FS reel yesterday. I’m in the market for a replacement set up. 
Im thinking a rod and reel for mackerel fishing, bream and maybe a bit of jigging? I don’t want to buy a specific rod for jigging as I don’t really do it. But I do have a couple of jigs 80g that could be used at Yarmouth deep in the solent. It’s a place I drift for bass. 
So what recommendations can you guys offer? @Terry Smith

We all know about the Shimano Reel availability at the moment but I've just managed to get hold of the Sustain 4000XG so I have a limited number in stock.

Take a look at the Temple Reef Mythos Light range ( the Best light jigging rods on the market) https://jigabite.co.uk/productspds.aspx?sectionID=124&mv=0&sn=0

Thanks Terry, but for a mackerel/bream rod and reel that's about £350 more than i was looking to spend.

No problem, Jigabite only supplies mid to high end rods and reels so you would be better off down your local tackle store I guess?

Ok that’s fine. Just didn’t know if you sold other stuff too. I’d rather give my money to a forum member, but never mind.

For what you plan to use it for, a light to medium spinning rod would be a suitable option. Savage Gear do some decent spinning rods. I also seem to remember that there's an Ugly Stik spinning version.

What you on about? A spinning rod would be fine for bream and macks, and would also do double duty as an occasional jigging rod. I reckon you need to go back to bed Steve...
