Conventional

1-Penn First Stike IMS 6'6"/Okuma Induron 250 spooled with #15 braid. Usually use 3 ounces of lead or less bucktails in the 1-1.5 oune range

2-Custom Lamiglas 7'0"/Shimano-TR100G spooled with #20 braid. This was my primary fluking stick last season. Usually hang between 3-6 ounces of lead on it. Can hold up to 8.

3-Shimano Atlantic Series ATL70M 7'0"/Shimano TR-100G spooled with #20 braid. Didn't use this allot last season but did the season prior. Nice set up for dragging bait when you don't need allot of lead.

4-Bogan Custom Fluke Rod 7'0"/Shimano TR-200G. This set-up I use mainly for live lining snappers but will also drag bait in the ocean with

4-Penn GLS 700 7'0"/Penn 955. I have a pair of these and Jason has one all with the same reel spooled with #20 braid. This is my main bucktailing stick in the ocean. Jason will also pull bait with his. Best used with 3-4 ounce bucktails but can handle 6.

5-Shimano Compre CPC 70MH 7'0"/Abu Pro Rocket 6500 spooled with #30 braid. Haven't fished this yet but will be my go to rod for bucktailing with 6 ounces.

6-Custom wrapped Lamiglas 7'0"/Penn 965 spooled with #20 braid. Was my go to rod 2 years ago. Nice soft tip with plenty of backbone. Still love this rod and will use it more this season.

7-Custom wrapped Lamiglas/Shimano Tekota 600 spooled with #30 braid. This rod I use when fishing the deeper channels when you need 8 ounces (have hung 20 a few times when eeling in Ambrose) and for deep water ocean fluking. Also sees duty as an eeling rod and blackfishing stick

8-Daiwa Procaster PR52T/Shimano Calcutta 250. Have a pair of these spooled with #10 mono. Haven't used these in a while. I like using these when fishing areas like the Belford flats and dragging a single spearing on small hooks. Also make great weakfishing set ups.

Spinning

9-Shimano CarboMax SCM60M 6'0"/Penn4400SS spooled with #10 braid. Used for fishing off the Keyport & Port Monmouth piers. Sees double duty as a flounder set up as well.

10-GLoomis SJR 722 6'0"/Shimano Stardic 2000FG spooled with #10 braid. Fished with 3/8-3/4 ounce bucktails. Love using this rod when bucktailing places like the Manasquan River.

11-Rogue SJ664S/Shimano Stradic 4000FH spooled with #15 braid. Fished with .75-1.25 ounce bucktails. My go to bucktail rod when fishing water under 25'.

All of this thread reminds me of Lee Trevino discussing what driver to use to improve a tee shot.

He replied.... "It's not the arrow, it's the Indian"   Grin

Hey Guys I'm a little late on this one. By now I'm sure you know I tend to fish on a budget and hate it but we do what we have to do. Our fluke rods are Shakespeare Ugly Sticks
M# BWC1120 medium heavy action in either a 6'6" or 7' model. It's good for weights up to 8 oz. match it with a simple Penn reel Model 209, or I just bought a GTO220 for the wife this year, Whole outfit is going to run about $125. I like the Penn reels because they are simple to service and have proven theirselves over the years.  thumbs up

Remember the quote MGM posted about Lee Trevino. That holds true for fishing as much as anything else.

For fishing, it's not the rod and reel that catches the fish. It has more to do with presentation and knowing where and when to fish.
Granted, you get a better feel of what is going on down below with the braid line, composite rods, etc, but you still have all the other variables that go into catching a fish.  thumbs up

Use what you have and enjoy the sport.

I'll bet there's more Fluke caught with an Ugly Stik than all the other models that were mentioned here combined.

I started out with Ugly Sick rods and caught fish, however my catching and enjoyment went up significantly using rods crafted just for me and for specific uses like bucktailing. thumbsup2

Right tool for the job helps a lot.

Just picked up a Cabo 20 and will be placing it on my new custom spinning rod hopefully by month end.  Will report back on how the reel and rod are.

Well the Cabo spooled up nicely and balances on it's temporary home of my good old Lami flats popping stick(XPS704)

Had some 10# Tuff Line XP in yellow so on it went.  Takes a good amount of it too.  Can't wait to fish it. thumbsup2

Spooled up T's purple Avet SX with some pink Fireline too.

My blue Avet SX does seem to have some play in the anti-reverse Huh Not as much as a Newell but significantly more than T's purple one.

Smooth as silk, casts great, reels smooth, drag is like buttah.  Think T wants one now

I didn't really use my Avet SX but T fished her's for ahile this weekend.  Says it's real nice. Reels nice and smooth and no issues with the pink Fireline. thumbsup2

Bought my wife a TICA 7' MH spinning rod with a Penn Real Pursuit 4000. It's a nice outfit for Flukin as far as I am concerned and cost $170.00.

Ask a man what he prefers in woman and you will get a hundred opinions,and the same goes for fishing equipment,guns,golf clubs,Bats....etc.etc. Sometimes what we like isn't always right but that's what makes the world go round. I thought the subject was rate the outfit you bought.  

(Making reference to early post)
