Do you love big bluegill?
Okay BBG members, lets hear what your favorite ultralight setups consist of. Lookin to buy me a new setup and im just curious to see what the best ones i should look into are
Everybody have personal favorite rods and reels. Here's what I like very much .... 7ft St. Croix ulta-light rod and Shimano Symeter 1500 - 2500 openface reel. I also use Bass Pro Shop Micro-lite 7 ft 6 inch Ultra-light rod. Its reasonable price but LOT of bluegills for me! Same reel Shimano Symeter. I like 7 ft Bass Pro Shop 7 ft LIGHT rod for 6 lbs test line on live bait around covers. Do not use tiny reels! Good size reel like hold 120 yards of 6 lbs test line that you use 4 lbs test line for easier to cast small lure farther!
My best rig, for me, is a G-Loomis SJR 720 6' MAG-LIGHT EX-FAST ACTION with a mounted Abu Garcia cardinal 5 ball bearing, infinite anti reverse, ultralite series. I use 2# to a max 6# test fluro carbon, with great success. If they breath on my jig or minnow, I got' em. Can hold it all day and rarely have tennis elbow.
Hi my favorite spin rod is a G-Loomis SR720-2 6' GL3 ultra light mod fast action with a Shimano Sedona 500FD the other is a Fenwick Legacy LG45S UL 4'6" with a Shimano AX ul-s that rod has the slide rings on the handle.and a Orvis full flex 6' with also a slide ring handle. Sleepy
