Bluegill - Big Bluegill

Do you love big bluegill?

I am entertaining the idea of getting a longer panfish rod.  Are they good for casting long distances?

Tony up till about 3 years ago that's all I used is UL between 4'.5" to 5'. I still own about a dozen of the smaller rods. I did start to buy some longer rod up to 6'.5". they have there place but only if I want a little longer cast. I found they are clumsy and always in the way but like I said they do have there place.

I use 12' rods for fishing vertically and/or drifting with 1/80, 1/64 & 1/32 jigs. The reels are filled with Fireline or PowerPro with a 4# fluro leader. The jigs are tied with feathers & kip tail. I also use some plastics on a plain jig head.

For casting I use 7', 8'6" & 9'. This year I started using Fireling Crystal in 4# & 6# with a fluro leader.

yes i have 1 9' B& M ULTRA LITE AND A 7' QUANTUM XTRALITE SPINNING THAT  ARE BOTH GREAT FOR LONGER CASTING
