Light tackle is really only any good for running fish, but for fish that have to be reeled up from the depths then you may find that a light rod and reel won't last the distance, I would stick with the Titus Gold and Kenzaki rod and you will at least stand a chance of landing something bigger.Hi all I'm off to lyngen in June I'm toying with the idea of getting a fixed spool reel and jigging rod for shad, sidewinder work etc. would the outfit have enough back bone incase I hooked up into something big and would it last the weeks hammering lol . I'll be taking a okuma titus gold 15 multiplier and a 20 -30 lb kenzaki travel rod as back up or shall I just stick to that outfit I like the idea of fishing light. Any advice would be helpful cheers gb
I remember once when we were wreck fishing for Pollock and when the drift slowed I decided to use a light spinning rod which was almost bent double playing some of the smaller Pollock and it was great fun, then I hooked a big Ling and I thought the rod was going to break so I ended up hand lining it in and it wasn't much fun.
Use the right gear for the right fish and it's fun.
