Medium Light vs Light


fishing user avatarFisher Guy reply : 

trying to decide between a St Croix Medium Light 7' Spinning rod or a St croix 6'-6' Light Spinning Rod.  Anyone know the differences?  fishing large mouth in a 26 acre lake.  


fishing user avatariabass8 reply : 

 One is a power heavier than the other ...

 One throws lighter baits better than the other 

One has a little more backbone than the other

One is 6 inches longer than the other one


fishing user avatarshaggydog reply : 

one is 7ft.


fishing user avatarEvanT123 reply : 

Go with the medium light. 


fishing user avatarMaster Bait'r reply : 

^lol

 

Go ML.  Great in-between power that can do so many things so well.  Light action rods I'd be using for super tiny baits and trout/stream fishing.  


fishing user avatarfvogel67 reply : 

I'm using a Abu Villian 6'9" MLF spinning rod with a Shimano Solstace 1000,spooled up with some 15 pound Power Pro.

Insanely light and and super sensitive.


fishing user avatarI.rar reply : 

I'd say it depends on what you want to do.

Are you a light tackle junkie? 

Whats the typical bait you plan to use the rod for? 

Any cover or open water? 

Confined spaces or fishing from boat/open bank? 


fishing user avatarFisher Guy reply : 

thanks all helpful.   i mostly fish rubber worms because thats where i catch most of my fish.  I fish from a canoe with a trolling motor.  Most success throwing in toward the bank but never really catch anything bigger than 3 lbs.  there are some trees over hanging but mostly open.  lots of lilly pads near banks.  Catch a lot but want quality not quantity.  i also don't have experience with plastic lures crank baits or jigs so don't catch much on them.   any advice is appreciated.  looking at the st croix ML 7' 2 piece.  thoughts?


fishing user avatarDarren. reply : 

Personally, I'd go with the ML rod. I did so with my
Legend Tournament and have been quite happy with
it.....

Are you fishing with senkos? They are such a great starter bait. Really no wrong way to fish them. They are great for numbers with the occasional big fish.


fishing user avatarww2farmer reply : 

I have owned many ML St Croix spinning rods............great "general purpose" spinning rod. St. Croix's tend to fish a little more powerful than they are rated, a ML St. Croix will be like a M Fenwick, Loomis, etc.....


fishing user avatar1simplemann reply : 

You really can't go wrong w/ a 6'6" or 6'9" ML St. Croix!   Especially w/ senkos.


fishing user avatarbuzzed bait reply : 

i too would opt for the ML and like farmer says it will fish like a more all-purpose M rod from other brands


fishing user avatarFisher Guy reply : 

what is a senko?

 


fishing user avatarMolay1292 reply : 

I think that the ML spinning rods from St.Croix are among the best produced.


fishing user avatarFisher Guy reply : 

cool i just got one

It's never to cold to go fishing!?  I would give fishing advice, but I don't know what area you live in or the water temperature. 


fishing user avatarFisher Guy reply : 

cape cod

 

i like to use a Keitech FAT Swing Impact Bluegill Flash lure but wonder if i should be using something else.  fish a lake across the street from my house a lot 

always cath bass and some pickerel but never over 3 lbs.  people say there are really big bass in there

What's the water temperature?

No such thing as a surefire lure, but I would recommend the Ned rig, and if the water has at least two or three feet of visibility a jerkbait would be great.


fishing user avatarFisher Guy reply : 

it does what kind of jerk bait?

 


fishing user avatarIndianaFinesse reply : 

I've done well with the lucky strike pointer and the Rick clunn jerkbaits.  And they don't work quite as well as the pointers or the Rick clunn, but the suspending rattling rogue is a good budget jerkbait.


fishing user avatarFisher Guy reply : 

thanks


fishing user avatarS Hovanec reply : 

I have both L and ML in 6'6" Avids.  I feel there is a whole power missing between them.  Go with the ML.


fishing user avatarFisher Guy reply : 

cool I'm excited
