a stubby rod with a long bent butt with spectra and a shock leader to the bait. no rod bend or stretch.. so it creates a better hook set....good luck

Bent butt works well like he said.. Takes some of the fun out of fishing b/c you cant stand up & fight the fish.. I prefer mono line rather than wire line.. Mono gives and absorbs the shock..

if your looking to use wire try one of these setups. Use a trolling weight and a dark colored island type lure.
