Rod will depend on if you are fishing on your own boat or off a party boat. Most prefer an 8 foot rod if fishing from a Party boat. I fish from my own boat and prefer a 7 foot rod. My newest set-up is the new 7' Shimano Teraz Rod (heavy) paired with a Shimano Talica 16II. 50lb braid. Check out the high/low cod rigs from Peace Token tackle. You can also add some pink grubs. I usually will be fishing with 14 to 18 oz. of lead.
