Random Quote: Three-fourths of the Earth's surface is water, and one-fourth is land. It is quite clear that the good Lord intended us to spend triple the amount of time fishing as taking care of the lawn.
do jigging rods generally cast very well? i have two shimano thunnus 120000s and i was wanting one of them set up with a good jigging rod and one of them set up to cast jigs and similar lures with as as much distance as i can. my question is do jigging rods cast very well so i could get two jigging rods and use them for casting too or do i need to get one set up esp for casting?
Are they "ideal" for casting, no. Will they work, and people use them to cast baits, myself included? Yes. If budget/space isn't an issue I'd get another rod for casting, if not then your jigging rod can serve a dual purpose.
