Q&A: Rod Recommendation for Kayak fishing in Panama & Florida

Updated: Apr 19, 2020


"I would like to purchase a conventional rod (reel recommendation would be appreciated) to use mainly for kayak fishing in Panama and Florida. The main use would be for live bait/dead bait. Interested in something light that could handle cubera , roosterfish smaller yellowfin in Panama--perhaps tarpon in Florida--short for travel--if not a two piece. Could also use for jigging. In Panama jig weight--60 gram to 150 but main use would be bait--I have access to another rod for jigging--kayak fishing there is extra risk of losing rod overboard so interested in something fairly economical. Best and thanks for your time and expertise."


"I recommend Black Hole Cape Cod Special 80g - 150g rods as well as Black Hole Cape Cod Special Slow Pitch rods."
