Fishing Rods
Kayaking - Kayaking Equipment

A five to seven foot rod is fine for trolling, jigging and bait fishing. Some kayakers like using short rods and a few like using longer rods. Decide what works best for you and the intended catch. Select the action that suits the weight of line, tackle and fish you are going after. You will probably find you prefer using light gear for kayak fishing. I like to set the drag just enough to keep line from pulling out. This will give you some time to grab your rod after a strike and eliminates the risk of "Old Moe" from pulling the kayak over. I would choose rods with long butts so they will rest in the rod holder securely.
