Hello everyone,

I started surf fishing about 3 years ago always with live bait. I bought 2 10' rods from sporting good store they work well,but this past year I saw someone plugging and he caught 18 stipers to my 4. I tried plugging with my rods and got tired pretty quick, which comes to my question who makes a good puggin surf rod? I don't want to go broke ,but I would like to start pluggin this year for stripers. Any help would greatly be appreciated.

Check the Tica's out they have come a long way and are a good value around 100 dollars.

Also look at the Shimano Spheros 5000FA I have one and it is a good reel for the surf. They go for about 100 dollars.

keep to something fairly light and 9' max. Tica's, Okuma's and Lamiglas surf kings are all good light rods for the money.

"LAMIGLAS" Go with the Lamiglas 8'6" Tri-Flex Rod TS86MS 5/8-2OZ 10-17LB LINE. You will luv it, 2 piece also. Or the Tri-Flex 9'. Good Luck.

I second the Tica UEHA recommendation. I've moved on to building my own rods, but my first pluggin' rod was a Tica, and I still use it every once in a while. It's a good, light stick that performs reasonably well, and it definitely gives you good bang for the buck.
