Lures rods for bait fishing

Post by Admau1 » Wed Jan 15 2020 11:45

Hi all , does anyone use lure rods for short range baitfishing ? For example, 8'-9' rods with 100gm + casting weight ?
Would they be suitable for waters such as drains,canals,or even boat fishing ? Using small dead or live baits ?
I assume that once the fish is hooked ,it is no different to having hooked it with a lure ?? :shrug:
I would appreciate your opinions please !!. :thumbs:

I use an 8ft 40-80g lure rod for ledger or drift bait fishing when I’m on the river. Does the job perfectly :thumbs:

salmon anglers use spinning rods on occasion for worm and prawn tatics,with no problem,so small deadbaits should be ok,Ecky

I often use lure rods for deadbaiting.
I have a four piece 20-80g lure rod which I use when cycling to my swim.
And a couple.of 9fters which serve both purposes.

I user a 10ft 20-60g Fox spinning rod for roving with both lures and deadbaits etc had no issues after over 10yrs of use. I have used shorter rods but lack of length has been an issue on some waters due to bank side tree et

Caught my PB bait fishing with a Brundal Angling RT4. Also used it in tight swims for Barbel and a bit of carp stalking.

I've regularly used two 7ft 10-30g lure rods to fish small deadbaits (Bleak) under small floats on the canals for Zander.

The kids especially find them easier to handle. :thumbs:
