The Best Rod Action For Snook And Redfish


Question- Rod Action from Houseboat Shows

Here is a question that we have actually received more than once so maybe there are more people wondering about this.  Hopefully this answer will help some people looking for a new rod.


"What was the rod action when you were fishing out of the house boat. The rod was a smoke but what was the action ? It seemed you were having way to much fun and I want that too. I have a 30 PT that needs a home.



Hey Chris!  Glad you liked those shows.  You are in luck...Your Quantum 30 is going to fit perfectly on the rod I was using on the houseboat shows.  The rod was a new Quantum Smoke and I really like it.

I chose the Smoke 7 foot 12-20 lb Medium/Heavy action rod for that trip.  I think that is the very best rod action for almost all of the fishing that I do.  The tip is soft enough to make very technical casts and it has enough backbone to rip a big snook out of the bushes. 

Honestly, I could use the 7 foot 12-20 Medium/Heavy action rod for 95% of the fishing that I do in the Florida Keys and Louisiana.

All the best,
