Subject: Good rod for a cabo 40

Message: I have a Quantum Cabo 40 that i need a rod for. what would be a good rod for me to match my cabo with? i fish inshore and mostly target reds and snooks. I want a rod that i can sight cast the flats as well as pitch the mangroves or dock fish and not get worked by the occasional overslot red, snook, or grouper. Thanks for the advice, love what you guys do! Would love to come fish with y'all.

Answer:

Hobson,

Thanks for the question. 

You have an awesome reel in the Quantum Cabo 40.  I have used it to catch just about everything that I fish for inshore and lots of offshore species as well.

My favorite rod is a 7 foot, Medium/Heavy action for lines 12-20 lb.  This rod action is by far my favorite.  I use it as my go to rod for Redfish, Bonefish, Permit, Snook, Trout, small to medium tarpon and jack crevalles.  I can throw lures of various sizes comfortably and accurately while having enough backbone to set the hook and fight a large fish.

I like that rod paired to a Quantum Cabo 40 with 20 pound Vicious braid for 90% of my fishing.

I hope that helps!  Send us a picture of the big fish you catch!
