I keep 3 of these rods rigged up. On 2 of them, I use Penn 285 reels with 80# braided line. I use this set-up for baiting live shad for large stripers and catfish. On the third rod, I use a Daiwa 3RM millionaire with 50# braided line for jigging 2 ounce slab spoons and diamond jigs.

I use Shimano Torium 20s as well as Daiwa Saltists 35s and 40s. These rods pair up great with high speed reels in the 15-25 ounce range.

These rods are very versatile so I have several different reels on them - depending on the type of fishing I am doing. For albacore I use Tyrnos 10, for LingCod a Torium 16 and for Halibut a Diawa Seaborg 750. If we had Wahoo here I would probably use a Tyrnos 20...

Ugly Stik Tiger rods are versatile rods that can be used with most baitcasting reel, which are better for bottom fishing and jigging. Reels with a closed face and line guide are used for working lighter lures and baits. Open-face reels without a line guide work better for casting or jigging because the line can be let out and retrieved more quickly. I hope this helps. Thanks

Yes it works very well for shark fishing. I've caught sharks up to 4ft and waiting for bigger. I believe this rod would handle anything that I'm big enough to hang on to, and probably more then the strength I would have to land it by myself. You put a reel on it with 30lbs of drag and fight one free handed for 20-30 minutes and you'll see what I'm talking about!

Yes this rod can be used for shark fishing but I've caught sharks on all types and weight rods. To me it's more about how you handle the fish after it's on than the rod and reel.
