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
