Tackle big fish like catfish, striper, and largemouth bass. These Bass Pro Shops® Power Plus™ Trophy Class Spinning Rods have plenty of backbone and muscle, yet without large diameters and weight. The secret is in the unidirectional fiberglass construction that eliminates the layering normally found in fiberglass rods. This process also adds flexibility, eliminating premature breakage and stress on the wrist. Features an extended EVA foam handle, for extra power and fighting leverage, that easily fits in rod holders, heavy-duty double foot aluminum oxide guides, hook keeper for pre-rigging and sensitive graphite reel seat.

I used it for casting to Northern Pike and it has done well.

I also have caught walleye trolling with it and a Dipsy, Snubber, Big Jon setup. Haven't used a planer or downrigger..

Once the fish is hooked the rod will handle it no problem. I don't know what weight lures you throw, but I doubt you'll get much distance lighter than 3/4 oz.
Trolling, yes.

Yes, but you may find the butt grip to be too short and therefore not provide enough support under your elbow.

answer 1
Will stand up to the kind of rod abuse that a 12 year old dishes out.

That said it is heavier than high modulus graphite rods so if casting artificial lures for hours there will be arm fatigue sooner than others.

Yes. It's tough and the longest model is only 7'6". It won't throw light stuff, though. So, keep that in mind

I would say a Ugly Stik regular or Ugly Stik Lite, in about 5 1/2 ft. They are very reasonably priced and you can't kill them.
Best idea would be to go to a Bass Pro store and feel them. You don't want to over-rod a youngster, but with this type rod they will be able to use it for a good while as they grow.

This rod is a heavy duty rod, not necessarly a heavy rod. Most 12 year olds would be able to handle this rod.

Question

Recommended reel size.

Any suggestions for a low budget reel for 7'6" rod? I'm not sure how to size a reel to rod. I will be using it as a musky rod but not very often so I don't want to dump a ton of money in a setup until I can get more use out of it.

Typically mount a reel you think is about the right size and grasp the rod from just forward of the reel to the handle/rod junction. Somewhere in this couple of inches the rod should balance. too heavy a reel or too much rod will lever it one way or the other. Don't buy the cheapest one you can find in any brand. Shimano, Diawa and Sheakespeare have some good middle of the road lines

For most musky fisherman they will choose to use baitcaster style fishing reels (similar to bass fisherman). Baitcasters are a classic build for casting lots of lures, and work well with the many different lure retrieval styles that musky fishing incurs. which you would use a casting/trigger rod with a baitcast reel for Musky Fishing. However, you might try the Okuma Epixor Bait Feeder Spinning Reel SKU: 1521601. Heavy duty spinning reels are OK if you plan to use monofilament line.

Thank you!
