Hey guys. Looking to get a quality spinning rod setup for salmon. I want a 2 piece rod to fish 15 pound test. Im looking at the St Croix Wild River WS86MHF2 Spinning 8'6" MH Fast 2 piece 8 - 17 pound test 3/8 - 11/4 ounce lure weight, 6.7 ounce rod weight $ 150.
What other rods are people using. Ill be fishing from a drift boat on the deshka and similar stuff.
Now for the reel. I dont want anything too large and it needs a decent drag thats not going to have to get rebuilt every year.
Also If i wanted to build a cheaper setup for friends to use since i usually have to outfit them as well what rod and reel would you use?
thanks a ton guys vance
