    I have a new Abu Garcia Ambassadeur Tournament Grade Rod rated 8-20lb test line 1/2-3/4 oz weights I am wondering will it work for Channels and Small Blues? I was going to mount my Ambassadeur 6000 on it.

    Charles you can give her a whirl and see.

    I am sure it will pull them in, but the ratings seem low for the type of fishing you will be doing.

    You will probably use heavier bait than the rod is rated at, then add on your terminal tackle, you quickly exceed the rated limits.

    How much did this fishing rod set you back?

    I was going to use the rod for bass fishing. It cost $27 bucks I use 1/2 oz to 3/4 oz bank sinkers using a three way rig.
