    I use a heavy 8' ugly stik rod. an abu garcia cardinal spinning reel( pretty reliable and holds some good line) i also use 30 pound stren with a 25 pound-14 inch, leader (in case of snags.) and anywhere from 2-5 oz no roll sinkers depending on size of bait/current. with 8/0 gamakatsu octopus hooks

    I have a lot of different setups, but my preference is a 9' catmaxx or American Spirit Night Stick, Abu Garcia 6500c3, 25LB big game. Everything else changes depending on situations. 1/4oz to 8oz egg or no-rolls, 1 to 3 foot leader, 1/0 to 10/0 khale hooks, slip floats soemtimes, cigar floats sometimes. It all really just depends on the situation.
