I am to. Planning on trying from a pier for the first time ever. Done it from a boat all my life( not to long). I got one rod with a 320gti and a penn slammer and i ordered a penn 4700ss and am deciding the rod. Cobiarunner you think storms will work for sightcasting?
The Max. amt of lead Ive thrown was about 6oz. and it handled it pretty good,no backlashes just yet, but I have it spooled with 40lb mono. right now, plan on putting some 30lb. High Seas Quatro on it, but all-n-all it's well worth the $$$$$!
P.S. the Z-30 would be perfect for Spadefish, and AJ'S Out at the Light Tower
cobia fishing sounds very fun and interesting to me, however, i have never tried it. and i dont know weather to use my heavy rod or my medium rod...if someone could give me any helpful tips it would be deaply apperciated!!!
You could use whatever rod you are comfortable with. If you are new to it maybe a heavy one. They do fight different then most fish because they are NUTS! I have seen people on tv shows taking them on light stuff but that is tv.
grand wave 30 for spade fish is over rated i would go with the z 20. i fish for cobes and all my heavers have grand wave z 30 with 17lb suffix tri. but it dont matter over all they all are good reels and dont count out the slosh 30. james
Z-30 or Z-20(whatever u desire) for spadefish,and whatever else grabs your bait, jig, etc. when fishing around big structures such as the light tower!!.
P.S. I have hooked into spades with the Slosh 30 that I couldn't even stop. A spadefish is a very muscular, stout fish with bruit strength, and a love for plyons, pilings, and other abrasion wearing structure; when hooked!!
