    12 ft. Surf Rods

    A guy my mom works with knows I'm into fishing and was kind enough to give her some tackle he's only used once. I haven't seen them yet, but she gave me the info as to what brands/models they were. Come to find out they are 12ft. surf rods and reels!

    2 Rods: 12ft. Offshore Angler Power Stick (Model PS12S) and a 12 ft. Bass Pro Shop Power Plus Trophy Class, Med. Action
    2 Reels: Daiwa Jupiter-Z 4500 and PENN 7500SS

    We're headed to Mustang Island on Wednesday for a family vaycay, and I've never really used anything that big before. I am looking for advice on what kind of line to put on them. I'm thinking maybe something braided that's in the 20lbs range. I'm not really sure though. I'm in uncharted territory with rods that big. I'm thinking I'll just bait and wait those bad boys.

    Thanks in advance for any help/guidance!

    I have some 10 footers, I would spool up with some 50 lb braid and use a nice heavy mono leader. Use you standard surf weights and rigging. If you put a 4-6oz surf weight on that bad boy, you will be able to cast it a mile haha.

    Definately nothing smaller than 50lb. Get some spider weaights and rig with a 3' leader of 80 to 100lb leader. Large hook and horse mullet. Might get you some cable leader for shearks too!!

    That's kind of what I was thinking. I was doing some reading on another forum about using shock leaders on big sticks like these.

    Any of you guys out there swear by/or against using them?

    Looks like quite the setup if you are targetting sharks. I have seen many people at Bob Hall using a set up like that.
