I'm think of going back to fishing in the new year and specifically lure fishing for preditors in the sea and rivers.

Any recomendations for a decent lure rod which i'll hopefully be using for pike in the river and bass in the sea.

I'll be looking to pair it with a low profile multiplyer.

I have a couple of as new trolling/spinning rods bought for that purpose.I have never used them nor put a reel on them.

Must have had them nearly twenty years.

some pics of  them attached if of any interest.

Abu Garcia graphite composite series 500 8'-00" medium action 10-30g.

Abu Garcia Maxxar graphite 8'-6" tip action 15-70g.

Both have original cloth bags.

I've got an Ugly Stick nine foot lure rod that is ideal for that sort of thing. The rings and fittings are salt water proof and whilst it is very powerful it is also very sensitive. I've had 25lb wels catfish out of the river on spinners and also has 2lb and 3lb bass and coalies out of the sea from a kayak. The way these rods are made means that you get plenty of feel with smaller fish but it will bend double (literally) if you hook a good one. Not too expensive either.
