What is the best all around fishing rod for when fishing off a boat for stripers, fluke or weaksRoll? Try and keep it around the $100- $125 range.

One of the St. Croix Tidemasters. I use the TIC70MHF, but the H is a good choice too.

The Ugly Stick Tiger rods are great utility sticks and less than you are looking for. Fast action, sensitive tips for fluke and plenty of backbone. Take 20' stripers with no problem.


At least the panic over the "Fiscal Cliff" proved the "Bush Tax Cuts for the Rich" montra was a load of crap repeated by Liars and ignorant lemmings.

Ugly stick...TIGER....

b2201 or heavy b2202... they are great for a general rod.. the 2201 got a nice sensitive tip.. makes fluking in the ocean nice.. good overall feel 69 bucks J&H 54 bucks Walmart 89 bucks local B&T...

I am getting a couple of ugly stick Tigers .. with the triggers for my abu's....

and am going to try one of them shimano's to set up a butterfly JIGGING rig

real


6cyc merc/1983 Grady 204c overnighter. 1996 6cyc rude.  If they take away my fishing, I will still keep my boat... there is more to it than just fishing. Forever near the water. gl to all.

I have a Shimano Compre cpu-mf70mh that I use for deadsticking fluke when I have to lay the lead on.I feel this rod will handle bass to 25lbs depending how and where you are fishing.I would not want to hook a big bass on it fishing one of the west end bridges with a good running tide.Fishing behind the clam boats I would have no problem using it or fishing the back bays.Right now a have a calcutta 400 on it that I will be replacing with a Tekota 300,the calcutta with be going on my jigging rod.

All good choices for sure. Love the Terramars, Tidemasters and Compre rods.

But my idea? Take that money over to Capt. Neil's shop and see what he can cook up for you, specifically to your needs.

Capt Neil's LI series are a very nice rod for cheap money.

You almost forget that you can get NOT an off the shelf rod for a low price Smile
