great middle of the road rod
October 7, 2015
Bought this rod for my wife, paired with a shimano stradic 3000fj. Great combo for jetty and bay fishing. Tidemaster seem to be good choice rod for under $200. Never have issues with St Croix rods and think they offer a dramatic selection for anything you're fishing for.
Proslight, cast well

My go to rod
September 28, 2015
I love this rod. It's my workhorse,I have it paired up with a VS VM150 loaded with 30lb braid. I have landed Fluke to 9lbs with it and it has the backbone to stand up much larger fish....hopefully it sees some striper action soon.
ProsAmerican made Fast tip Comfortable grip
ConsNone

Good plugging rod
August 30, 2015
Bought TIS70HF for plugging sod banks for stripers and bluefish. No stripers yet but a few nice bluefish. It Replaced a similar older Premier rod that was stolen. This rod casts 3/4 to 1.5 oz lures and has good backbone for handling bigger fish. It has heavier action and is much stiffer than the new premier 7' hevy action. I am very happy with the tidemaster.
ProsExcellent action for casting and retrieving 1-1 1/2 oz plugs (sp Minnow, 5 1/2" rapala magnum). Stiff and strong to handle larger blues and bass. Butt and fore grip length are perfect. Reasonable price.
ConsI prefer the heavy single footed guides on the older Premier rod I had that had similar heavy action.

Very good for catching Blue Fish and Sea Bass, very light and powerful. I use it with a Shimano Stella 5000 and it matches well. I like this rod a lot.

Best. Rod. Ever.
April 26, 2015
Very strong, light and it's an awesome rod. I have caught trophy stripers, monster blues and fluke with this rod. Paired with a Penn SSV4500 and loaded with 20b braid and this combo will catch anything you encounter.

St Croix Tidemasters are the best in the business for light tackle spinning and trolling along the east coast. I've purchased numerous Tidemaster spinning and conventional rods for use on the Chesapeake, the Inland Waterway in Northern Florida, and off the coast of Delaware, New Jersey and Maryland. Have caught stripers up to 25 pounds, weakfish to 5 pounds, fluke to 4 pounds, red drum to 20 pounds and have even landed multiple 75+ pound cownose rays. I use my seven and eight foot Tidemasters for all light tackle trolling, topwater, jigging and spinning needs. Plus St Croix has an exchange program which is superb and their warranties are the best in the business.

Perfect Inshore Rod
July 13, 2014
I bought this rod for both jigging for fluke and throwing poppers at stripers off the boat and under bridges. It has performed great, love the grip, weight, and feel of this rod!
ConsThis is my second St. Croix I bought this summer. Makes me wanna get rid of my other brands and buy more St. Croix's.
By Chris

Love this rod!
December 26, 2013
I have this rod paired up with a quantum-cabo spinning reel (size 40) and the pair works great. The rod is super light weight and has a great backbone. Battling fish with this real is fun. You feel the fight of the fish and have the confidence that the rod can take whatever the fish dishes. I liked it so much I got a second. Strongly recommend!

What guides are on the 7' med heavy tidemaster ? Is it the double or triple guides like on the mojo inshore?

Wanting to purchase a good saltwater spinning rod and reel to do surf fishing from the shore. I like the St. Croix Tidemaster and am not sure between the stradic 4000 or penn battle II 4000 models reels. PLease advise set up you would recommend along with type of line. I am new to the sport of fishing.
For a light shore setup I would recommend a Tidemaster with a Shimano Stradic 5000. It is the same size as the 4000 with just a slightly larger spool. I would put 20lb braid on it.

May 31, 2015
I'd like to fish for barracuda and bluefish and maybe sea bass. What length and action I should chose? Which reel pair? I'll be fishing in ports and rocks up to less than 2 meters.
Paolo, I would recommend the 7ft heavy action tide-master, with a Shimano Stradic FJ 5000, Or a Penn Conflict 4000. Both reels will pair well with the rod and be excellent for the type of fishing you are going to do.

i have a new penn spinfisher v 4500 reel. looking for a rod to pair this with
If you are looking to be primarily casting and fishing with lures, a good rod to pair this reel with would be a Penn Legion Inshore Rod. Either the 7' or 7'6" medium powered rod would balance out well. Take a look at PEN-1007 or PEN-1004. You can copy and paste our TD code into the search bar at the top of our website to find the matching rod and its description.

We fish on the flats in a 19.8 foot skiff for speckled trout and Redfish. We sling a cork and also jig without a cork. We have purchased two Shimano Stradic 4000FJ reels. Which St. Croix rods would you recommend.
Either a 7' medium light to medium or a 7'6" medium light to medium fast action rod would work great for flats fishing.

Looking to get a 6' 6" Tidemaster Inshore Spinning for "all around" use....soft plastics, topwater, suspending jerkbaits. Fast or Moderate action? I'm used to a 6' 6" St. Croix Premier spinning rod (fast action). Not sure how the actions of these rods compare. Thanks.
I use the TIS70MF for the exact application you have mentioned and absolutely love it. They are a great "go-to" rod that can do anything in the back waters.

DAVE HAGER
from BLOOMSBURG PA. asked:
September 5, 2012
I fish from a bridge rt.50 ocean city what tip action would be best mod. or fast
As we get deeper into the fall bigger bass are going to begin to hold around the rt.52 bridge into Ocean City. I would go with the TIS70MHF. This rod has the power to handle fish around structure but an action capable of throwing lighter jig heads and plugs when need be. If you like throwing heavier shad type baits greater than 1oz than the TIS70HF will be the better rod for you though.
