I am interested in buying a rod to match my TLD 20 reel. I want to use the rod mostly for trolling plugs for King Mackerel with 20lb mono. I like the Shimano Tallus ring guided trolling rod but am unsure whether I should get the Fuji LR frame guides or the regular Alo guides?... And if 6:6 or 7:0 in length with MH would be my best option ?
1 Answer
The Shimano TLC70HSBBLA Tallus Trolling Slick Butt Ring Guided Rod would be the best fit fishing for king mackerel with 20 lb mono.
