Can anyone recommend a blank that I can use with light line (or small diameter) and vertical jig 1-3 oz. spoons for Lake Trout? The great majority of the time, I will be using 1-2 oz. spoons, so I am looking for something on the lighter side.
I met someone from Lamiglas at a custom rod building show and he recommended the IMC 784 6’6”. I recently read an article in Fish Alaska magazine where the author stated that John Posey ("head honcho from Lamiglas") recommended the Tri-Flex Graphite BL6620C for vertically jigging cod.
I like the idea of using the same rod for the lighter spoons in Canada that can also handle 3 oz. but wondering if I really need two different rods. I can jig a 1-2 oz. spoon at 80 feet on a Canadian lake, no problem. This is really what I want the rod for.
