Beach fishing off Jetty

17 June 2013 - 10:21 AM

I am looking for a rod blank that is good for fishing in waist deep water next to or on a jetty wall. Target fish is trout, red drum and flounder. Since I am driving to the coast to fish the rod needs to be at least two piece to fit into the car.
Ideal length would be between 7 and and 7' 6". The lure of prefrence is a bucktail 3/8 to 3/4 tipped with a paddle tail soft bait. My reel would be either a 4000 or 5000 Stradic. I would like to stick in around 10 pound class line either mono or probably braid.

Any suggestions? I have looked at St Croix (2SW70MLF3, 2SW76MF3), but it is 3 piece and I worry about the longevity. I also loked at Rainshadow (IP903F, IP904F), just not sure about the mod/fast action and how good they are.
