I am planning to start kayak fishing from pasir ris imminently and am looking to buy a 6 to 7ft rod that is lightweight and suitable kayak fishing (my other rods are too long).
Do you think a 6'6 spinning rod rated up to 17lb line and 18g casting (lure) weight would be too soft-action for bait fishing for good sized fish at depth, from a kayak? Do you guys tend to use proper boat rods for bait fishing from kayaks or are such spinning rods tough enough?
The main reason I want a light rod is that I also want to float fish close to land as well as lure fish.
In short, will a good, light spinning rod do everything I need from a kayak?
Thank you very much in advance for any responses.
