I just bought a st croix avid 9' 6" medium, fast action for steelie fishin this year and man I love it. But I wondered if it is enough rod for the fall salmon run?
I would have to disagree...I have used my Wild river 9' light action for years on salmon and it is still working wonders...Now that I have said that it will probably break this fall...:lol:chibear54 said:i have the same rod, i love it for steelhead, but doesn't really have enough back bone for a large salmon.
And don't forget the stink they have! You know, that smell. Nothing in the world smells like a king.:fish: :fish: :corkysm55thousandcasts said:Salmon are a different beast when it comes to rods...just when you think you've got a rod that turns them into whimpering puppies, you get a king on steroids that snaps your stick into about five pieces! God, I love those fish!!!
