No, a medium power 6 foot rod is way too light for those species. This rod would be good for crappies/walleye/pike/bass.

6ft mediums can be used for a lot of species if you kayak fish. Because the way physics works, kayak fishing allows you to get away with a smaller rod. I have used 6ft medium rods for some monstrous snook in the past, i would never try it on dry land. I watched my nephew wear out a 6ft reef shark on a 7' medium rod. He was able to get it up for release and was able to get a few video clips before it was set free. I have pulled 4ft reefs on a 6ft but the one i use is a custom setup that was made for me just to catch sharks. Biggest shark i have seen from a kayak was a 7ft bull at one of our summer Veteran Trips. It was crazy and we had to use other kayaks to block the area off so it wouldnt flip anyone. We started using outriggers about 2 years ago when i was flipped by a 4ft bull so less risk involved.

For 6$ more, I'd go with this.
https://www.amazon.com/Okuma-ROX-Spinning-Combo-Medium/dp/B00LV00CZG/ref=pd_sbs_200_2?_encoding=UTF8... [amazon.com]

I'm a fan of Okuma fishing gear, so I may be a bit biased.

It does say Youth as a keyword, so question is this isn't for avid adults? or it does not matter? How much is it normally?

Honestly, that doesn't really matter when it comes to small fish breeds like crappie/small bass/feeder trout. If you are a person that is an avid fisherman then maybe not, but just to hang out with friends an/or taking the kids out, this will do the trick. Ignore the "youth" comments. The ones that you would want to avoid would be the batman/barbie ones..HAHA

Side note: From time to time my kids catch more fish then me on those crappy kid poles. while I am using a couple hundred dollar set up. kills me haha

I've seen these for $10 to $15 at Walmart on clearance. So I'd check brickseek to see what the price is instore first.

I sure understand that! If you're kayaking, too, for me the smaller the setup the better. I can get tangled in branches in a hurry with even a 7' rod, and I've taken the reel off of these Dock Demons [walmart.com] to put a decent reel on it. These rods work great because you can bend them double and they still won't break, and they're small enough to keep from tangling in any branches when going in shallow water on a kayak.

Yep! I usually try to stay under 7 foot on my kayaks. 6 .6 is usually my max and I love using the 5.6. I also have the dock demon and small rods like that. I like to take those on the kayak or my float tube.

It is the fisherman, not the equipment. Sure, better equipment makes things easier at times... But fishing is fishing . The fish do not know what you are using. I started fishing with a bamboo pole when I was 4. I have seen people cat big catfish and alligator gar on a cane/bamboo pole.

I personally use mid range to absolute inexpensive gear and never had an issue. Proper setup and usage is what matters.

Happy new year everyone!

Dying to find a decent surfcasting rod, already have the reel from a previous SD. Anyone have any surfcast (northeast) rods to recommend?
