I'd been told by several people to bring a light spinning rod and a heavy plug rod
to fish the channels and coral heads.
However, at one point Sam Snead sauntered over with his plug rod
, telling us one joke after another, keeping us in stitches and somewhat distracted as we competed to see who could catch the most fish (Snead did).
A plug rod
rigged with at least 200 yards of 15-pound monofilament and a wire leader will usually handle any shark you will see.
Six- to 8-pound spinning rods or a 12-pound plug rod
If fly fishing ain't your air bladder, try a short spin or plug rod
with any of a number of your favorite lures, only smaller.
