I have a new Willie Driftboat 17×54 and plan on being ready to fish winter steelhead.I have quesition about rods for salmon & steelhead.
I plan on using HSR981c for plug & light back boucing.I was thinking about getting some Gloomis HSR1021c for plug fishing for salmon. When using long leaders on plugs or bait&diver I was going to use STR1263c for salmon.
For steelhead fishing I was planing to use HSR9000c for plugs. When side-drifting I was going to use STR1024s in snagy water and was thinking about using G-Loomis STR1162S rods for side-drifting & double as float rod.
Your opinion would be great. Thank You, Mitch H.
Sounds like you pretty much have it all covered! The only thing I think I would change is the STR 1024’s for side-drifting….they’re extremely parabolic. With such a soft tip, your sinkers will be more inclined to fall into the gaps between the rocks and get hung. The 1025 is better…
