The longer rods give better distance and control but for long sessions a shorter 8-10 footer would be better. The Mike Ladle range will be in your price band so give Veals tackle a look or Alderney angling will point you in the right direction.

Try using 50lb fluorescent orange line for mullet and see how many you catch ! :) Some species can be very line shy in clear water, bass and mullet in particular . Others species will take a bait tied to baler twine . In dirty water or at night or a competitive shoal feeding line colour is less impo...

The mottled varnish effect was often used on whole cane sections of rods. On some of the cheaper rods only the tip section was split cane and Allcocks did make a lot of rods for the coarse fisher.
Not likely to be in the Hardy end of the price range.

[quote="pilotfisher"]Hi, i have a cathedrel

The only downside is if it's a bit choppy it does slam quite a bit and can get quite uncomfortable.

As in you need new knees and have to see a dentist to have all your fillings put back in. :D

There is no doubt that large bass fill up on 50p sized hardback crabs but they do not seem to work as bait.
A locally abundant fish livebait would be better. :-O :D

Chunks of fish are sometimes used for spurdog and tope and a bait with the bones still in is more crab resistant.
The main problem with fish chunks is that they can spin like propellers in the tide or when cast any distance.

I think the stiffer rods are better for fishing plugs and lures where the movement of the rod gives the swimming action. If you try do do the same with a soft through action rod the action is cushioned by the rod and does not reach the lure (the yanks call them jerkbaits for obvious reasons).

I shared in a haul of 70+ plaice over 2lb catching three over 4lb myself :D .
The mussel bed was later wiped out by starfish and the plaice disappeared.
Nature sometimes removes concentrations of fish and their food before humans do.
