Default question on rods

What type of rods do you guys prefer for fishing small live baits like LY's and shrimp? I've been using medium weight 6'6" Falcon lowriders. It seems like a 7' medium rod with a very fast tip would work better, especially with LY's. I don't seem to be able to get much distance without casting them off the hook.

Also, what is the best way to hook an LY?

Default RE: question on rods

Look for a rod that is extra fast with a line rating of 4-10 or 6-15 pound test. Seven to seven and a half foot is a good length.Shimano makes some beautiful rods that will throw a shrimp or an alewive. If you can afford it get the shimano crucial with the split grips. If that is out of your budget you can get a Clarus or a Compre. Hook the alewive thru his nostrils just in front of his eye. You can hook them in the belly so they swim differently [more likely to get hit]but you will sling them off a little more.
