I am starting my search into upgrading my rods. The articles I have read seem to favor 7ft rods. Just looking for some suggestions from those of you who really get a chance to fish a lot. Also what action do you use such as med, med/heavy and what test line. I`ve just been yak fishing on and off over the last few years but really want to get more serious and involved. I would really appreciate any input anyone can provide.
