I surf fish with the long rods and it's a result of many hours of practicing with the right equipment.

I usually fish with a 11'6" or 12 foot rod.

I have hooked cobia on both and really had no problems landing the fish.

My close in cobia rod is a 9 foot custom rod with an old Mitchell 402 reel. I can usually spot cobia at distances where I can drop a cobia jig right on its nose.

I'm tempted to buy a AFAW blank and put Lowrider guides on it. You can rech 150+ yards with most any good setup. All you really need is the ability to reach the first bar. When I shark fished, I use a Breakaway with a magged Penn Squidder. Plenty of guts to put a hurt on one.

I fish for Pompano mostly, but am armed for a biggie if it comes by.

Don't get me started talking about surf fishing and the long rods. I am addicted to surf fishing. C2
