Fishing Rod & Reel Recommendations for Muskie

Rod Length

You can use a shorter rod, especially for jigging, however, a longer rod in the 7 to 8 foot range has its perks.  They are better for making longer casts and for doing a figure 8 when needed.

Rod Strength

Go with a heavy rod or you will most likely miss a big fish at some point.
