Guys...I need some help.


I have 5 rods and 4 reels (shopping for a new real for the last rod depending on responses)


I am trying to figure out which rods fit which reels for an all around 5 fold arsenal.

I fish Grapevine 90% of the time and Fork on occasion. I fish for Large mouth almost exclusively. (I have a sand bass/catfish rig that is not a part of this post)

So I need you pro's to help me put the right stuff together. Feel free to explain why you choose which combinations and what lure would be recommended . (for my education)

Until this point I have just grabbed a rod that looked good and had good reviews...(same with reels)

Rods:

1. BPS Johnny Morris Carbon lite 7'(combo- reel below)
2. Shimano Sellus 7"2 Worm/Jig
3. Abu Veritas 1.0 6"6 Medium Heavy
4. Fenwick HMXT 7" Medium Heavy
5. Abu Veritas 2.0 6"9 Medium Heavy

Reels:

A. Johnny Morris 5:4:1
B. BPS Extreme 7:1:1
C. BPS Pro Qual 5:2:1
D. Pro Qual 6:3:1


So you all know my current combo set up is ...

1A
2B
3C
4D
5(has no reel- Debating on another Pro qual)


Thanks in advance

5c - Spinnerbaits and bigger cranks
1a - what action? Maybe light t-rig or weightless
3d/new - top waters, jerk baits
2b - agree with RK (heavier trig, light crig, jigs)
4d/new - similar speed - buzz bait, traps, smaller cranks

I believe that you need a cranking rod and that will come in handy on Grapevine. The cranking rods are typically not med/heavy. You can use your BPS ProQual(5.2:1) for your cranking reel as it is the slowest retrieve you own. It doesn't have to be an expensive rod, but you will most likely need a new rod for that. Try and get a fast tip to throw that crank as far as you can.
