If I hit wood, the bait caster explodes! Haha. So I reverted back to a medium spinning rod and a Senko to avoid backlashes.


What length rod are you using for skipping? A 6ft 8in. bait caster is what I skip best with. I haven't tried skipping with spinning gear yet.

I’m not 100% sure. I know it was one of my Lowrider rods. The “ShakyHead” rod. I think it’s a 6’10” medium/fast.
I normally skip docks with one of my Lizard Draggers. Depending on the lake, I will use the Diawa with 17lb InvisX, the Chronarch DC with 12lb InvisX, or the Lews reel with 50lb braid.
