    Thats some great info, thanks for the help. I was giving a old MH 7ft rod with a code reel on it, all I have for braid is 65 lb to put on it.

      Fishing close cover 5'6"-6' med., open water 6'6"-7'med- medheavy fast action. Line 12-15# test mono, 20# test works well if the grass is high because its bouyant and helps keep the trap up without having to have a long rod or cranking at moc 10. you may chose braid but find trap fishing not necessary unless the grass is real heavy, with that I chose another bait because there's nothing worse than cleaning grass off after each cast.

        I use 7'6" MH with 50lbs braid for traps and it seems to work pretty good for me.

          I use a 7'6 heavy BPS bionic blade and a BPS tourney series reel. It's a great all around rod for everything. It has a fast tip so it'll chunk the heck out of a trap.

            Other than the proper rod length/action and heavy braid there is one more piece of the puzzle. A FLOATING TRAP.

                    Don't forget, and I'll regret this, the suspending trap. You can buy them or take a floater and add suspend strips.....great as a jerkbait and has a profile difference they are not used to....

                      Well I have thrown floating traps around dead fall and have had lots of success doing so.
