Hi guys, I'm in the market for a new snook rod. I fish from land, mostly at inlets in south florida. I throw flair hawks, spooltek, swimbaits, and big plugs up to 2.5 oz. I'm looking for an 8' rod with backbone to turn big fish, but, if possible, a somewhat soft tip to throw some live baits. My budget is $300 and this rod will be paired with a Shimano Sustain 6000 FG. Thanks in advance.
