Hello,
I’m looking for an inexpensive spinning rod for my 10000 Saragosa. I would like to use the same rod for jigging and popping. I’m fishing for yellowfin and small bluefin, most fish under 60 lbs.
Any reccomendations? Id like to keep it under 150 if possible and anything under that would be great.

Yup, that's inexpensive.

I would suggest looking for a used rod rather than finding a new rod for that.

If you're going to use it for jigging and popping equally I'd error on the popping side. Maybe a decent boat rod.
Used Star paraflex maybe?

If it's really worth it I can spend more, I'd just rather not.

Most jigging rods are less than 6ft but can get away with 6'6. Length is not ideal for popping and jigging rods aren't that great for casting. I think you need to separate rods for this type of fishing. Buy used to get to your budget.

Penn Rampage Jigging Spinning Fishing Rod
6'4" med heavy
About $80

I've taken some nice fish with this rod. I do like my fancy rods better but there is no question that the Penn rod works good. Pair it with a 10K Saragosa and it can be a good starter setup. It won't throw near as far as a 7'6" or 8' popping rod but at 6'4" it does ok. It's fine for jigging.

The Tallus Bluewater is a good rod in its price range. Pulled 3 yellowfin in Panama, the third on 185+lbs without any problem.

Since you have a nice reel, I would try to match it with a nice rod. I like the Shimano Tallus Blue Water $169 and I’ve been thinking of getting the Penn CARBWII4080S76 Carnage rod. It’s 7’6” made for popping $199. Best wishes.

I think I'm gonna get the tallus in the 6 foot 9. Should I go with a medium heavy or medium for the 10000? Running 50 lb braid

Really would depend on the popping you're wanting to do. How much will you be throwing?
As far as fitting the reel it I think the MH would be a better fit.

$145 i use these personally for jigging/ chunking and casting. the 5'6" length is great on boats as its not as unwieldy as longer rods, and i can typically cast a unweighted 7" popper about 150' + easy' can see and buy at reelhookedhawaii.com
or email me direct at [email protected] if you have any questions.
and while your there check out some of our new custom made lures, that feature real hand laid gold leaf eyes. under the lures/bahama/reel hooked tab

A thought... If you are looking to spend around 150, why not get two used sticks and switch the reel?

Potentially an Ugly Stick Tiger or Star jigging rod for ~$80 (probably could find a deal) and unsure about the popping stuff (don't do much of it).

I do agree with some other members about having a nice reel and wanting a nice rod. Thought here is if you are doing it occasionally see if you like it and then upgrade accordingly.
