    Hi Everybody

    my family and I are moving to Jakarta on a temporarily basis(4-5years) and since I am an avid angler I want to get myself a rod and reel suitable for the fish in Indonesian waters.
    I wont be goin out with professional charters all too much (i guess the only ones in Indonesia are on Bali and Komodo?) but will have a lot of opportunities on short trips around the country by asking local fisherman to take me around.
    What I am looking for is a rod which can handle stickbaits and small to medium sized poppers, nothing overpowered for trophy fish (PE 8-10) more like a all round typ of rod which still is fun to fish with if the specimen are not as big but not without a chance if a big one comes along.
    Any recommendations for a versatile PE 5-6 Stickbait / Popping Rod?
    Species targeted: GT´s , Tuna... Looking for top quality- rather build my arsenal slowly but have something fun to hold on to.
    In terms of reels I am split between the Saltiga 20 and Stella 20 in size 14000
    I have a Jigging setup in PE5 which will do for now

    Hope to get some help from you guys.

    Check out Kaiser El Toro rods at the Kaiser pro shop if you can get to Singapore
    I use the GT 100 and Kaiser light cast.

    Bone gear is another good option
