Choosing a Snapper Rod

Most Snapper fishos recommend a good strong rod with a fast taper around 7 foot in length. At 7 foot the rod is perfectly suited to offshore boat fishing, fast action of these rods allow the angler to feel the slightest bite and the power of the strong backbone give the lift required to set the hooks and control the fight, these are the best rods for snapper fishing. The rods in this guide will suit this type of fishing perfectly regardless of the price. These Snapper rods also pair perfectly with a medium spinning reel size between 4000 and 5500, with a suggest braid class from 5kg to 12.5kg.
