Looking for a live bait rod for San Diego bluefin and would like to hear from those who are using the Axis 820XH. How does it perform casting baits on a party boat? Is it too stout to use for paddy yellowtail or yellowfin since it looks like the bluefin bite may be over.

    I have a 25N on the 820H 25-60 and a 40N on 820XH 30-80. Mainly use these for jigs but I would think the 820H would be better for what you want to do. Nice tip on those rods.
