    What would be a good inshore rod rated form 15-30 or 40 with a good price range around 100$ . Something like the okuma swimbait rods?

    Thanks

    I would buy an ugly stick. Put a small penn spinner on it. Or a larger model ugly stick with a larger model penn jig master. Good deal and the rods guaranteed.

    Jordan, check out the new Okuma Cedros Coastal rods. They come in sizes from 7'0" through 8'6" and have a cool ALPS machined aluminum trigger reel seat. Nothing like it on the market. Check out the Okuma website, there is a PDF of the new catalog.

    Shimano crucial rod and a Diawa coastal inshore special is the hot stick. I have a few. The inshore special casts much better and is much lighter than the Shimano Corvalus CVL200 that would seem to make good suit.

    I also have a CVL400 on a Shimano unpronounceable, and the Diawa reel on the Shimano rod is the hot ticket. By the way, these setups are what I use on my kayak or when I get invited to go out on private boats with my friends. These poles are much too fragile for the cattle boat brigade.

    For that style of fishing, use a Callstar or a Seeker and a Newell. You can buy a blank and a handful of chrome plated guides, thread and flex coat for under a 100 bucks and build it yourself or have one built for $200ish. Nothing like hooking up on a rod you built yourself. Don't worry about a diamond wrap or a gap in the wrap, that kind of crap is for the person fishing next to you but not the fish about to eat your well presented bait.

    Tight lines my friend.
