    Which rod would you recommend to fish lead heads with squid for WSB? It will be matched with a Tern 400, Torium 16HGA, Tesoro 10 or similar size reel. Thanks in advance.

    No.

    It's more personal preference.

    And if you get the chance for a PB ghost, you won't even think about the rod.....just the adrenaline shakey hands once it's in the boat.

    I usually use a Seeker G270H-8 but also have a OC 80JL or Wade Seastar 270H-8.

    If you are looking to match with a Tern definitely take a look at the BV-80M and BV-X76MH. They both have great actions for seabass.

    Also, in my opinion, the Seeker TAC 80 is very good seabass rod. Personally I like the thin diameter and light weight. It was designed specifically for seabass. It can be harder to find, but worth it.

    Thanks Will. I'll see if I can find a TAC 80 to pull on.

    270 8 h is a good setup
    Any 8 ft rod in the 20-40 ib class sould be fine

    I don’t know about you guys, but when I fish I lead head and squid I am using a heavy kelp cutter rig and fishing actively in the deeper cover. 80# spectra and a minimum of 60# flouro. My choice in rod has to have solid pulling power so I use an 800xh Calstar. For clicker fishing on the anchor, I like the 900m. Only time I’d use the lighter rods that are mentioned would be flyline or light egg sinker set ups.
