Rod Recommmendations

 Hi All,

Chasing rod recommendation for off shore bottom bouncing. I regularly fish up to 100 metres which sometimes means that 2 pound sinkers are needed to hold bottom. Will be paired with aTalica 12 spooled with 50 pound braid. What do recommend ?

 what sort of $ are you looking at spending?

I had a wilson venom for this type of fishing.


Money doesn't buy happiness but it pays for my fishing so ...I may be wrong there.

Was thinking maybe up to $ 400-500 if need be. Was thinking Wilson but having trouble finding someone who stocks a reasonable selection, can you tell me who stocks them around Perth ?

What model Venom where you using ?

 Deep Jig Overhead with a Shimano Talica 16 has been a good bottom bashing set up for me, bought from Whiteys in Bunbury, give the boys a call and see what they can do for ya.

on a jigging master ocean god  (red coloured) rod. It is my go to big fish set up for here and the n/w. Absolute weapon..

I think it may be hard to find and the model name may have changed to ocean devil.  Highly recommend

Thanks for the replies, I ended up going the Wilson Venom PE 3 to 8.

I found Tackleworld in Mandurah are stockists and they did me a reasonable price.

Now to get out there and christen it !

Good choice, for years I

Good choice, for years I fished with 24-37kg broom stick with a TLD 50 and never realized how hard fishing was. I now use a Wilson Venom 3-8 with a Talica 12, light n easy and will pull any thing of the bottom.
