I have a 7ft light to medium action rod. Is that sufficient for hali and striper fishing from boat? Also, how heavy should the weights be that im bringing?

Thanks

tchli,

That rod should be fine:

Recommend minimum 20# test line (30# min. for leaders)
Weights - cigar-shaped, 5 - 12 oz.
Hooks - #2, live bait
large 3-way swivels

6-8" from swivel to wieght
Approx. 3-4' lead to hook

Good Luck!

Now go out there and catch a big one. What was listed above is more than enough. The deckhand on the New Huck Fin fishes with a litle 5ft extra light action trout rod :) looks scarry when you see it.

Light Tackle is the way to go!! I use my G Loomis HSR 981C with 12lb P-Line on Potluck boats.
