I am new to sturgeon fishing also, but I like the uglystick tiger m action rod with a diawa greatlake 47lc reel. This was the first reel that I had with a line counter on it, and I really like it. I feel, I can get my bait back to the same spot the fish are biting in if needed. Or if my father is getting bites at say 80 feet behind the boat and I am at 150 feet behind the boat, I can reel in to where the fish are biting. You would be suprised at how much difference 50 feet makes. This set up also works well in the bay for salmon, sharks, halibut,and ect.

8)that sounds like a great set up. most sturgy guys use ugly stick tigers or custom wrapped, 7 ft is great 30 pound mono or 50 pound braid . I like shimano tld 200 reels or penn310 gti durable long last handles the abuse well. 8)

Not sure what you are asking here. The blank is (to me), the most important part of the rod; it sets the stage for all the things you are looking for with respect to action, power, ratings, and durability. Once that is chosen, the way the rod is wrapped is the next big factor on how it works.

I have a couple of Ugly stick Tigers, and they are good for the job. Bit heavy for some, bit light for others, I also like the penn power stick series, Stomper loves his.

Thanks for your advice T you pretty much hit the head on the nail, I should of been a little more specific. I dont want a heavy rod but not a light so thats why I'm leaning twards a custom as well. Thanks again joe

I agree with the ugly stick tigers. I
have two one is the regualer ugley stick tiger and the other is the ugly stick black tiger . I prefer the black Tiger due to it is lighter and more sesitive.
It all comes down to preferances
Just my 2cents

Dont worry tattoo I'll make you get out for some sturgeon this season lol. I'm collecting roe as we speak for it ;). Levelwind, you know that rod you used when yours broke? I use that one for sturgies a lot. Have landed a ton of them on it hehehe.

I think the 7' Ugly Stick Tiger in medium light (the 12-30lb model) is a nice sturgie rod. Tons of backbone, but still has a nice soft tip. For ~$40 at Wild Sports it's tough to beat.
