Hi guys,

I have a Calcutta 400b sitting around. I had a 8-15kg 'impoundment barra' rod for it (which sadly broke). I want to use this for the reefs of Cairns to pull up some trout. What kind of rod should I get? I don't need specific rods, just want action and line class.

Thanks all and tight lines!

For bait fishing, I use a 30 year old Ugly Stik BWS 1101, this is a medium taper and just under 2 metres long and use 10 to 20 kg line on it. I also use this type of outfit for jigging them in water deeper then 8 metres.

For shallow reef lure fishing, I use a barra rod with a medium / fast taper and 9 to 12 kg line.
