For inshore or freshwater trolling, you can get by with pretty much any type of reasonably stiff rod. When it comes to offshore fishing, however, your gear will need to be a little more specialized. Heavier and stiffer rods in the 6 ½ to 7 ½ foot range tend to work best if you’re going for big fish.

Why are fishing rods different lengths?
