Hi i recently purchased an ugly stick 6'0' 2 piece medium action rod with
"6-15 Lb line" written on it.
I have a graphite body ugly spin reel with 6Lb cajun line and another laker 15 lbs line.
What kind of fish can i catch with it? I hope it can handle mahseer upto 20lbs? and which all fresh water fishes it cant handle??
any one with a lill time to spare ??

Hi Rookie.

Elecome to the forum.

I think you're going to be rather undergunned with that rod !

Using will be fun but do make sure that you remove the barbs from any hooks the you use because you are very likely to loose fish with such lite gear and they are to precious to be left to die with a treble hook stapleing their mouths shut if they break your line.

rookie,

if you have a rod rated for 'x' lbs/kgs - gives you a good idea of what reel and line to use, period not what fish you can catch .
Also look for what the max 'casting weight' the rod is rated for.
If you use 20lb line and 2 oz casting weight on this rod, something's gotta give-most times, its the rod.
I have caught a small mahseer on an 8 lb rated uglystik with 8lb reel and line, and a 50g tiddler on a mahseer rod rated for 30lb line ! He liked my bait and no 12 hook... :lol:

So, suggest you cast out with the 8 lb spool, use it to get familiarity with the rod and technique.
However, if it is Mahseer that you are specifically targetting, you will need appropriate equipment.Can send a Mig 29 in an anti armour role, can we? will need A-10 warthogs or the 27's :oops:
