I had the chance to fish this weekend and manage to land about 30
between me and my fishing partner. They were mostly between 1-1.5kg
with only a couple of 2kg ones. I believe we now have some of the best
(cobra) snakehead Florida.

No need to bring gear unless you want to. I have a small tackle shop
worth of gear. Both baitcasting and spinning

I have both a spinning outfit and baitcasting outfit with the steez.
Steez 103 on the 6'8" MH Steez rod
and
Steez 2500 on the Steez 6'10" rod
Love them both. The baitcaster is my main snakehead rod. It is so
light that you don't want to put it down.

I am looking to also pick up the Steez 100 with the 7.1-1 high speed
retrieve.
Daiwa is also coming out with Zillion series rods. They look very nice.
I am on their guide program and they are a great company.

Scott,

Going off topic here but how would you rate budget baitcasters such as the Daiwa Exceler 100H and Abu Garcia Black Max? I am new to baitcasters and have two of the former and Indian Angler is/was considering getting the latter as his first experimental low profile baitcasting reel but some of the reviews concerning the Black Max on Cabelas aren't too good. If you have hands-on experience of either or both reels, I'd like to know what you think of them.

My first Exceler was spooled with 15 lbs Berkley Trilene Big Game and I have not had a problem with that. I received the second Exceler yesterday and have filled it with 20lbs Sufix Performance Braid. Would this be too thin a line and are there any problems I should be aware of when using lower diameter braids?

Thanks.

Rustam

The Exceler line is hard to beat for the money. I have about 5 spinning
reels in that line. It is what I have recommended for people who want
a good bang for their money. You should have no problem with 20#
braid, I have 15# power pro on my Sol and it's fine. The Exceler also
comes in high speed 7.1:1.

Many thanks for the reply.

Whilst I haven't had a problem with mine yet, it is still quite new for me to make a firm recommendation to IA. Hopefully, your reply should decide the matter for him.

Sorry for going off-topic again but would you know of any trigger baitcasting rods with the following specifications:

Length: Between 6 and 7 feet.
Pieces: 2 or 3. Preferably 2.
Power: Ultra Light or Light.
Action: Fast or Moderate Fast.
Casting weight 1/32 to 1/4 oz.
Line rating: 2 to 6 lbs. (prefered) or 2 to 8 lbs.
Price: Would like to keep it under US$70.00. Under $50.00 would be better.

Thanks.

P.S.: It's not for murrel fishing. Would like to use such a Light or Ultra Light set-up for the small catfish and tilapias present in the waters I fish. Unfortunately, I haven't been able to find such a rod as yet.

Daiwa Heartland trout series. These should be in the price range and
come in two piece fast action

No there are confined to a small area in southern florida.
The population is good and very fishable if you know where to look
and how to fish for them.

Sorry about the late reply.
I use Zoom Horny toads and Strike King Ragetail Frogs for soft plastic
baits. I don't know about using plastic worms on the cobra snakehead.
I know that a friend of mine uses senko worms for the northern snakehead
and does ok. Just haven't seen it been effective here on cobra snakehead.
If I'm not throwing a topwater frog, I'm throwing a white and blue spinner
bait.
