As some of you may have surmised, I like to kayak fish somewhat.

After a hiatus from baitfishing for 16 months, I am returning to the dark side in search of several species I have a rekindled fascination with.


I currently have a 10' Leeda A500 (I think) light multi picker rod. I love this rod and it's my go to rod on the bank. However, I would appreciate something shorter, maybe 7-8' max as kayak space is somewhat limited and when landing fish, a longer rod is a great hindrance due to the acute tip angles required to bring a fish within range.


Any suggestions? Or will I be best served by shortening an existing rod?
