Barramundi rods

The Venom range of rods includes some barramundi models

Most people use baitcaster (overhead) equipment to catch barramundi. Powerful light graphite rods capable of handling 10kg line are the norm. The rods are normally of average length so they can be easily handled in a boat, and can work as a casting and trolling rod.

With spinning reels, lighter line is usually employed to cast ultralight lures, so the rods are lighter, and often a little longer than those used with baitcasters.
