Power and Sensitivity This is an excellent choice for bait fishing for large stripers, carp, and catfish. It casts well with heavy line and sinkers and has the sensitive tip to detect bites with the backbone to haul them in. It has a comfortable foam non-slip handle with an excellent and strong reel seat with double footed guides. An excellent value for the price and quality. December 14, 2007
Can't beat this rod This is the most well rounded fishing rod I've ever used! I can use it for stripers and bluefish in the inlet or take to the surf and catch sharks with no problem at all. Pair it up with heavy braid and there's no fish you can't reel in with this rod. June 2, 2010
Bigwater 15' spinning Beast of a rod.If you're lookin for a rod to really get it out there,this is the one.I've never had a problem with any of the bigwater uglies.I've owned a dozen or so.They hold up and get the job done effectively and reasonably.I like bigwater uglys for all my flathead fishing.I feel unless you're going to go with a full blown custom,the bigwater is the tool for the job.I,m usually casting 6-12 oz plus bait,they handle the job perfectly. April 11, 2013
Another great Ugly Stick The best all purpose rod on the market just got bigger, on the boat it had no problem pulling cranky fish off the bottom, surf fishing is what I use it for the most, very subtle for the smaller fish and my 30 yr fishing buddy and I just laugh when we cast it ' cause it goes so far. We now have 5 Ugly Sticks between us, Big Water should be all you need July 6, 2010

It really depends on the way you are fishing. The longer rod will assist you in longer casts.

A: 
It would be a perfect match. Load the Penn Fierce up with some 20 lbs PowerPro Super 8 Slick braided line. Then use 25lbs Seaguar fluorocarbon as your leader. You will have a great set up.

inshore/surf fishing

Details: 
I'm a big fan of ugly stiks and fish mostly freshwater but am looking to purchase a saltwater set up. ill be doing mostly surf fishing and fishing from other places along the shore. Just wondering if anyone has any suggestions about this rod and if it fits my needs for what im looking for, also what length do you think would be best. I'm also looking to get a solid reel and was wondering if anyone had any suggestions on one that would match up good for this pole and also the fishing ill be doing not really trying to break the bank on this setup though, so something that is inexpensive. Thanks

I dont know about the reel but I just bought the 9-2" Ugly Stik medium-heavy for the surf. I can easily throw 3-4oz lures about 150 feet. It is 2-piece, easy fit in the car. Im using an old spinning reel wit 20 lb test line.
Im happy with it.

I am a big fan off the Inshore Select Rods by Ugly Stik....I own 7 foot med and 7 foot 6 med. heavy. I also like Shimano reels...most all of them can be used in saltwater. As with ANY saltwater fishin it is always best to rinse of all your equipement with freshwater..for the money the Shimano Sienna 2500 or 3000 would be a good start.

A: 
I use those rods a lot in salt water. They're very good rods for the $$, but if you'll be doing a lot of casting I recommend the one piece rod.
It depends on what you mean by "inexpensive". For a real good quality, nice looking reel for that rod that will last a long time, resist corrosion well, cast well with mono or braid, that has a good drag & cost less than $100.00 I recommend a Penn Sargus 5000 or 6000. Any reel cheaper than $80-$100 you won't be happy with for very long, it'll give you problems.
My favorite line for the past 10 yrs is Power Pro braided line, but be careful, it can cut you bad it you try to hold it tight & it slides through your hand.
