    I am a big fan of ultralight setups for bass fishing, what ultralight setup do you use?

    I really like the Quantum Ultra light rods. I like them because the tip of the rod is so sensitive for fishing species like soft biting walleyes to having enough strength to fight the larg Montana bulltrout. I personally use the 6-12 lb test setup and a 6'6'' rod. The 12 lb test could come in handy if you got in some pretty weedy areas. I use mine to fish all acrost the state and I love it, I once caught a 20 lb sheeps head on It, that was a heck of a fight.

      I love the 5'3" Ugly Stick with 12lb. test braid when I'm in the thick stuff trying to pull out lunkers. Your not going to hurt an Ugly Stick no matter how much you have to muscle out a fish. Catching a 6lb. bass on this setup is awesome!!!

        I use about a 5-6 foot rad with 4-6 pound line. for the bait I use a curly tail grub on a snap spinner.

          7'2" Ultralight with 4 pound floro or 6 pound GREEN Trilene if I can find it. For bait, small cranks or a Curly tail grub in Chartruse or white on an 1/8 oz jig.

            Guys, the man said ULTRA light, I use a six foot rod with a fast tip, a browning ice fishing size reel and 1 lb test mono. Favorite lure is a 1/16 or 1/32 oz rooster tail. This setup will catch tons of smallies on shallow summer time rivers and a 3/4 pound fish feels huge, hook into a 2 pounder and you'd swear you have moby dick on the other end of the line.

              Appreciate the feedback from everyone.

              my favorite setup is a spidercast spidermite with 1 or 2lb mono with a 6'6" rod. When you set the hook on a crappie or small bass or even a good sized perch it will bend from tip to tip.

              Again I appreciate the responses

                I have a 5' and a 5'6" one and both work well. I use a Sonoma reel for them.

                    I'm not a big ultralight fan, but i keep a nice uglystick around for hitting crappies from the shore. It's hard to beat the old uglystick.

                        now musky on 8 pound line out of a little bait casting reel on a MH rod is a trip and a half.

                          I use Japanese style ISO 6'6", 2-6lbs rod with no foam or cock grip. 4lbs Maxima dark brown mono on Ecooda Blackhawks 2500 but the reel size as the same as Daiwa 1500. Awesome reel. Very smooth and no line twist. The rod tip is fine. But the excitement is the strike. It felt like a big fish hit you. I love this rod. My lures is always Johnson Bettle Spin jig only 1/16 Oz but in Flour Chartereus colour. Other size or colour doesn't work for me.
                          Have hit more than 100 young 12" snakeheads 4 times in 2 1/2 hrs. Rapala,Storm and Duell 1 1)2" minnows, I got ZERO strike. Snakeheads are good fighters.
                          If I go for big fish, I can get only a few
