Q. What type of rod would you recommend to someone?
A. The most versatile rod is a 6.5-foot, medium-action spinning rod. You can throw little crappie jigs on it, live bait for catfish, trout spinners, or most any bass lure. If you are going to start with one rod and fish for multiple species, this is the perfect one.
