Matching Your Fishing Rod, Lure, and Line

Part of the Fishing For Dummies Cheat Sheet

Your fishing rod has a limit to how much weight it can lift and cast effectively. This is called the “power” of the rod. Anglers can use this chart as a guide to match up the right rod, lure weight, and line size for the right balance.

Rod Power Lure Weight Line Size
Ultralight 1–4 lb test 1/64–1/16 oz
Light 4–8 lb test 1/16–1/4 oz
Medium Light 6–10 lb test 1/4–1/2 oz
Medium 8–12 lb test 1/2–1 oz
Medium Heavy 12–25 lb test 1–4 oz
Heavy 20–40 lb test 4–8 oz
Extra Heavy 25 lb test and above 8 oz and above
