Here you will need all the power your rod can give you. Teamed with the 6:3 to 1 reel for a little extra power you will be able to set the hook and skip the fish across the mat or pin it to the canopy allowing you to go in and get her with your boat. I only use 65 lb. Power Pro braided line when frog fishing. I am not sponsored by Power Pro but I believe they make the best braid on the market.
