I actually prefer a hefty spinning rod for lily pad bass fishing. I find that I can do more accurate pin point casts and do a better delivery and presentation with a spinning rod. I often whoop up on my fishing buddies with it too!It is kind of funny to watch them change rods and lures over and over in the lily pads while I stick with using one rod and can stick with just one lure but sometimes different colors of it and get more hits than they do.I use a 7' MH fast rod with a 4000 size spinning reel loaded with 30 pound braid and go to town in heavy cover. And I get a kick out of watching my buddies try doing the same thing as successfully with baitcast reels and struggling with it while the spinning rod and reel make easy work of it.
