I am looking to purchase a ultralight spinning rod for fishing for trout, pike minnow, kokanee, etc in lakes. I was recommended the Daiwa Spinmatic rod and I found out there are many options to choose from. If anybody could tell me which one would be the best for fishing from shore or occasionally trolling in a boat.
I have the following options:
Length: 7'6 ft Model: SMC 762ULFS Power: UL Action: Fast Line wt: 2 - 6 Lure wt: 1/32 - 1/4 Number of guides: 9
Length: 8 ft Model: SMC 802ULFS Power: UL Action: Fast Line wt: 2 - 6 Lure wt: 1/32 - 1/4 Number of guides: 9
Length: 6 ft Model: 602ULFS Power: UL Action: Fast Line wt: 1 - 4 Lure wt: 1/32 - 1/8 Number of guides: 8
Length: 6'6" ft Model: 662ULFS Power: UL Action: Fast Line wt: 2 - 6 Lure wt: 1/32 - 1/4 Number of guides: 8
Length: 7 ft Model: 702ULFS Power: UL Action: Fast Line wt: 2 - 6 Lure wt: 1/32 - 1/4 Number of guides:8
Next is the 4pc Pack Rod Daiwa SMC Spinmatic Series
Length: 5'6" ft Model: SMC 564ULFS Power: UL Action: Fast Line wt: 1 - 4 Lure wt:1/32 - 1/8 Number of guides: 7
Length: 6'0" ft Model: SMC 604ULFS Power: UL Action: Fast Line wt: 1 - 4 Lure wt:1/32 - 1/8 Number of guides:8
Length: 6'6" ft Model: SMC 664ULFS Power: UL Action: Fast Line wt: 2 - 6 Lure wt:1/32 - 1/4 Number of guides:8
Length: 7'0: ft Model: SMC 704ULFS Power: UL Action: Fast Line wt: 2 - 6 Lure wt:1/32 - 1/4 Number of guides:9

If anybody could help me out that would be great. I already have a reel that I could put on the rod.

Check out "Valley Custom Fishing Rods" in Chilliwack

I'm sure they can put together a quality rod for you that will meet all your specifications.

Thanks guys. I have some Daiwa combos that are light action and was thinking about getting something a little more sensitive(ultralight).

Anything over 7feet is a good UL
cagey

that limits it to the first one on your list. I'd take it out of the choices.
by the way for your camping/fishing trip why not consider where you went hunting last fall. lots of places to camp and lots of place to explore when not fishing. another suggestion would be east of Vernon or Aberdeen lk areas.
you might find some place you will want to return to ( oh oh, not supposed to think hunting on here ). you might still have my email. if so drop me a note if you want more details........I'd go east of Vernon to Keefer lk if I had small kids. they would love it.

Thanks everyone, and thanks for letting me know Cagey.
Unfortunately we are going to have to keep this trip close to home because we only have a couple nights, but hopefully later in the season we can get out for a longer trip, further from home.
