This is right up my alley, we have several semi private lakes here, loaded with a variety of bream, and small spots and largemouth bass.

The best true ultralight I have is a 6’ Daiwa Presso, with a 1500 size Aird reel. I’ve used it with both 2 and 4 # line. Caught a lot of fish with it, up to a 3# spotted bass. My favorite lure is a little 1/16 spinner called the “creek spin” made by Southern Pro Tackle. It’s like a miniature spinner bait, use it with the plastic body you prefer and it will catch the hell out of bream.

I find that I prefer a slightly heavier action most of the time. I have a 6’3” Quantum Smoke rod, light action. I’m using a small Lews reel on it, don’t remember the model. I like this one so well that I bought a spare, exactly the same right down to the reel. I run 4# Yo-Zuri hybrid on these. By far my most often used rods.

Just this week I discovered a cheap ($50) Falcon rod, the SLAB series. I couldn’t resist and bought one each in 5’ and 6’. The little 5 footer seems like it’ll be a lot of fun.
