I have that same Ugly Stick rod and I have plugged with it but it does tire your shoulders and arms real quick

I currently use a 9' St Croix Legend Surf which is outstanding and also expensive. But I can plug with it all night and it's lightweight and sensitive.

There are lots of choices for less money as well

That rod (ugly stik) is manufactured for bait fishing - and others are for lure fishing.
Probably the most frequently asked question on the site is what rod do i buy?
Heres some help in selection. Hope it helps.

A "casting rod" is referring to a conventional setup - a rod that would pair with a reel like a Penn Squidder or an Abu 7000.

A surf 'casting' rod does not have a trigger. The rods with triggers are also 'casting rods but are usually shorter. You usually don't find a casting type rod 9' or over with a trigger. I had bought an Airwave a few weeks ago as I got a decent deal on it. It worked pretty well for the money. I had just went down to my boat house to grab it to get ready for some fishing and it is gone along with a tackle box and 2 other rods and reels and the modified 6600c that was on it. F...ing theives if I catch them they are going to get shot. Now I'm stuck with my regular 6600c and my St. Croix 7'6" unless I pickup another rod. My 7'6" does have a trigger, well I also have my 704z and 11' Ugly also.
