I love my berkley cherrywood rods and Okuma reels.
I mostlly use 1/16oz minnow style jig heads with 2" rib grubs for my all round panfishing. In also like the tube insert 1/16 or 1/32 oz jig heads and 1.5" tubejigs, they work awesome under a bobber. You can even spice it up with a little berkley earthworm powerbait or real night crawler piece.
For line I normally use 6# Trilene or silver thread.
