Default What's your jerk bait rod set up?

I've got my ideal set up with rods and reels for everything except jerk baits. What rod and reel do you have set up for throwing small jerkbaits? Preferably looking for a baitcaster. I bought a shimano compre graphite jerkbait rod last year and paired it with an older bantam curado I have, but it never really impressed me.

For trout I use a 6.5 foot Fenwick with 6 lb test and rapalas fished twitch twice pause.

For tiger musky and bass I use a 7 foot regular bass rod. Can even rember the name or action. I think it's a wade.

6'6" American Rodsmith Jerkbait rod, Quantum real. Have used spinning rods as well, no problem. Just needs to have a stiff action for proper movement in the water.

9' St. Croix 5wt. The jerk bait looks exactly like a woolly bugger.
