The first rule of thumb is - the smaller the fish you are hunting the smaller the rod you should use. A little stream or beck will need a small rod of only four or five feet whereas big salmon from huge rivers can command rods up to sixteen or seventeen feet in length. Those are the obvious extremes; its the fishing activities in between where it can get confusing. One rod may be ideal in one circumstance but unsuitable in another where a rod of the same length might be perfect. So there must be a lot more to it than just length.
It is important when rigging the bait to keep the baits as close together as possible without getting them tangled unless of course you intend to "spread out" your particular presentation of schooling bait-fish or shad. Some anglers use the Alabama Rig as their "search" bait much like a spinner-bait is used to seek out schooling or suspended fish in open water while other anglers prefer to aim their rig at precise targets. They will fan-cast to points piles humps and other aquatic cover in a technique similar to that of using a crank-bait. Still other anglers will cast shallow varying depth with their rig to where they believe the fish are hunkered down. A common presentation technique for this innovative tackle design is to cast out count the amount of time it takes to reach bottom and then retrieve. If a fish doesnt strike the baits then subtract a second from your count on the next drop-down to depth and retrieve. Repeat until either you catch a fish or conclude that you have covered that particular column and area of water. This tactic works well on deep drop-off points and submerged mounds or humps. Also when fishing swim baits or jigs on your A-Rig you can vary the weight of the jig heads to make it sink faster or slower as well as changing the retrieve speed to either sustain or descend your school of bait-fish in the water column. Ultimately your presentation will depend on the where you believe the fish to be located and thus how deep shallow slow or fast you want to fish.
