Don't know of any high end rods ("price is not a concern") that are designed to do both well, two very different technics/presentations with their own specific rod design characteristics, powers and actions. Been using Shimano Cumara and Cumulus rods with Shimano Stradic Ci4+ and Curado reels which cover me in most my fishing adventures, but separate trolling rods with either baitcaster reels or level wind reels to cover off those situations. Been using Fireline since forever, as for lures, no intelligent answer can be had unless the person knows conditions and body of water, to ask for the top 5 lures such a vague question that not one can really answer, unless you just want to hear, jigs/crankbaits/jigging spoons/spinner harnesses/drop shot rigs....if it works it works!What is the best walleye rod and reel that will cover me for jigging as well as trolling? Price is not a concern.
Also best line and top 5 lures.
The OP did say price was not a concern!!!!!I see this quite often, someone asking about equipement, and you get a bunch of guys firing off their farovite brand names, they swear by.
Best time now to hit Pro-Am, they are having a sale until Saturday ( I heard), have a budget in mind for how much you are willing to spend, talk to the guys there about what the type of fishing you are wanting to do, they will set you up with the right outfit.
Remeber some of these rod and reels other are going on about, might be higher in price then you are wanting to spend,,,
