Action determines how much control you have over the fish. The faster the action the more pressure you can put on the fish. The power is your rod weight so deciding the type of fish you want to catch will determine the power you need for your rod.
As with any other gear and equipment destined for fishing before making a choice you have to look at a set of details pertaining to your needs and preferences. Where will you be fishing? What kind of size and fish species are you going to pursue? Are you a weekend or vacation angler or would you rather do it as often as possible? Just how much are you willing to spend on a new setup?
Since they are so cautious bass will swim away from their usual places only very early in the morning and late in the evening. Some anglers swear by their bass fishing nighttime adventures but it is not a good idea to base your next fishing trips only on isolated experiences. As long as you don′t mind getting up early to go swimming for bass you should be fine.
Saltwater Surfcasting: When searching for your saltwater rod consider the length power and action you need. Longer rods cast farther while shorter rods provide more power for fighting fish. Most saltwater fishing rods are made of graphite or fiberglass. Graphite rods are stiffer and more sensitive while fiberglass fishing rods are tougher and more powerful. Profile:Look like oversized spinning rods or bait casting rods with long grip handles for two-handed casting techniques. Length:From 10 to 18 feet in length. They have to be longer to be able to cast the lure or bait beyond the breaking surf where fish likely pray and strong enough to cast heavy lures or bait needed to hold the bottom in rough water. The length of the rod depends on how far and what weight of lure you want to cast let say a 12 feet surfcasting rod will easily allow you to throw a 2 to 4 ounce lure more than 200 feet. Long Rod:The advantage of a long surf rod is great casting distance which helps to fight the big game fish without breaking a fishing line. Short Rod:You have much more control on the fish and it allows you to use lighter line with a longer rod. Species:Red Drum Black Drum Tautog Blackfish Flounder Fluke Black Sea Bass Bonefish Atlantic Bonito and Albacore Tuna Pompano and Spanish Mackerel Sharks and Weakfish (Sea Trout) Snook and Tarpon. Bottom-fishing:Bottom-fishing rods run about 10 feet and normally take 6 to 30-pound test.
The warm waters entice the fish to leave behind the places where they hid during the winter. The fish will begin the spawn time frenzy by starting to look for areas where they can lay their eggs and nurture their young. Shallow waters are ideal from this point of view. Because the bass swims closer to the surface you will find this species an easier catch.
