The length of a fishing rod typically ranges from 6 to 12 feet. The length of your rod largely depends on the type of fishing you plan to do the species you′re after and your fishing environment. Also consider your own angling experience and strength level. A beginner should start with a rod short enough to help with control and the development of technique but long enough to provide a good casting distance (8 to 9 feet long). Small children need a shorter rod because of their height. In wooded areas or those with surrounding brush choose a shorter rod. In wide open spaces where you would be most likely to fly fish choose a longer rod. To catch larger more aggressive fish you will need a stronger shorter rod.
Saltwater Casting & Conventional Rods: The reel and line are seated on top of the rod and the trigger grip lets you hold the rod securely while releasing the thumb bar/line release. A quick taper at the rod tip for accuracy and a large backbone at the lower portion of the rod for stability. Saltwater bait-casting rods can be made from fiberglass or graphite. Fiberglass is more durable and has greater lifting power than graphite which makes it a preference for larger fish such as tuna and yellowtail. Graphite rods are more bait sensitive and work well for surf fishing and open water when bait is cast over a greater distance.
Bass fishing is a quite common and gratifying activity. However it is much more enjoyable when you manage to catch something. The role of the above guide is to help you maximize your chances of catching bass.
