Rods come in three basic styles: casting/conventional spinning and surfcasting rods. Casting/Conventional Rods:Designed to have the reel and guides on the top casting rods are effective for anglers looking to cast several hundred times during a fishing trip. Generally match up best with baitcasting and casting rods because they sit on top of the rod designed to fit this way. Most casting rods can handle heavy line and fish in dense cover.
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.
If you use crankbaits your choice for a rod should be a 6.5-foot model. You will find it easy to cast your line from flat areas on the shore if your choice for lures is a crankbait.
