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.
Another factor that you should give some thought to is that purchasing a rod and reel requires quite a bit of research beforehand. You need to decide on the power and action of the pole the right length for the species you are trying to catch and you have to make sure that you match the rod with the reel in terms of these details and the gear ratio of the latter.
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.
However if you plan a fishing trip in the Southern hemisphere you should hurry because here the water gets warmer faster. Go there in March or April if you want to catch plenty of bass during the spawning time.
You may also find it a good idea to bring some sharpening stone with you as well. It is nothing unusual when struggling to bring such a strong fish out of the water to have your hooks becoming dull and ineffective. This is where a good tool for sharpening your hooks can come in handy.
