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.
We′ve tackled the benefits of rod and reel combos in other articles we′ve published over time. However since we have never addressed the issue individually we thought we might put together a short list of the advantages that such setups seem to offer and tell you how they′ve become to be rather popular over the years.
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 waters you′ll be fishing have something to say when it comes to the fishing technique you will employ. The size of the fish its feeding habits as well as whether or not it puts up a fight have a lot to do with the actual specifications of the rod and reel. As for the frequency of use it goes without saying that utilizing a combo quite often means that it has to be durable above all. Don′t forget to look at the bait or lure you will be using as its weight has a lot to do with selecting the proper setup.
Grip or Handle : The best type is constructed “through the handle” rather than a glued-on grip. Grips are composed of different materials such as cork foam or wood which provide comfort while casting and reeling in a fish. Cork Grips : Comfortable and do not absorb much water Foam Grips : Lightweight durable comfortable and do not break Pistol Grip : Shortest type of grip contoured to the shape of your hand with a hook for your index finger to help cast more accurately.
