You will not be very successful if you pick to start fishing when the sun is up in the sky. Of course this does not mean that you will not be able to catch anything. But if you want to maximize your chances go for darker areas where it is more likely for bass to hide.
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.
Now that you have an idea about the season which is best fitted for bass fishing let′s pay a little attention to the type of habitat this fish prefers. This cautious species has a propensity for dark areas because this is where it feels well-guarded against any danger. That means that the most indicated bass fishing time of day is influenced by these habits.
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.
Saltwater Guides: Made of plastic metal or ceramic. Circles are positioned to the rod′s shaft to control fishing line. In casting rods line guides are on top of the rod. They are smaller to reduce the play in the line and allow for easier casting and quicker retrieve. Spinning rods place the line guides on the rod′s bottom. These guides get larger toward the base of the rod. The number of line guides is determined by the rod′s length as well as by the quality of the rod.
