The rod tapers from one end to the other. The degree of taper determines how much the rod will flex when stress is applied to it. Slower rods are easier to cast. A wider loop on the forward cast reduces casting distance.
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.
Make sure that you go on any fishing trip well prepared. Equip yourself and your tackle box with all the necessary items for a successful adventure. Bass may not be very stubborn or particularly challenging fish to catch but still they can present certain quirks that it is best for you to know about.
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.
Spinning Rods: Ranges in length from 5 to 8 feet positioning the reel and guides on the bottom of the pole to provide smooth accurate casts. Features graphite or fiberglass with a cork or PVC foam handle: Longer spinning rods with elongated grip handles for two-handed casting are for saltwater or steelhead and salmon fishing spinning rods are also widely used for trolling and still fishing with live bait the handle length is balanced against the rod′s length triggers are not used on spinning rods spin casting rods are rods designed to hold a spincasting reel which are normally mounted above the handle.
