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.
Action: Affects your casting distance and accuracy also relating to the lure or bait you need and the strength of the reel that should be used. The smaller the fish the lighter the action needed while the heavier the fish the heavier the action. An action may be slow medium fast or a combination (e.g. medium-fast.). An extra fast action rod bends just at the tip. A fast action bends in the last quarter of the rod. A moderate-fast action rod bends over the last third. A moderate action rod bends over the last half. A slow action rod bends all the way into the handle.
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.
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.
The last type of lures to talk about is plastic worms. These lures cost very little and they are a fixture in any tackle box. Like spinnerbaits they are not pretentious when it comes to what season and weather should be the most appropriate for use. The design that just as the name indicates resembles the shape of a real worm is quite appealing for bass.
