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.
Power: Rods may be classified as ultra-light light medium-light medium medium-heavy heavy ultra-heavy or other similar combinations. Ultra-light rods are suitable for catching small bait fish and also pan fish or situations where rod responsiveness is critical. Ultra-Heavy rods are used in deep sea fishing surf fishing or for heavy fish by weight.
Trigger stick:A longer trigger stick is for two-handed longer casts. Reel Seat:Reel seats are the attachment point where the pole and reel connect made of molded plastic or graphite and responsible for securing the reel and eliminating any “play” or “wobble” while casting or reeling in a fish. Common reel seats consist of a collar that is tightened by screwing around the reel. Ferrules : This is the portion of the rod that screws together the only part of the rod that requires assembly.
Graphite Rods:Usually preferred by advanced anglers due to their superior strength and lightness. The lightweight graphite handles most fishing situations well providing more fighting power in the rod.
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.
