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.
Action determines how much control you have over the fish. The faster the action the more pressure you can put on the fish. The power is your rod weight so deciding the type of fish you want to catch will determine the power you need for your rod.
There is some summertime bass fishing but spring still reigns supreme when it comes to evaluating your chances of catching bass. Are you more interested in fishing for bass during the cold season? That is doable but you must bear in mind that bass is less likely to overexert itself even for the enticing prospect of food. That means that it will bite less and you will have to arm yourself with patience.
There are three lure types you can use for bass: Crankbaits spinnerbaits and synthetic worms. Other aspects that come into play are size and color and here you will have plenty to choose if you want to delve into the world of bass fishing.
