If you don′t have a lot of experience or you′ve simply never purchased a pole or a reel ever before a combo is a natural option. Besides in most of the cases you′ll have to pay less money on a combo than you would if you were to get the rod and reel separately.
As we′ve noted in other articles baitcasting combos speak to the needs of expert or advanced fishers so it might be a good idea to steer clear of them if you don′t have the skills just yet. Another budget-friendly option would be a telescopic combo. This way you′ll be able to carry your rod and reel in the trunk of your car and be ready for any fishing occasion.
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.
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.
