4 Rods You Should Consider Before Your Next Fishing Trip

Spin Casting Rods fishing trips

If you have never fished before, a spin casting setup is perfect for the inexperienced. Casting is very simple and done with the press of a button. Just a crank of the handle gets the line on the spool. Overall, it is very easy to handle and perfect for any fishing trip, no matter your skill level.

Fly Casting Rods 

You may have heard of fly fishing before; this means using lightweight bait that is meant to act like minnows and other flying insects to attract fish. A fly casting rod and reel is what you’d need for this kind of fishing.

Spinning Rods

A spinning rod is one of the most common types of setups, especially when fishing for bass, crappie, redfish and other medium-sized fish. It allows for both heavy and light lures, as well as live bait. Its versatility is a big draw for several fishers.

Baitcasting Rods 

Baitcasting rods and reels are for the more experienced fisherman who wants accuracy and better overall control. These require patience and practice to perform well. They are also only used for lures alone, so they are not as versatile as other options.
