How to Choose the Best Fishing Rod 0

Posted on January 09, 2020 by Ronald Mccarthy

Often overlooked, choosing the right kind of fishing rod is one of the most essential factors if you want to be successful in catching any type of fish. Proper placement of your bait, without spooking fish, can have a significant impact if you want to hook any fish on your fishing rod. Using the wrong rod will not allow you to cast as far or as accurately as possible. Use the right rod with a proper technique, and you can bring in lots of fish to your fish basket. The right rod should not be confused with an expensive one, as it doesn’t matter if you don’t know how to use it properly. Using the wrong rod will make it harder for you to put fish in your Livewell. If you use the wrong rod, you will often confuse snugs, hangs or collisions with a fish bite, which is, frankly, embarrassing for you. Here are a few things you can take into consideration that will help you in buying the best fishing rod for you.

Length

The length of the rod is one of the most important factors you should consider before buying a new fishing rod. These range from small 4 feet rods to long 14 feet ones, but generally, people use anywhere from 6 to 8 feet rods. The general rule is that a short rod casts short distances, while a long rod casts long distances. Shorter rods are used for fishing in close quarters like fishing in a small kayak or a small boat in a pond. Longer rods are generally used for fishing in big open waters. Considering the length of a fishing rod is key if you want to fish in small or big waters.
