How do I retrieve tube and brush hog in bass fishing?

Ok so I now have all my gear to go bass fishing and im using some soft plastic tubes and brush hogs mainly using a carolina rig. I will be fishing in lakes for small mouth and large mouth. After casting what are some good methods of retrieval for the lures other than just reeling it in. for instance should i pause for so many seconds after the bait hits the water then reel? or should i reel then pause for so many seconds then reel again?

Im thinking of a good set up for fresh water bass fishing?

Im thinking of getting a new setup this year and spend some money on getting a good set up instead of just a store made combo.

so ive had the 7’3″ carrot stix medium heavy action casting rod and a shimano cittica 6.4:1 baitcast reel.

has anyone used these or know about baitcast ive never used it but all the pro seem to use baitcast over spinning reels now adays.

im really just looking for good rod and reel combos not looking to spend more that $250 maybe $300 if its great quality
