What pole would be best for me?

This past week I lost my Shakespeare Patriot fishing rod/reel to the depths of smith mountain lake, so I am in need of a new rod/reel, but I dont know what would be best for me. I fish for everything, but mostly bass. I dont want a really big pole, a 5 to 5 1/2 footer would be perfect. And I would prefer a pole under 50 bucks, a little bit over could possibly work out, though.
