I just bought an 11ft fishing rod to fish off the beach. My rig keeps snapping.?

Im using a fish finder rig with a 6oz sinker, which works great off the surf with smaller rods. Its weird, using monofilament and it seems to just fray and shred and snap about 10 inches from the hook. Why is this happening? The line keeps doing this. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

I have just bought a fishing rod, reel, 8lb line, floats and lures, what goes on the line first etc?

I know how to tie knots etc, I’m just a bit unsure of how I set up the line, I am going fishing for trout, my rod is set up and the line is through the last eye on the rod, can someone tell me what gets tied on first? (bubble I think, then 2nd etc etc)

I bought a push button kid’s fishing rod. How do I hook up the line?

I got a Batman fishing rod for my 3 year old–push button. There is line in it and a plastic fish came with it so he would always have a ‘fish’ to reel in.

I have no idea how to hook it up. Do I thread it through the eyelets and just tie the fish on? I was practicing casting the line and it won’t cast. Is that because there is no weight on it yet?
