Is it good to fish where there is heavy foliage for fish?

Lakes around here have lot of foliage and tall grass growing near the bank.
I usually fish from shore and currently is investing in a boat. I’ve been told that large fish love heavy foliage. Thing is I hate loosing my crank baits and spinners in the plant material just to reel in grass. Whats a solution to this??

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

What is a good baitcaster reel and rod combo for a beginner?

I’m going to be 15 and I want to get a baitcaster. I fish in Canada on the summers I catch pike, bass, catfish, and panfish. I want a low profile reel and I have a budget of about $100. I want an all around good combo for what I’m going to catch with. Pro’s, con’s, brands, and specific combos would be appreciated! Thanks!!
Is abu Garcia good just for the price because I saw a lot of abu Garcia poles that complained about durability
