im Leaving for sarasota florida in two days. Im from NJ and Im not sure what people are catching in florida this time of season besides pompano. What types of fish should i look to catch and what baits should i use to catch them? Thanks
Also Im SALTWATER fishing
i am fishing off land mostly surf fishing (on the beach)
Thanks for all the answers, I’ve been fishing since I was about 3. But my dad couldn’t explain to me about some of the particulars on the reels. I did notice the higher the bearings the smoother the reeling is. I didn;t know what some of the things on the reel meant. And it’s just for White Bass fishing, nothing major, I’m just starting my gear collection.
What should I be looking for in a spinning reel? What are important things that I should look for?
Also, what is the little switch on the reel that says ‘on’ and ‘off’?
And just one more thing, is there any way to make the handle that you rotate on the right side? I’m used to have having it on the right since I was used to a push-button rod before.
I am looking to upgrade but my budget is only 40-50 dollars for a rod. i saw at my local gander mountain, and i saw a rod that had 6-7 ball bearings but it was a spinning rod but i saw another rod that was a bait casting rod but it was only 3 ball bearings. what is the difference? i had a spinning rod but i want to change to a bait casting rod. What should i get?
I have a rod that is very bendy, (It bends from the butt to the tip).
I have caught on it but was advised to get a stiffer rod for casting and also for lifting fish caught from a pier.What sort of things do I check when buying another rod?
There seems to be an amazing choice of rods.
My price limit would be about £60.
I also need a new reel. Again about £60.
Any advice would be welcome
