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.

Can someone help me set up my fishing pole correctly?

I have never set a pole up from the beginning and just bought a new rod and reel. It is already set with the line, but I want to know how and where on the line do I put the sinker and those little details that will make me ready to go. Thanks
I would mainly be trout and bass fishing maining with night crawlers, at a lake or creek.

Are there any fishing pole guards to keep them from falling in the water?

Are there any ropes or some sort of floating device that attach to a fishing pole incase they accidently fall in the water? Im just wondering because ive seen Bill dance drop his fishing poles in the water about 100 times and now I’m kind of worried about my pole especially if I will be fishing in a Kayak.
