Tips For Choosing Surf Fishing Tackle

Many avid surf fishermen prefer fishing rods between 7 to 11 feet long, longer rod will cast at longer distance and shorter length rod will provide greater rod control. The action of the rod which determines the power of the rod is rated as fast, medium and heavy action. I recommend beginners to use a 9 feet rod with medium action rating. This rod will have enough backbone and sensitive enough to let you catch a wide range of saltwater fish.

Your surf fishing tackle should include the saltwater reels. It is a good idea to invest in a decent quality reel, using a cheap reel with improper seal and non coated gear will not last long in the harsh surf conditions. It is a good idea to visit the fishing shop and test out a few different types of reels and rods together. Ensure that the rod and reel combo feels comfortable because you will be holding and casting it all day. Fishermen prefer using spinning and conventional reels for surfcasting, there are advantages and disadvantages to both type of reels.
