A spinning rod is a great fishing pole for beginners. It’s the type of fishing rod you want to use when you’re targeting species of fish that are up to 6 to 7 pounds or smaller. Spinning rods are available in a variety of different lengths, but as a beginner, you should look for a spinning rod that’s 6 feet in length.
Be aware of what fish you are trying to catch and what kind of bait attracts them. Catfish, for example, respond to raw chicken liver while bream fish like insects like crickets. The wrong bait could mean a very long unfruitful day, not the way you want to start when embarking on this beautiful endeavor!
Depending on the fish you intend to catch, you’ll need special equipment, so it’s best to consult a professional before venturing out. Fishing from the beach is an excellent option for first-timers. The species of fish you can catch are virtually endless.
You will see that I like certain brands for my rods and reels, and that is based on my 12+ years of experience in bass fishing. Shimano, Abu Garcia, Pflueger, and Fenwick are quality brands that I have relied on over all these years.
Though the term sounds imposing (and you'll be hoping your gear does prove terminal to a dinner's worth of fillets), terminal tackle simply means the hooks, sinkers, bobbers and artificial lures that you'll be fastening to the end of your line before you cast in search of fish. Once again, the choices are wide enough to be overwhelming, but a few basic purchases should get you underway.
On waters big enough to allow longer casting, your weighted spinners can also be effective. Again, work from a position in the stream itself, either casting upstream, past promising hiding places, then reeling fast enough to move the lure ahead of the current, or downstream, casting toward the bank at an angle so the moving water sweeps the lure out toward midstream as you reel. In either case, remember where strikes occur, and be observant. The key to stream fishing is developing a sense of what's going on under the water by watching its surface.
If you’ve ever tried to fish with a baitcasting reel you’ll know that it’s not always easy. To avoid having a tangled mess of line to deal with, the first thing to do when you’re learning is turn the dial at the side to max, which will slow the speed at which the line is released from the spool.As you cast, you release the button, allowing the spool to release the line. But the important thing to remember is as your bait starts to descend into the water, slowly put your thumb on the spool to start to slow it down, so that when your bait hits the water, you can firmly press down to stop your line feeding out.
Here are excellent options in both monofilament and braided line for your bass fishing spinning reel. For baitcasting reels, you can choose the same lines but increase them to 15-20 lb mono, and 30-50 lb braid.
Have you ever wanted to learn how to catch fish? Do you want to know how to catch more fish? From setting hooks to choosing bait, to cleaning, the information you need is here. If you ever wanted to learn to fish carp, catfish, or even how to catch trout, this section is for you.
For a different look, tie on a small wacky rig hook and rig the worm right in the middle. This is “Wacky” style fishing, and it’s deadly on bass. The main drawback is the rig is a little less weedless compared to texas style.
Lee says May 16, 2018 He looks everyone. Big big noob here. I actually have been wanting to learn how to fly fish so I went and purchased a Pfluger fly fishing kit. Now I know this is a very basic and inexpensive kit but in actuality it was free by using a points reward program at work so I didn’t spend any actual money on it. I received it today, and basically put it together and fed the prespooled line through the guides and tied on the tapered leader…..now the noob comes in, I actually thought this is what the fly gets tied to and tied it on and went to make a few clumsy casts in a pond outside my front door. To my surprise I pulled in 2 fish, not monsters of course and not even baby monsters lol but fun either way. First was a whopping 3 in perch and the other a solid 5 in bass….lol I was excited hahaha. So is it totally wrong to use the leader to tie the fly onto or can I use it till I need to buy the leader and tippet Reply Name* Email* Website Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment.

The core of your outfit, of course, will be the rod and reel. And, since we're trying to pick out a simple, versatile, more or less foolproof rig, your best bets are probably 1) a bait casting outfit, 2) a spin-casting set or 3) an open-faced spinning reel and matching rod. There are enthusiastic fans of each option, and any of the choices would do the job, but I'm going to go out on a limb and suggest that you buy a medium-sized, open-faced spinning reel (one suitable for line in the sixto 10-pound test range; have the salesperson load it with as much as it will hold when you buy it) and a medium action, six- to seven-foot fiberglass spinning rod. (The action, sometimes called power, should appear on a label somewhere on the rod.) With this rig, a few lures and a selection of hooks and sinkers, which will be described below, you should be able to go for most freshwater fish, in most types of water, and even catch smaller saltwater species.
