You want to try something new in a spinning reel? The U. S. Reel company has invented a superb spinning reel with many features and benefits that can make your fishing experience outstanding! These reels are up to 50% lighter when they are compared to other spinning reels with similar spool diameters. They are made of super light carbon fiber components which is the same material used in the B-2 Stealth bomber, plus its as strong as it is light. If you want to cast a long distance with accuracy, this is the reel for you. Casting distance is one of its defining features because of the wide spool. It will out cast any other spinning reel with a “long-nose”.
Some people like to target them with tiny poppers, either with fly fishing gear or spinning gear. I have caught a few that way but I can’t say it’s been a go-to technique for me. Bluegill will sometimes bite small spinners and minnow plugs, although generally this just works for the bigger ones.
First you need to make sure you have the adequate equipment. A fishing rod that is between 10 feet and 15 feet long is the ideal length in order to achieve good casting distance and leverage. The fishing reel can be a Baitcasting reels size 6000 up to an 8000 size with a good drag system and good line capacity for heavier line such as 17 to 25 pound test. One thing to remember about fishing in the ocean, you never know what you will catch, so you need to be prepared with the proper heavy equipment to handle a 30 pound sting ray or a large blue fish that have giant teeth, not to mention the occasional shark. Sometimes you will catch small fish like whiting or lady fish that are too small for a heavy rod, but being prepared for the big one is really what you want.
Lower gear ratio reels are better suited to trolling and bottom fishing. They allow for a lot of power than speed and are especially effective in bringing the bigger, slower moving species of fish.
The closed face reel is the easiest to use and requires the least amount of skill to operate. The spool holding the line and the mechanical components are enclosed in a cover. There is a button on the top or back of the reel the you depress at the start of the cast and release at the end. Since the line is enclosed under a cover there is little chance of a backlash. This type pf reel is great for kids who are just learning to fish. Due to the ease of use of this type reel manufactures have geared their marketing of this type reel by developing the rod and reel combinations like the SNOOPY rod.
Surf fishing for striped bass is a cold water endeavor. They prefer water between 55 and 65 degrees. Fishing the surf for these guys ranges from North Carolina to Nova Scotia. In warmer areas of the US they are more likely to be found in fresh water lakes and rivers where the water is colder.
Fly fishing tackle is such a kind of rod and Reel where anglers need to attach a fly in the line. In a fly fishing tackle the Reel is only used to store the line, but not to handle the weight, bait or lure. Casting a fly fishing tackle is the hardest job, but practice is the answer to that. If you are fishing in the saltwater then you need some extra equipment. Usually a saltwater fly fishing tackle can be of stainless steel or nickel chrome.
