All Purpose Fishing Rod Reels and Accessories
Wouldn’t it be great if you get just one rod and reel to meet all your fishing needs? Truth is that wont work. Many people start off with graphite Zebco rods and they will do well in a local lake or pond. Once you decide to move into bigger fish, you will definitely want to invest in a spinning fishing reel that will give you more versatility towards bait and lures.
If someone tries to see you an all in one pole, be leery. Professional fishermen always demand performance and most recommend staying with name brand equipment that ensures the joints and components inside the reel are made to last.
The Best Freshwater Fishing Rod Reel Setup
If you are going to be a fresh water fisherman you essentially want to find a fishing rod and reel combo that has a spinning reel. Set your rod up with a line that is suitable for 8-14 pound fish and make sure that the spinning reel has at least 5 ball bearings.
This will work well whether you are fishing with a worm and bobber or casting spinning lures. If you don’t use a spinning reel, the problem is that you are not able to pull them up quick enough to make lures active and attract the fish. Shimano equipment is well priced and versatile enough for most fresh water fishing that you will do locally.
