Can you use any rod for beach fishing?
The rod should be light, say something like 200-300g weight and capable of casting weights of anything between 5g to 100g or more, depending on what lures you are planning to use. I always recommend carbon (graphite) surf rods for spinning techniques.
How far can a 12 foot rod cast?
in open water a 12 foot rod and say a 6500 abu with streamlined weights and bait can get 100 yards or more.
How do I know what size spinning rod to buy?
A short (6 feet or less) rod is ideal if you want to make short, accurate casts. When pinpoint accuracy is less critical, a long rod (over 7 feet) is the way to go. Dingy or dirty water and heavy cover are two situations where short-range accuracy is part of the recipe for success, and a shorter rod can really shine.
What lb fishing line should I use?
The higher the pound test, the stronger the line. For trout fishing, for example, one might use a 4- or 6-pound test line. For bass/walleye/northern pike fishing, use 8-pound test and up.

Do Baitcaster cast further than spinning reels?
Baitcaster reels provide more distance control when casting. They can also cast further than spinning reels, which can be an important factor for some anglers. Baitcaster reels are generally much more compact in size and design compared to their spinning reel equivalents.
What size rod is best for pier fishing?
A good length/size rod for an all round pier fishing is roughly seven to eight feet in length. Longer rods are better casting but not that great up close, shorter rods will be better for jigging and dropping bait down vertically but make it harder to turn a fish if they decide to run under the legs of the pier.
What is the best bait for pier fishing?
Bait: Popular types of pier fishing bait include bloodworms, shrimp, squid, anchovies and sardines. These should all be available at your local pier or bait shop.
What size rod do I need for beach fishing?
Surf fishing rods are almost twice as long as freshwater rods, attached with a reel that can hold hundreds of yards of thick fishing line. We recommend a surf rod between 8ft to 10ft in length attached with a 6000 to 8000 series reel, spooled with 25lb to 50lb braided fishing line.
How long should a beach fishing rod be?
Surf rods usually have a length of 9 to 14 feet. Longer surf fishing rods are designed to help you cast further, allowing you to reach targets beyond the waves. As a beginner, it’s better to get started with a shorter surf fishing rod. Most anglers usually go with rods that are 10 to 12 feet long.
