The Best Surf Fishing Combos For Great Coastline Catches

Updated on December 10, 2010

Whether you’re fishing on the sandy beach, on the rocks or half in the water, and whether you’re using fish traps, fish nets or fishing rods for catching fish, that’s called surf fishing as long as you do it near saltwater shores. Some of the great catches with this kind of fishing are bass, cod, dogfish and black bream which tend to swim around in schools near shorelines. The good thing is, the most popular and effective ways to do surf fishing is by the use of a good surf fishing rod and a matching reel.

Surf fishing rods are normally available in lengths ranging from 10 feet (3 meters) to 14 feet (4 meters) which are very useful in allowing an angler to cast his bait past the surf which is where the fish are usually found. Aside from the length, you should check the material of a surf fishing rod if you want to get one that’s going to last you years of excellent performance. Graphite and fiberglass are popular materials for rods because of their durability and lightness which makes it easier to handle.

When it comes to the reels, don’t settle for anything that comes big and cheap or you might just get disappointed. Surf fishing reels should be saltwater resistant. Look for materials such as graphite, anodized aluminum and stainless steel which are all durable, light and rust-resistant. Be sure to check the drags too and see that they hold firmly. To make it easier, why not get a quality surf fishing combo that will guarantee you a set that works perfectly together? For your convenience, here are some examples of surf fishing combos that will help you make your decision.
