How do you match your rod and lure?
How have you been, hopefully staying dry. Got a question to ask,
what is the best match rod for a crank bait, spinner bait, top water and
plastics. Referring to type action and length.
You must first understand that this is my personal opinion (but, it is based on 35 years in the business).
All the comments you hear about rods for different lures is mostly hype
from people sponsored by rod makers and who want you to buy more rods.
They would like you to think that every lure requires a different rod.
You only need a few rods and rod actions. You need a light /ultra light for special applications. After that, you only need the ONE spinning rod
and ONE baitcasting rod that suits YOUR style of casting and YOUR comfort zone. For me, the Berkley spinning Lightening Rod LR 27-6 is as good as
any ever made. It fits the requirement. hands down. 'Nuff said. For
baitcasting, I like a 6.5 foot med. heavy. I use a Falcon and also a
Lightening Rod series that I can't recall the numbers of. That is how
long I have been using them. They are perfect and I have used them for so
many years, I cannot even recall the models. BUT ----- you have to select
your own. What I use doesn't mean they will catch more fish for you. Use
what 'feels good' to you. Fishing is not nearly as complicated as some
manufacturers would have you believe. A lure/a rod/ a reel -- they are
just 'tools', just like a hammer and screwdriver. There is not a lot of
difference among the various brands - just then amount of advertising.
So, the angler is actually the 'effective ingredient' of this equation.
YOU find and catch fish. Not the lure/not the rod/ not the reel/not the
line --- just YOU. And, for God's sake, not some scent product. There has
never been a bigger hoax perpretrated on anglers than the scent thing.
Live prey has NEVER smelled like garlic, fish oil made from dead fish, etc.
So, make your own luck and fishing success. And 35-40 years from now.
remember that I told you so.
