WHEN SHOULD I USE A BAITCASTING ROD?
A bait-casting rod requires a degree of angling skill. To cast with a bait-casting rod, you hold it in your hand like you would a tennis racket, with the reel facing up toward you. The weight of the rod should rest on your index finger and your thumb should lie across the line in the reel at a 45-degree angle. You then pull back the rod and flick it forward overhand to cast. As the rod snaps forward fully, you lift your thumb to release the line from the spool. When you use your baitcasting rod correctly, the weight of terminal tackle on the end of your line will unroll the line on the reel, landing the bait near your target fish.
WHAT ARE THE ADVANTAGES OF USING A BAITCASTING ROD?
Baitcasting rods are usually longer than spinning rods and generally use a heavier gauge line. This makes them the ideal choice if you are casting long distances or fishing for larger fish like Walleye and Bass. The line on a baitcasting rod and reel comes off straight, creating greater accuracy when casting. This also has the benefit of reducing the need to replace your line regularly, as can be necessary with the coiled line of a spinning rod. A baitcaster fishing rod is an essential piece of equipment for serious anglers who enjoy a challenge.
Baitcast fishing rods and baitcast reels are designed to handle heavy duty fishing line. With the appropriate hard body lure or soft body lure, baitcast fishing line can be pulled through underwater weeds easily, without your terminal tackle falling off. Although most newcomers start with spinner rods and spinning reels, many gravitate toward baitcaster rods or baitcast combos due to the simplicity of operation, and the ability to catch larger fish such as Bass without breaking the fishing line. Baitcaster combos can be used for catching Barramundi, Bream, Flathead and other popular Australian fish.
