Hi all anglers,
i've recently started angeling, specialy shore. Right now i am using an Ugly Stick MH 10' Luer:1 to 6onz. Long hours of casting is not possible. Pls advice on another spinning rod to cast long enough from the shore but still light in weight.

Hi Mario,

Are you trying to spin from the shore??? Not a good idea. I mean do you cast lures from shore??

Anything above 9' is good for surf or bait fishing from the rocks. For spinning try and use 7' to 8' rods. You have multiple option in these kind of rods. You may go for 1 piece rod but carriage will be issue, if not you may go with 2 piece rods. Go in for cork handle rods as they tend to be more lighter. Couple these rods with good reels that can give you good casting distance, like say Daiwa Tierra (I own one), Shimano Stradic FI, Shimano Spheros SB, Daiwa Emblem PRO, etc.

For Shore:
Get yourself a Daiwa Sealine Surf Spinning Rod (SLS0902MHFS) and get one of the above Reels else if you are low on budget you may even go in for Daiwa DF100A Giant (30 oz) but low on cost, this one I would suggest use for surf fishing would not be ideal for spinning.


Hope this helps :)

Don't know. I spin from shore very often.

Master Dezz is confused. Once he reads this, I'm sure he will call me up.

Mario, according to me, for guys spinning from the coast in mumbai, a 7ft rod, max 20lb class with a matching (balanced) reel 4000 to 5000 series is the best. Once you masted this, you can go in for lighter rods & finer line (lower strength) & have a blast. From what I have seen in Bombay its is 'Yank the fish out' almost everytime. Few people play the fish, which is a challenge in itself from the rocks.

regards,
Keyur

Well here's a bit of clarification on what I actually wanted to say. When I mean shore, if you have considerable dept of water from shore it should be good, else I have experienced lure hitting the bottom. Not too sure if that helps.

Keyur: This I said coz I tried this near the palace where the right side is good for spinning but near the shore even the 3' diving lures hit the sand as far as 20 meters.

Hello Mario,

What sort of line are you using? monofilament? and what strength?

If possible, switch over to braided line (which will have much lower
diameter than mono for the same strength).

You will then be able to get extra distance with the same setup that you have at present.

Furthermore, you could also go down in size/weight for the lure you are
casting yet still achieve a reasonable cast distance wise.

By the way, what lures are you using from the shore?Metals only or hard
bodied lures?as these will also have an effect on casting distance.

Thanks all of you for your advice. My tackel comprises of Big water ugly stick 10'MH, Pen 650ssm, fireline braid 50lb and skitter pop n shalow divers. Problem lies with casting hard bodied in 3/4, 1/2 ounce range. I would like to know which rod would help cast lighter luers.
I realy feel lucky to be on this forum . The exp shared by other anglers post becomes a lesson worth learning . Once again thank you all .

Hi Mario,

You use lighter tackle as you lower your lure weight, your rod/reel and line should match your lure to make the most of it so that they compliment each other.

The best minnow type casting lures I have come across are the Yo-Zuri allie-magnet type lures, perfect action in the water and fantastic weight transfer during casting.

Nothing wrong in casting from shore. :lol:

Hello Mario,

Thanks for clarifying the equipment you have at present. Whoever set you
up with this has done a good job,in my opinion, for the heavier side of beach fishing.
I believe that for beginners, an Ugly Stik combined with a Penn Spinfisher
reel is the right combo for Indian conditions, as these are robust and reliable products needing minimal care.

Consequently, I suggest that you look for a similar combination for your lighter outfit.

Looking through the Shakespeare (Ugly Stik manufacturer) site, you will
find (in their Big Water series rods) Model BWS1100 - this is a 2 piece,7ft.
rod rated for 10-25lb line and able to cast 1/2-3 oz. lures.

If you mate this with a Penn 360 Slammer reel (which has a 20lb. braid
capacity of 290 yds.), you should have an outfit that is reasonably priced,
tough,easily portable and suitable for your needs.

Good luck.

Kingfish

@ Teritex: whats sauce for the goose is not for the gander...Maybe Mario is NOT fishing near the 'palace'?
Locale dictates a different setup.Many places in NSW, Australia, there's some superlative rocks, where major pelagics run.The technique there is to 'cast far and retrieve furious' Spinning, ofcourse.
Mario would have to choose his lures and technique to cast from the shore, if thats what he's doing at the moment...

Dear mario
I am a beginner myself but from rocks or from the mouth of estuary I find the combo of 7 to 8 ft rod with a 4000 or 5000 series reel is ideal . I myself use a Tsunami travel rod (3 Piece) with Daiwa tierra 4000 or some time Cabela's salt striker SS50 and pen two piece spinning rod . I really like that Tsunami travel rod it is really very light and extremely strong. you can also look at the shimano Fx series medium heavy rod 8 ft or 9 ft(two piece) with hyperloop 4000fb in the IA shope
tight lines

Hi Mario i dont see anything wrong with your set up,guess you are fighting with rod while you cast,the lures you are using are just too light.use heavier lures intially so you get the hang of the rod use the pendulum effect to shoot your lure out rather then a forced cast which sometimes will have the rod out of your hand.Casting is a skill and requires patience and practise its not good to blame your instrument if you cannot play good music.
