At a Glance: Surf Rods
Surf rods are typically used in beach settings and are longer in length to allow you to cast over the waves coming to shore. There are several types of surf rod and reel combinations to choose from depending on what type of fish are in your region, as well as different weights of line and tackle. Because surf fishing conditions change with location, fishermen must be sure to use line and tackle with the correct weight for the fish they are targeting.
The most popular brands of surf rods offered at FishUSA include Daiwa, G. Loomis, Lamiglas, Okuma, Penn and St. Croix.
