Fish Finder

Buying for a distinct fish finder can be a daunting job for the novice fisher; even experienced boaters and anglers can be confused by the choices available. There is no one "best fish finder," and there never will be. There are dozens of models manufactured each year, and each brand and model has its strengths and place for best use.

Fishing Rods

The fishing rod is responsive at the point for bait fishing but keeps a strong backbone for hard hooksets and attracts fishing; the reel is much smooth and accommodating of braided line. When getting started, focus on getting just one or two combos that can cover a wide variety of presentations. A decent quality medium action spinning combo spooled with 10-pound monofilament is a great place to begin.

Fishing Reels
When you're buying for a reel, the first thing you require to consider is how much drag you'll demand to handle the kind of fish you wish to catch.
You're going to need a regular fishing reel and rod combo to fish like an Expert.
Drag on a spinning reel is provided by a stack of washers, which you can either tighten or loosen against the spool to build friction to reel in a fish, relieve friction to allow for play in the line or let it swim away to let the hook fully set.

Lures & Hooks

Without hooks & lures, you're not going to catch anything, so get a few different types of angles to cover everything on your bases. For panfish, simple size 6 or 8 Aberdeen hooks are excellent. If you're a bass angler, get a couple of packs of offset shank worm hooks in 3/0 or 4/0. You'll also need some split shot or sliding sinkers to keep your baits down.

Jigs

A well-informed tackle box will also have a good jig selection. From ball-head live bait jigs to skirted bass jigs – you should have different styles on hand so you can fine-tune your presentation no matter what the conditions are.
