Sea bass & other sea fishing rods

Sea bass fishing has only grown in popularity in recent years. This is not so surprising, because it is a great sport fish that also tastes delicious. There are several ways to fish this spectacular sea fish. As a real predator, lures like pilkers, crankbaits and shads are the outspoken bait to catch the sea bass. To present this, there are special sea bass rods for each discipline.

Sea bass fishing from the shore

Because you often have to bridge quite a distance from the shore, you can't avoid using a bass rod with a length between 3.00 m. and 3.60 m. This seems a lot for the relatively small lures you use. Just to make long lures with this you need a longer rod. Also don't forget that you often fish close to obstacles like rocks and/or basalt blocks and then you won't need a 2 meter spinning rod. The combination of rod and throwing weight is therefore completely different from freshwater fishing. For this way of sea bass fishing you always take a sea fishing rod with more power than the weight of the lure itself. You often have to deal with currents which also requires extra power from the rod. A seabass plug or pilker of about 30 grams is normally sufficient to handle a lot of conditions. In freshwater a spinning rod with a power of 15 to 50 grams is more than enough. Sea fishing requires double that, so around 100 grams is quite common. A special sea bass rod has a strong backbone, but an extremely sensitive top, so you can keep feeling everything. With such a rod, in combination with the right seabass mill and the thin but oh so strong braided dyneema fishing line you can be extremely successful.
Would you like to try sea bass fishing from the shore but don't want to buy a special rod for it? Then we advise you to use a carp rod, this is a much used, cheaper alternative. The carp rod has the right length and casting weight for sea bass fishing. The disadvantage of a carp rod is the stiffness and weight of the rod. But you can certainly catch sea bass with it!

Sea bass from the boat

Sea bass fishing from a boat is close to lure fishing on the freshwater predators. Of course there are some differences. A special seabass rod is resistant to the salty water and the seabass mill is also more resistant to this. Of course you can also use a heavier plug-rod or a heavier spinning rod from the boat, but clean it well after a day of salt. Because with this fishery you don't have to bridge long distances, you take a not too long fishing rod. A long rod is very clumsy in a boat and therefore it is advisable to take a rod that is no longer than 2.40 M / 8 ft. Because it is easier to get to the fish, a rod with a throwing capacity of between 30 and 60 grams is sufficient. This relatively low casting weight means that the average boat rod is not suitable, with some exceptions of course.
The combination of rod, spinning mill and fishing line must be perfect. The sea bass is a hard fighter who demands everything from your equipment. Again, pilkers, crankbaits and shads are the best lures. This rover has a hard mouth, so you need a rod body to set the hook. Even though the sea bass is a shoal of fish and there are regular food cuts, he can also be very careful. Fast fishing is a solution and the use of an almost invisible fluorocarbon pre-stroke is desirable.
