Adley,  perhaps I should have looked at your profile BEFORE I made a smart aleck response.   Didn't realize you're a bit young.  Please don't take too much offense.  Stick around and soak up all you can.  Read, read, read.  Your questions have been answered and will be answered again and again.

tackle you use most:  Keitech Swing Impact on spinning rod.  15lb braid with a 8-10lb Fluoro leader.
Tell us how you fish it or use and where!:  Great bank beating bait.  I can cover a ton of water with it.  Also can cover various depths based on the VMC half moon jig I put on.   I have caught fish as deep as in 10 FOW using this setup.
Explain why we should buy it!  It flat out gives you the best of both worlds.  A bait that covers a lot of water.  That is finesse enough to attract numbers.  Also catches big fish.
And what you have caught with it!! LMB, SMB, Rock Bass, Pike, Pickeril, Crappie, Yellow Perch, Carp (that was fun and unexpected)

 

What I didn't catch made me cry ... I was in Texas trying to get my 1st Gar using the keitech.  It would follow and then go away.  Changed colors but it wouldn't budge.  I was hoping for that 1st Gar.  :)

 

Welcome to bass fishing!  Trust me you would regret it.  Be ready to work hard for all the toys you want.

Wow.  Eleven years old and posting on a fishing forum.  Welcome.  Guess you must love to fish as much as I did at that age...and younger.....except there were no computers back then for me to cruise through fishing websites.

 

There are plenty of fishing articles to be found at the top.  Often rod power and rod action (as well as lines) are mentioned, and why they are preferred.  Various techniques are discussed.  There are also articles on tackle including rods, reels and different baits and how to use them.  They will provide you with hours of reading.  Enjoy.

 

There is no reason for you to buy the tackle I use as there are plenty of other options that will work just as well.  (Also much of my tackle is no longer being produced.)  I can recommend a couple rod series.  Fenwick HMG and Smallmouth Elite Tech (when you can find one) are great rods for the money.  There are plenty of "best $100 or less" rod threads for your entertainment.  Do a search for $100 or less casting reels.  Many threads.  Spinning reel threads are also available at different cost points.  I can recommend the Pflueger President...or the Trion for even less...as excellent low cost admittance into the world of spinning.  An excellent starter rod is the Berkley Lightning.  Some excellent fisherman use them even though they can afford more expensive.  I still use a 6' Lightning and Penn 430SS that are in the 35-40 year old neighborhood.  Both are still favorites.

 

I primarily bass fish now, but am not against any other kind of fishing, and am more than willing to land any other type of fish.  :teeth:  Well, I am not particularly fond of catching eels anymore.  :No:

 

Two of my most used lures are spinnerbaits and large worms.  Depending on lure size (and size of fish), I have caught everything from bluegills to a musky with spinnerbaits.  The smaller ones I use to use constantly were called Beetlespins.  Another favorite lure for panfish was a Roostertail.  Light line and light or ultralight spinning rods were the preferred weapons.

 

When in Florida fishing with my brother-in-law, the worms normally are being thrown an a MHF baitcast rod and the reel will be spooled with 40# braid as I will be casting into lily pads and other junk.  Locally the same lure may or may not be thrown with the same line depending on cover.  My other line choice is a 12# mono or co-polymer with the same power/action rod.

 

Most of my rods are suitable for several types of lures.  Currently I only have 2 outfits that are dedicated to specific lures or lure types.  A Daiwa Ballistic 7'7" MR and Daiwa Sol with 10# mono are dedicated to shallow and medium depth crankbaits.  It may get a Daiwa Alphas (or a different Sol) with 8# mono.  A 6' MHF Berkley Lightning and Daiwa Procaster with 15# mono are dedicated primarily to 1/2 oz. spinnerbaits for close up and targets out to about 30-35 yards.  I prefer black or black and blue colored skirts.  Not sure of the fish's preference.

 

Best of luck to you my young friend.
