Got a couple of rods and reels for Christmas and about to go get everything set on them. When you go out to practice do you stick with one lure or throw a bunch?

 

One is a crank bait rod with a 5.4 on it so I plan on throwing some cranks out there and seeing what it takes to “feel” the lure.

 

The other is a heavy 7’ with a 7.3 on it. What should I “practice” with it?

Some days I will go out to work with a single type of bait or even a single bait. Forces me to concentrate on that one till I feel confident. Buckets or sight markings in the backyard are great for casting practice with a weighted line as well.

The 7 footer would make for a good Texas rig and jig rod .  

 

Instead of practicing maybe just go fishing and  stick a few fish .Select several lures that will effectively work  in the cover and structure you encounter .  I never liked the idea of sticking with one lure just for practice .

I would just take one rod and practice with that one all day. You can never be too good at flipping, cranking, etc.

Some good ideas posted above. I would select 1-2 techniques dependent upon the time of year and focus on those. That way your not slinging a topwater when a jerkbait would be more effective.

When practicing for a tounament I'll throw almost everything at them..

If I stick one I'll shake it off, make a mental note of what, where and how I used it to find a pattern and then hit it hard..
