I was hoping you guys can shed some light....


Recommended Posts

I was fishing with some friends from work yesterday and I was told by one of my coworkers that " you were all wrong yesterday, you cannot throw a crankbait on a spinning rod, it does not run correctly on spinning gear."  

I was like I don't understand I have never heard that ever in my life.  My coment back to him was that I have been successful using crankbaits with spinning gear and Baitcasting gear and I could not tell you that there was a difference at all.  

Am I correct in my view or is baitcasting gear better for crankbait fishing?

Some guys are more comfortable using a baitcaster or spinning tackle for certain lures or techniques, but there is no "functional" reason why either type of equipment can't be used.

That's a pretty wild statement from your friend.  Many people use spinning gear for crankbaits.  Some people prefer spinning gear when throwing very light crankbaits because there is no chance of backlash.  I use both.  As RW stated, there is no functional reason why either one won't do the job.

I think you already know the answer.

You can't force a Republican to vote Democrat,

and you can't force me to throw crankbaits with casting gear  ;)
