How far should I be able to cast?

Recommended Posts

What is considered good casting distance for a spinning reel,,say 2500 size,8# line, 3/8 oz lure on a 7 foot rod. How about a casting reel,7 foot rod, any decent reel,and 14# line,5/8 oz lure? This would be with normal casting effort.

25-30 yards is a normal casting distance.

It really is hard to tell, or 'judge' how far you are casting.  As long as you feel you are getting a good cast you should be good.  Too long of a cast can result in botched hooksets as anyway.

Actually any target distance that you can make accurately, and still make good solid hooksets (maybe 25-30yds)... IMPO to long of a cast does result in a lack of accuracy, and a lot of missed hook sets.

My point is quit chasing noises half a pond away.....

Muddy's line is funny, but still the truth. I never cast any farther than the stump, rock, bush, drop-off or dock where I think the fish live. LOL
