A little help needed

Recommended Posts

Hello all. Just getting back into fishing, and am really interested in doing some top water lure fishing. My only rod right now is a basic $35 Quantum spincasting rod and reel combo. I was wondering if I should look into a different kind of reel for this type of fishing, and if so, which kind? Something for more accurate casting? But also, I do not have a large budget either. So just looking for a good reel (and rod?) for accurate casting for top water lure fishing. Unless of course my spincaster should work fine for this. Thanx guys.

BTW, it will mostly be lake fishing I do, and from the shorelines, as I do not have a boat. I am near the Delaware River and may do some river fishing, but the majority of my fishing will be in lakes in my area.

This is from a thread running a few lines down:

All this can be pretty confusing. If you want to go back through

this section, you can find advice on just about every brand and

combination offered. So, to cut to the chase, here's some specific



All of the major retailers have "in-house" brand rods. The best

"value" is a combination rod & reel on sale. Select any

combo which includes the Shimano Symetre 2500FJ. For an

"all-around" rod, choose one that is 6 1/2' or 7' Medium Power/

Fast Action.

Up-grade For Life:

This is a combination you will never grow out of: Shimano Stradic

2500FI with a St. Croix Avid AVS68MXF.

Whichever combination you buy, spool it up Yo-Zuri Hybrid or

Hybrid Ultra Soft #6 (.010" diameter, 11.9 lb test). I also like

all line treated with KVD Line & Lure Conditioner.

Good luck!
