Armjr,<P>Hello. I am taking up bass fishing this summer. My dad and I used to just do the trout/salmon thing. I am open to any and all tips you have to offer. Any suggestions on a rod and reel combo under $100?<P>Wade

Wade,<P>If you're going to get into bass fishing you're going to have to get over the money thing. By the time you're outfitted right you'll undersatnd the old saying that a "Bass Boat is a hole in the water that you throw money into". <P>Seriously, as a starter I would say get a Name brand baitcasting reel on sale at academy or Oshmans or some other large chain. They disontinue models and sell them cheap. Then for a rod get an "Ugly Stick" in a medium action straight handle. I like the nbreakable feature of these rods. <P>Then get a reg tackle box and a bunch of those clear plastic trays with lids for your worms. A spinner box is good too if you have extra room.<P>More later. <P>armjr

Wade, a good Garcia 3 or 4 ball bearing casting reel will cost you $60 to $90 at Wally World, and here they are discontinuing the Renagade graphite and selling them out for $13, a steal for that rod. I have graphites that cost $100 and more but look for the lightest weight rod, medium or heavy action you can afford, also pick a small spool reel for bass fishing, one that just holds 100 - 125 yards of line in the weight line you will be using. Now if this rod and reel will be a combination and used on heavy fish buy larger. Questions, just ask, there are enough bass fishermen here to answer. Like hunting and rifles, fishing rods and reels are a matter of choice. Northern states have smaller fish and can take lighter tackle and line, in the South with warmer weather most of the year bass grow larger. -- no


A hint to the wise is sufficient! Experience is the best teacher!

no bass yet...


Whatever you are willing to put up with, is exactly what you will have.

When your ship comes in. ... make sure you are willing to unload it.

PAYPAL, sucks and I will never use them again. I recommend you do the same.
