Casting fishing is a method of catching a predator that is becoming more and more popular around the world. No wonder, because the casting techniques used during casting are extremely comfortable, they enable long and accurate casts, and the ergonomics of such a set and the comfortable grip make our fishing very pleasant. It is worth noting that casting fishing is a very effective method for catching many predators - pike, zander, catfish, and recently also perch and trout.
A casting rod differs from a spinning rod - in simple terms, it is a casting rod. It is most often equipped with pistol grip, colloquially also known as a claw. Another difference is the arrangement of the guides, which are located on the other side of the rod blank.
What are the most popular casting rods?
The most common casting rods are jerkbait rods - short, rarely reaching 2 meters in length, strong rods, equipped with a relatively short butt, characterized by a fast or super fast action and a very peak deflection. Their main purpose is catching pike with the use of large lipless wobblers and large soft lures. The casting weight of such a popular rod is usually 70-90 grams. We can catch most medium-sized jerkbaits with such a rod.
An extremely effective technique, especially at the beginning of the season, when the fish occupy shallow positions or we are forced to catch them above the carpet of underwater vegetation. In addition to high efficiency, such fishing is extremely spectacular, because we often have the opportunity not only to feel, but also to see a pike bite.
Autumn is the time when most predators go to deeper water in pursuit of small fish. Many anglers choose soft lures that can be presented at much greater depth. Then it is worth paying attention to the offer of slightly longer rods, giving excellent control over the lure led in the depths. Such casting rods are usually equipped with a relatively long butt section, thanks to which both the presentation of the lure and the hauling of a large fish will be more comfortable and much more effective.
Casting fishing is not only about pike and very heavy lures. Casting rods for zander or perch have been very popular for some time now. Casting jigging is a perfect example of the practicality and convenience of this method.
An equally interesting way of using casting is river fishing, in which the target of our trips will be sea trout or salmon. The leaders here are the Swedes, their specialist long casting rods, most often combined with a round profile casting reel and their spinflug fishing method.
The light version of the casting is becoming more and more popular, as it allows the use of lighter and lighter lures, which, combined with the handyness of the rig and the accuracy of the casting techniques used in casting, becomes a great choice when hunting for trout, chub or even perch.
A rod with a baitcasting reel
is the perfect solution for anglers who want to fish vertically, and it must be admitted that recently this method has no equal when looking for big zander or powerful catfish. Casting rigs provide the sensitivity and responsiveness that is almost essential when fishing for zander.
