We have rods, reels and accessories for anyone doing this kind of fishing or wanting to start.
This is a major form of sport fishing along many of the beaches in Europe and the rest of the world. It involves long rods of 14 feet or more and reels with good line capacity. A skilled surfcaster can manage to cast the bait over 200 meters out from the shore. This is why it is often referred to as a long distance bait fishing.
These are mainly bottom baits with special loops that grip the sandy bottom and weigh from 100 gr. and upwards to more than double that. It is common with two rods and one or two hooks behind the lure that are attached to the bait. A tripod rod stand is used in which the rods stand at an angle upwards. Never leave the rods with the brake on. Large fish are often tempted to take the bait.
Major championships are organized in this form of fishing and several countries have their own national teams.
