Our range of sea fishing rods covers Beachcasters, Boat Rods, Bass/Spinning Rods, Kayak Rods and Telescopic/Travel Rods.
Beachcaster Sea Fishing Rods
Beachcasters are probably the most popular of all the sea fishing rods. Although named 'beachcasters', these sea fishing rods are also used when Pier fishing and Rock fishing. Ranging from 12ft in length, beachcaster sea fishing rods can be used to catch a whole list of fish species from the shore. Probably the most popular being Mackerel in the summer and Cod in the winter. If you are just starting out in sea fishing and do not have access to a boat, fishing from the beach is probably a good place to start and for this you will need a beachcaster rod and reel.
Boat Sea Fishing Rods
Boat sea fishing rods are now available in a number of different sizes and weight classes. There's now a boat rod to suit just about every boat fishing situation including 'uptiding'. Ranging from 6ft to 9ft in length, boat rods are generally available in weight classes from 12lb all the way up to 100lb. In the UK however, most boat fishing situations require either a very light rod of around 12-20lb or something a little heavier of around 30-50lb. A good all rounder being the 20-30lb class boat rod.
Bass & Spin Sea Fishing Rods
Both bass and spin sea fishing rods are of lighter construction than your average beachcaster and will typically have a casting weight as low as 25 grams up to approx 130 grams depending on the rod. Some of our sea fishing requires a more delicate approach and not all fishing is about casting a baited rig as far out as we can from the shore. There are some fish that actually do feed very close in. The Bass sea fishing rods for instance are designed to cast a lighter weight and rig, closer to the shore, say less than 50 yards out. Particularly when bass fishing, less complicated tackle is also preferred. There is no better feeling than holding a slim light bass rod, while standing in the surf, waiting for that almighty take as a bass launches fully committed into your bait. The same too can also be said for spinning or lure sea fishing rods. These rods are somewhere between 8ft and 12ft and typically resemble a freshwater rod; ultra slim and again designed to cast a very light weight or lure. If you are going on holiday this summer and fancy having a go at sea fishing, its definitely worth taking a spinning rod with you for some adrenaline pumping light sea fishing with a lure.
Kayak Fishing Rods
Kayak fishing is fast becoming the next big fishing phenonemon around the UK. Specialist kayak fishing rods are already available and offer the kayak angler a shorter fishing rod to safely enjoy a days fishing in the yak.
Kayak rods are generally shorter than the average boat rod, some measuring less than 3 feet in length while still maintaining a sensitive tip action and enough power in the lower half of the rod to tame the biggest of cod or the wildest of bass. Short boat and spinning rods are also very popular amongst kayak anglers as these are so much easier to store within the yak and offer the angler an alternative style of fishing. Popular fishing methods while afloat include plugging for bass and jigging. These two techniques can be extremely productive, especially as the adventurous kayak angler can fish closer to where the larger fishing boats just cant reach!
Telescopic and Travel Sea Fishing Rods
Telescopic and Travel sea fishing rods cover all of the rods listed above, Beachcasters, Boat rods, Bass rods and Spinning rods. As the names suggests, telescopic and travel sea fishing rods are very easy to store and carry and are, in a lot of cases, ideal for taking on holiday. If you are a keen beach angler and are going abroad, you can still take these sea fishing rods with you stored in your suitcase. The Salt Travel beach rod for example is 11.6ft and made of 6 equal sections and will actually fit into a suitcase or travel bag.
