Sometimes the best way to catch saltwater fish is to keep your feet firmly planted on the ground. Don’t have a boat? No problem. Surf fishing is fun, easy and exciting. Best of all, you can land all kinds of deep sea lunkers, including mackerel, flounder, striped bass and rockfish right from shore.
Surf fishing involves standing on a beach and casting out into the water or surf. Thy key to success is learning how to surf cast. The most common maneuver is the overhand cast. To accomplish this, grasp your rod and bend your arm up to a 90-degree angle, and then flick out the pole toward the water. As you take this forward motion, straighten your arm to send the bait as far out into the water as you can. With just a little practice, you will learn the precise amount of power and speed you need to get the perfect distance and accuracy down.
It’s important to choose the right kind of fishing gear for surf fishing and that means a surf fishing rod and reel. Many companies compete for business in this sector, but industry insiders and experienced fisher people are keen on Tsunami surf rods.
For example, the Tsunami Airwave Elite surf spinning rod has incorporated a number of high-tech design modifications using cutting-edge materials to put together a surf fishing rig that is uniquely designed to maximize surf fishing efficiency and fun.
Tsunami surf rods leverage a groundbreaking high-pressure rolling production technique that creates high-fiber density blanks that are super strong while adding no excess weight. Normally, a thick, heavy blank (the backbone or spine of the rod) means stiff, heavy construction. However, Tsunami surf rods have solved the problem by using advanced high-fiber density materials.
It makes for rods with extreme flexibility, minimal weight yet nearly unbreakable strength for landing even huge fish in a surf fishing setting.
