Bass Fishing – Bait Casting pole to attach to my Shimano Citica?
I can’t wait to start fishing! Just purchased my Shimano Citica, thanks to much of the help I’ve received from all of you.
But now.. I need a pole. I’m probably only willing to spend 60-70$, since I’m low now.. but that should be enough?
Thanks for all of your help!
Think about purchasing an “in-house” or “house-branded” rod from a company like Gander Mt, Cabelas, Bass Pro Shops, Etc.
That is the best way to get the most for your dollar AND most house-branded rods come with a “no questions asked” 1-2 year return policy.
Here are some examples:
1. Gander Mt- http://search.gandermountain.com/?Ne=1000002&N=2144+4294966341&cname=Rods
2. Bass Pro Shop- http://www.basspro.com/Bass-Pro-Shops-Bionic-Blade-Trigger-Rods/product/98371/-1432110
3. Cabelas- http://www.cabelas.com/product/Fishing/Fishing-Rods/Casting-Rods|/pc/104793480/c/104764680/sc/104823180/Cabelas-Prodigy174-Casting-Rods/703905.uts?destination=%2Fcatalog%2Fbrowse%2Ffishing-fishing-rods-casting-rods%2Fcabelas%2F_%2FN-1102351%2B4294967225%2FNe-4294967225%2FNs-CATEGORY_SEQ_104823180%3FWTz_l%3DSBC%253BMMcat104793480%253Bcat104764680%26WTz_st%3DGuidedNav%26WTz_stype%3DGNU&WTz_l=SBC;MMcat104793480;cat104764680;cat104823180
This is the perfect time of the year to start looking for a rod. Sales are everywhere! If you don’t want an in-house rod think about getting one of these:
A. Abu Garcia, Vendetta
B. Berkley, Shock Series- These are well within your price range, are durable, are VERY sensitive and light, and have a decent reputation. Within your price range I’d suggest you look seriously at these- http://www.basspro.com/Berkley-Lightning-Rod-Shock-Series-Trigger-Rods/product/104157/-1548363
Hope this helps ya?
