We have talked about the types of rods that are needed for saltwater fishing when you are fishing offshore whether it is trolling, bottom fishing or fly fishing. When it comes to saltwater fishing, there is also inshore fishing, surf fishing and pier fishing. We will now talk about inshore fishing and the types of rods needed for inshore fishing. Inshore fishing means that you will be fishing in shallow water, relative to how deep the ocean is and how deep offshore fishing can be. Along with the shallow water, you can expect to have smaller fish, about 20 pounds or less.

This means that you will need a rod that can handle fish that are a good size, but you don’t need to go overboard with a rig meant for large open water fish that can weigh 100 pounds or more. Inshore fishing has three types of fishing rods that are used. There is the casting rod, the spinning rod and the fly fishing rod. The casting rods are used with conventional reels and are good for use with both lures and bait. The spinning rods can do the same as the casting rods, it is just using a different type of reel. The spinning rod is not subject to line backlash like the casting rod and is a better choice for the beginning novice fisherman. Fly fishing rods are a specialty type of rod and can be purchased as a combo package. If you are new to fly fishing, get a combo kit in the 6 to 8 weight range.
