Surf fishing is increasingly becoming one of the most popular angling sports in the U.S. For many anglers, surf fishing is the absolute peak of fishing. I find it extremely calming and unique to stand directly in the waves and cast my reel. The choice of the fishing rod is one factor that stops many anglers in their tracks. Surf rods are specialized fishing equipment. Generally, the best surf fishing rod is longer than a pole but lighter than other types of rods. You might require rods up to nine inches long in some areas. However, nine-inch rods may not be adequate for some areas.
Some experiences are required to use even the smallest surf fishing rod. The length of your surf fishing rod is determined by how far you want to cast your line and lure beyond the breakers. Additional length might come in handy for beginners.
