How to Cast Bait Far for Surf Fishing

Post by Admin on Mon 15 Feb - 20:15

Lets look at the principals required to cast:

1. Face your left foot in the direction of the cast, with your right foot in a comfortable position for balance. Twist your waist past your right foot as the more your body twists, the more power you will generate.

2. Extend your right arm so that the tip of the rod is far back therefore allowing you to load the rod more and generate more power.

3. Now its like a golf swing, Weight on the back foot, balanced on the left. Start moving your weight forward as you twist your body and cast. This action will provide more power. 4. Load the rod. You can either swing the rod in an arc from the desired end direction to behind you with the sinker loading the rod tip, or you can load the rod by swinging the sinker so that its beyond the rod tip and loading the tip as well.

5. The rod needs to be effectively loaded by beginning the cast slowly with a gradual acceleration until maximum speed is reached just prior to stopping the rod.

6. The sinker will now go in the direction of the rod tip just before it was stopped.

7. It is important that the rod tip is not lowered or raised again above the departure of the line from the rod tip.

8. The longer the rod and the longer the casting stroke, the more the rod can be loaded and the further you can cast.

Some important notes.

1. You will need to match your rod, reel and line weight. Check the guides normally printed on the rod and reel.

2. The terminal weight must also match the rod and line weight.

3. It will be a good idea to use a shock leader with at least a few turns on the spool. The greatest load is generated when the line starts leaving the spool.

4. Practice, practice. Find a field and practice on it.

5. Direction, accuracy and technique will come with practice.

6. Don't use brute force, rather be smooth. Start slowly and accelerate through the cast.

Re: How to Cast Bait Far for Surf Fishing

What im wonder is,ive heard having a flatter plan on the arch of the cast is better for your back in the long term and charges the rod better than over head(john holden sea angler mag) but i normally cast over head and i think i have reached as far as that technique can go for my physique ive moved onto off the ground with 2meter trace lenght for extra charge..are there simpler ways of charging the rod without doing permanant damage?
