Beach Fishing Set Up: Don’t waste your money
I’m not sure people are going to trust this face… *huhn* Haha, you look like you’re— haha– trying to poop! Haha, stop it! Your face is getting…. *laughing* so… red… *laughing, shrieking * STOP! Hey guys, so today we’re going to be talking about how to pick our first beach fishing set up! This is for anyone who is just starting to get into beach fishing, or for anyone who is wondering what I use in my videos. Here’s my set up: This is my– this is one of my first surf rods and it’s it has held up for years. It has held up for me for years! I paid $150- $200 but it has been worth it. Okay? You can see in all my other videos that I’m using this rod when I’m salt water fishing, whether it be snook, whether it be stripers, whether it be bluefish, whether it be just- just bait fishing on the beach it works for a lot of different scenarios, and I really suggest you to get this rod. Now let’s talk about the reel that I’m using. This is a Shimano Saragosa. Um, these are Shimano’s midrange reels. I like how big the handle is because it fits real well in my hand, and um, this has lasted me for a long time too! Listen to me, guys when you spend a little bit of extra money on buying a good reel the warranty will pay for itself! I have broken this 3 times! and they ship me brand new ones every time! You know? That’s like, I got two, three free reels from them because I ordered from them. I’m serious, if you are serious about this, get yourself– invest a little bit more money, either a Saragosa, a Stratic, Twin Power, any of those, any of those reels have very good warranty. M’kay? So, the line that I typically use is… I really like braid. It casts very far, um, it’s very sensitive, and um, and it works really well for me! I like feeling the hookset with the braid because it goes, “doonk.” Now, I’m using 20 lb. braid, I usually go 20- 40 lb. braid, and it has been working out really good for me because I can cast it really frikkin far. *sneezing* The first time I ever went surf fishing I was, uhm… probably seven, with my Dad… Uhh, we go vacationing in a place called Cabo San Lucas, it’s on the very tip of Baja California, um, it is a wonderful place to surf fish. There are just plentiful fish, lady fish, rooster fish, jacks, those are all my favorite kinds of fish to catch, and I didn”t really realize, but that was a really… awesome experience… When I was like, that young, you know, you can’t really comprehend… I feel like it was all a blur to me… and I didn’t really get to fully appreciate it… um… but now I have refound my love of fishing. And I’ve kind of rediscovered it on my own, without my Dad. And that’s, that’s a big difference. When you find something and you learn something on your own, versus when someone is guiding you the whole time… it’s a little different. So… I’ve really found that… surf fishing is… something that everyone should experience. You’re staring out into the ocean, you’re staring out into what seems to be the end of the land, and it really humbles you… and that’s why I really like surf fishing! It’s–it’s just… It’s a crazy phenomenon, it’s… It’s a way I really like to connect with nature. What are some reasons you guys like surf fishing? What is your favorite part about surf fishing? I’d like to hear it below! I’d like to tell you, uh, my favorite part about surf fishing, which is, um… When the fish run through, you can really see… a huge change in everything. And, um, you see the birds flying and diving, you see even, you know, as the sun rises, usually, is when these fish come through, and it’s just kind of like everything around you comes alive… That bird has a fish! (It’s got a fish!) I don’t have my lense! So, in conclusion, if you wanna start really getting into beach fishing, this is the setup I recommend: a Shimano Saragosa, a St. Croix Mojo Surf 9 foot rod, if you want a nice, versatile setup that you can do bait fishing and plug fishing, this is the setup to get. Now, I haven’t really done a video like this before, and I’m wondering if you guys find this helpful, and if you do find it helpful it would be very helpful for me uh, if you let me know that it was helpful! That’s all I’m asking, just let me know if this was helpful or not, um, and… and also you should subscribe!
