Are you about to buy some a fishing rod? Fishing rods comes in many different shapes and sizes for each particular fishing use. Inland lake, small pond, salty backwater, saltwater ocean, the surf or deep sea are several fishing locations. Where you will be fishing is an important consideration before buying your rod. In addition, you need to consider the fish species and the fish size in order to buy the right rod.

Rods for fishing in inland pond and large lakes

If you intend to do fishing in an inland pond, carp, trout, perch and crappie are the species you may target. It is easy to catch these species using a light road-and-reel combination. A spinning reel is the choice of many for this sort of fishing. A spin-cast reel is another types of fishing rods. It is a good choice for children who are learning to fishing. A 6'-7' long and lightweight rod is more than perfect for the job. Fishing in large lakes where such species as steelhead, salmon, trout and pike walleye are found requires specific fishing gear.

How to choose and buy a fishing rod?

Knowing how to choose and buy fishing rods helps a lot. Make sure to check if the rod offers a strong and firm grip. Do check if the handle is of the suitable size to fit in your palm. Don’t ignore the length of rod. It too is a considerable factor. 4.5-6 foot long tackles are lighter and suitable for catching such fish species as crappie and perch.

If fishing in brushy areas is your intention, choose shorter rods. Rods of 6.5 feet in length are ideal for bigger baits and rougher fish species like catfish and bass. The fishing rods should be flexible enough to be used conveniently. Flip the end to examine flexibility while holding the rod in your hand.

Which scaler is a good use?

A fish scaler makes the process of scraping and removing scales from both sides of fish a simple and easy one. You can buy de-scaled fish from the market. But you need to scrape the scales yourself, if you catch a fish. Knowing how to use a scaler tool helps.

Fish scalers come is several types. Some are handheld instruments as simple as a knife and suitable for use in household kitchens. Some others are motorized appliances used at commercial places like restaurants. Choose a specific fish scaler model.

How to use a scaler?

Make sure to grip the handle of a handheld scaler tight. Drag the scaler smoothly down the body of the fish from tail to head and make short strokes to scrap and remove the scales. An electric hand-held scaler makes this process much easier. This type of scaler is an electric battery operated model and has a rotating tip that strips the scales off with ease. Electric fish scalers are designed for use when you're out fishing so you don't have to worry about scaling your catch when you get home.

If fishing is a means of livelihood for you, know doubt you will be using a commercial fish scaler. It consists of a large drum which tumbles, and the scales of fish are pulled off by the drum's rough sides. Take the fish out of the drum, once the process is completed.
