Fishing for bass and other species on spinning tackle seems to frustrate folks. A few simple things to consider will make spinning gear more acceptable for more anglers.


  1. Is that okay if i use 8 pound braid with no leader on a smaller river? We are fishing for trout and walleye.

  2. Can you give any advise on when to use spinning equipment VS baitcasting equipment? I’ve used nothing but a spinning rig for every type of lure when bass fishing, that’s just what I grew up on and have been used to. But I see the pros rarely using a spinning rig it seems like. Are spinning rigs mainly for crankbaits, spinnerbaits, etc? Any reply would be great, as this is something that has always confused me. Oh yeah….SUBBED..Thanks!

  3. Most pros use baitcasters to use bigger lines and heavier baits. After about 10 pounds line gets hard to manage on spinning gear unless you use braid. So guys will go to bigger lines and bigger baits with baitcasters. For me personally I will fish senkos, shaky heads, drop shots on spinning gear and maybe small light crankbaits or jerkbaits that I fish on light line in clear water. Baitcasters I will fish just about everything else.

  4. The ending was awesome. Not so much for the fish, but it’s definitely interesting to the human viewer. 😉

  5. Okay what about spinning gear for frog fishing? Because I use 10lb mono on a mega cast spinning reel and on a diawa rod 6’6″ medium rod. But this upcoming season I’ll be doing same reel but spooled up with 50lb hi-vis powerpro with about 10-12ft of 12lb mono for the leader and shock absorption. What’s your input on that? Oh and frog choice is a 1/4 oz and the larger 1/2oz frogs hollow body.

  6. Is it okay to only use spinning rods and reels for bass fishing? because I really don’t want to use baitcasting stuff

  7. Baitcasters are just so fun and easier to handle i’m finding. Still fun to have a nice spinning combo, but bank fishing with two baitcasters is the way to go
