How far do I cast my beach caster

How far do I need to cast to catch the fish, is a question I often hear!

Well you need to know where the food, shelter and fish are. Research the species your fishing for and look for areas where they may gather. Cod hunt closer to the shore at night, Bass will hunt for bait fish in really shallow water, Wrasse generally hang around close to rocks etc.

If you don’t know a fishing mark and you have two beach casters, or even 1 beach caster and a spinning rod take them both to the fishing mark, cast one as far as you can and plonk one in just 10 foot out into the sea. Then each cast with the long range rod cast less distance each time, and with the close rod cast a bit further each time covering the fishing ground until they meet. When this happens start again but cast to the left for the next set and so on until you have covered the seabed in search of you prize fish.

Happy fishing.

    Hey there,

    Nice post. I’m a recreational fisher who unlike you (I’m guessing), doesn’t take it too seriously. Don’t get me wrong, fishing is one of my favorite past times, but I’m not one to spend gads and gads of money on each new lure or reel that hits the shelves. However, it is about time for me to upgrade to a new rod and maybe a new tacklebox as well. I was curious if you knew of any good, moderately priced rods and reels that are high quality and worth their money, but that won’t cost me an arm and a leg? I tried talking to one of the salespeople at the local sporting goods store, but I felt as if he was just trying to sell me on the most expensive thing they had, even though I told him I was trying to stay within a certain price range. I’ve looked around for some guides online and found some useful ones, like this article (, but I am particularly interested in your opinion since you seem to know what you’re talking about. What would you reccomend for a “budget fisherman” like myself. All things being equal, do you tend to prefer composite or fiberglass rods? I also do most of my fishing on dry land, but some of my fishing buddies who do most of their fishing from on board a boat have told me there is a difference in rod performance when you move into deeper waters. What’s your take on this? Accurate or just an old wive’s tale? I’d love to hear any advice you may be able to give. Thanks in advance for any help with these questions.
