Hey there everyone.
Im new to bass fishing, I started this past summer. I have one 6'6'' Medium Power fast action spinning rod and I love it. I have 8LB mono spooled on it right now.
To tell you the truth thats the only line Iv'e ever fished with. I use the rod for Cenco's Wackey Rigged and Texes Rigged. I also fish for pan fish on this rod. Bought it at Canadian tire for cheap, it's worked great though. I am thinking of getting a baitcasting rod and reel. I know they can be hard to use at first. I have practiced with my neighbors baitcaster and I like it. So I know the basics of them. It was a 6'6'' Medium/Heavy fast action. 6:3:1 gear ratio witch was a little to slow for my taste. I am wondering as a second rod should I get a Medium Power Baitcaster or a Medium/ Heavy Baitcaster. Or maybe something different.
I have heard something about the baitcasting rods have more backbone in them whether this is true or not.
Alot of people on YouTube are saying to have the rod I have now and a Medium Power Baitcaster and a Medium/Heavy Power Baitcaster to get of to a good start.
Im on a budget so I can't afford two more rods right off the bat.
So overall I am wondering what you guys think I should get.
P.S Keep in mind I am a bank fisherman.
