I now live at a private lake and the bug has hit me to get back into fishing again. I'm about to purchase a kayak (pro Angler). I also want to start fishing the bays with the yak.
I am looking to purchase 2 rod/reels. I want a good spinning reel rig and a good baitcast rig. I have a $300 budget for each rig. I have few questions:
Is there a baitcast reel that will work for both fresh and salt water for bass / specs / reds??
When do you use a spinning rig vs a baitcast. My research tells me you want a baitcast for working topwater and spinning for popping corks. Can anyone elaborate please.
I would also like suggestions on rod/reel combos in that $300 price range. I've looked at Lew's and Shimano Curado for baitcast and Shimano Sahara 4000 for spinning.
Thanks in advance
