Hi Guys

I am planning to start the spinning fishing shortly. I was about to buy the rod and reel yesterday but a friend of mine told me that the spinning from shore is only good for barracuda and it is not even worth as you cant do spinning every time of the year as it has its seasons...

Is what I was told true? Since I dont understand much about spinning, I will appreciate your advice before I go ahead with the purchasing of the rod & reel.

Thanks

every fishing method have it's season! Spinning is a fishing method not only good for barracudas but many other species.

it's an easy setup and non messy fishing (unless you catch fish)

the beauty of spinning is that you can have a rod and reel set up which you can leave in your car and every now and then try different places.

Spinning enthusiasts know what this is all about ........ go on get your equipment ready ....... start browsing different topics and you'll see

agree with placebo.... Lots of fish to target... Blue runners, amberjack, little tunnies, lampuki, atlantic bonito, sea bass....and the list goes on.

Thanks for the advice guys...

Another question, do we need to use different lures for different species?

Is spinning during the day useless?

not at all.... You'll still get some action from blue runners' leerfish and maybe small serra.... And anything juvenile, please catch and release!

@sargos.... Yes, there are differant lures for differant species, however, there are a couple of all rounder lures you should keep with you...

just caught a small jack 30 from the shore on a 9cm xrap rapala. It was about 7 o clock this morning.

so it is working during the day (at least early) and not only barracuda.

and if you have a light rod it gives you a nice bend in the rod.

I go spinning every time i can go, maybe from Feb to April are not so productive but cuda's are here all year.For eg. Last year i caught a 1.5kg cuda xmas eve morning.


When mr fish brought yamashita rep for light spinning he tried it at all times of the day even at midday and he SAID he caught fish too so it is worth to try and experiment

Fish can be caught all day.  Yesterday I was spinning with 3g jig heads, with some Gary Yamamoto 2" Grubs and 4lb braid.  Bottom bouncing them for whatever comes at 4pm and people swimming around me.  Caught a few weaver fish ( after which some people around me decided not to go back in the water ) and even a small Xurghien.  All rigorously Catch and Release!

You can but don't expect St Peter to let you into heaven! That is a sacrilege.

Joke's apart, if you are spinning with a rod that is good for bottom fishing, I think you're using a rod that is too, heavy and stiff.

be sure the rod is good for braid or it might ruin the guides, because i got a shimano alivo and now i found out its no good for braid(i asked at fishing frenzy) and choose a light one. a heavy one will get you tired easily. like you i'm still a beginer and i didn't know what to go for. take your time and choose the right equipment.
