hello

i would like to buy a rod for shore fishing.  it seems that rods are divided into light, medium and heavy action...what should i be looking for?

i usually use a pater noster when boat fishing....however, people fishing from shore seem to use a float...i've never used this before...am i correct that i can't use a paternoster with a float...?

thanks

hi sg,

the technique used when using a float is called running float...if you are going to fish somewhere which really is rocky etc (iwehhel al a**a), it is the best you can use to prevent swearing Smiley

In some cases pater noster with lead at the bottom is more effective in my opinion.

With regards to rod...i suggest you buy a fast action maybe somewhere between 5g-25g with a .20/.22 line should be perfect on coastal areas Wink

i only know how to use pater noster, however, it seems you cannot reach very far out with this system - or maybe I do not know how to throw the line well enough - so I will need to learn how to use a running float...

no luck yet, i'm using a pole float with a couple of stoppers, with size 11 or so hooks, dried worms, and a small weight (size 1) attached in a pater noster style..Sad seems that i must be doing something/s wrong

some shrimps might do the trick. 1euro shrimps will get you enough to have a try

when you go fishing...and you want to catch something for sure...you should somewhere rocky. Buy Live Korean worms from any local fish shops in malta...try using those...should get lucky with something. (P.S THough you should know that it isn't that good for bottom fishing this time of year Wink )

running float should be good...try using different baits like...shrimps, worms or some bread. Give us feedback of your catches Tongue
