Beach rods, or beachcasters, are also sometimes referred to as surf rods. Beachcasters are usually long (upwards of 10ft), as they have to be able to cast through the surf. Casting beyond the surf has results that are two fold. Firstly, the fish will congregate in the area behind the surf. Secondly, casting into white water means your bait is going to be dragged around. Like all angling, you want your bait to remain as stationary as possible, so casting beyond the surf into stiller waters decreases the likelihood of your bait getting dragged away from your target.

 

As you’re casting out beyond the surf, you’ll also have to pull the fish in back through the surf. This means that most beach rods are designed with performance strength in two areas: distance and power.

 

Beach rods are usually compared to oversized spinning or bait casting rods, but they have a longer grip handle for two handed casting so the angler can get the most distance out of the rod. The longer the rod is, the longer the distance you’ll be able to achieve, and the less time you’ll have to spend re-casting as your rod won’t get dragged with the current as often. The average beachcaster is fast action, with a stiff butt section, to give greater casting distances. Continental style beachcasters are even longer – up to 18ft – and are increasingly popular on the British shoreline. Bass rods are, as the name suggests, typically used to catch sea bass, and are a softer version of the standard beachcaster.
