    Default Bought my first Bait caster today,instead of kayak

    Ive decided all the kayaks i want are in the 400-600$ range so I've started to save.
    In the meantime i bought a bait caster.

    I bought an abu-garcia silvermaxx
    and a field and stream tec-spec casting rod

    I spent a total of $91

    The rod was on sale for 50$ and if you bought a reel 50$ or over you got 50% off a field and stream rod

    so far i am very happy with my purchase it looks and feels great, i got the bigger rod 7 foot 6 inches.

    congrats, once you get used to it you will notice all of your reels starting to be baitcasters... i got my first one in june of 2010 and now own 5 and am getting a 6th, i've got one new spinning reel in that time span to put it in perspective lol

    I think you will enjoy that silver max. I just got one a month or so ago, and I paired mine with the berkley lightning rod - shock series 7 footer. Its a breeze to cast and ultra smooth retrieve.

    I caught one bass about 2 pounds on a white trick worm texas rigged with a size 4 red worm hook

    i was using moss green power pro 30 pound test, rod casts great for a beginner like myself i had very few backlashes and was very impressed
