Is it time for new fishing gear? Well, allow us to help! Before purchasing one of your unbeatable custom-made fishing rods form Signature Fishing Rods, there are some questions you should be asking yourself first!

Because we want you to have the best results with your new fishing rod, here is a list of questions you should ask yourself before choosing your fishing rod and equipment: Fishing Equipment

What Species Are You Targeting and Where Are You Going to Target Them?

One of the most important questions you should ask yourself before purchasing any new gear is what fish are you looking to catch? And where will you be catching them? Are you going to fish in rivers, lakes, saltwater, etc.? Answering these simple questions will help you narrow down your rod choices, and our professional team will be able to match you with the appropriate rod.

Do You Have a Preferred Method of Fishing?

Now that we’ve answered the basic questions, it’s now time to figure out how you want to catch your fish. If you’re an experienced angler, you probably have a preferred fishing method that you feel more confident using. Do you plan on using lures, bait, or both? Do you prefer casting?

Although these seem like minor details, they’re very important when choosing new fishing gear. Typically, fishing rods are designed to suit a particular fishing method, and they’re defined by the reel or rig that works the best with the setup.

Do You Know What Kind of Lure You Want to Use?

Two fishing techniques that anglers often try out are jigging and rigging. When you use a jig as a lure, you can catch fish like bass, muskie, northern pike, and walleye. Usually, for this style of fishing, you’ll need a sensitive blank, a lightweight rod with a medium light to medium power, fast to extra-fast tip.

On the other hand, if you’re eager to give rigging a try, you should select a longer rod with light tip action and rod power.
