Fishing Gear for Surf Casting

The rod for this kind of fishing was described elsewhere. It should be seven and a half to nine feet long if made with the plain, long butt, and somewhat longer if with spring butt. It should be of split bamboo and should weigh in the neighborhood of twenty ounces, the weight of course depending on the length. The line should be 150 or 200 yards long and made of twisted linen, about 12 or 18 thread size. The reel should be a double multiplier made especially for this kind of fishing, with a throw-off to make it a free-spool reel when casting, and it should have a handle drag or leather brake. To the end of the line a triangular swivel is fastened and to this a six-ounce pyramidal sinker and a short leader, a foot or a little more in length and made of six strands of gut, braided. The hook is a 9/0 for red drum and striped bass. Shedder crab is used mostly, for bait. The angler should also be provided with a rod belt, having a leather or rubber cup to hold the butt of the rod, and a beach rod holder, which is a tube shaped affair with a long spike on the bottom. It is stuck into the sand and used to hold the rod when baiting, etc., for rod and reel will be injured if thrown down on the sand. The belt with rod cup is to hold the butt of the rod while waiting for a strike, also to "pump" a large fish.
