    Longer Fishing Rods Have Advantages

    Fishing rods 7 feet and longer are becoming more popular among anglers (myself included) that are targeting Walleye, Bass, Pike and trout and here's why;


    1. Braided super lines have created a need for longer rods that provide more shock absorption for these no-stretch lines. The longer rod compensates for the lack of stretch where using a shorter rod can cause hooks to rip out of a fish’s mouth.
    2. Longer rods make longer casts. This is important for fishing clear water. Sneaking up on fish like early season pike in shallow water with a long cast is the only way to get a bite. When matched with light line, long rods allow you to cast small baits with ease.
    3. If you are a finesse angler like me, it’s amazing how often big fish will bite small lures or baits. If you’re using small hooks on live-bait rigs for trophy walleye, or you’re catching five-pound smallmouths on crappie-sized jigs, a 7 foot-plus rod is going to help you fight the fish more efficiently and avoid tearing out those small hooks.

    Interesting. That is a good point about super lines and a longer rod. I have broken tips of my rods a lot more since using these lines and now it makes sense.
