Quick Answer: What is the best surf rod and reel combo?

Is 8 foot rod good for surf fishing?

The short 8-foot and 9-foot rod lengths are good for casting plugs, jigs, and surf rigs from ½ ounce to 6 ounces. These rod lengths are good for short and mid-range casting where a quick hookset is desired. Longer 10-foot to 12-foot rods can cast weights between 3-8 ounces far distances.

How far can you cast with a 12-foot surf rod?

With some practice you could get close to 100 yards with a 12′ rod and spinning reel. Go to the field a few times before you head to the beach and practice loading the rod.
