I use an 8 ft spinning rod (20 to 50oz) and quality braid not too heavy. Dexters wedges I have found work great with small bass, mackerel and gar fish which are all a laugh on light tackle. I have had my best fish from the beach using surface poppers ( mackerel pattern works well ) just behind the surf. Early mornings or eve's are good times. I have had to about 6lb this way. Hope that helps.....

one thing I forgot to say, if you are buying a rod specially I would get a travel type rod that breaks down into small bits. Then you can carry it all the time in the boot of the car along with a small rucksack and a few lures and bits. As no bait is needed lure fishing is perfect for sneaking in a few hours when weather and time allows. You are on your feet mobile and can cover a big area, no tripods and junk to lug around!

Maria Chase lures are brilliant, when combined with an 8ft long 20-40g spinning rod, along with 20lb braid and 10ft of fluorocarbon leader. Might be worth having a look down the Purbeck coastline, plenty of rocky gullies down there that should hold some bass.

Other companies that make good lures are YoZuri and Rapala

Hello mate Mick here from Consett. Never caught a Bass on a lure but haveon rag worm.
My aim now is to try and catch a Salmon so i am trying spinning as well as fly.
I upped my fresh water licence and fish the free spots at the Wear at Durham. I,ve had 4 sessions and blanked 4 times ha ha. But keep on cos i know its only a matter of time before i catch one
Best of luck with the Bass.
Mick.

For a good allround rod get yourself an 8ft ish fast action rod with a 4000 size reel, this will give you good accuracy and plenty of line on the reel to play those big bass. Load it up with 20 - 30lb braid and 30lb flouro and attach you chosen lures. I have just got myself a tackle house feed shallow mullet which is an excellent lure that always produces fish, costs £20 though but worth every penny. As regards to where to go, there are loads of places around the new forest escpecially around the estuarys of beaulieu and lymington, pennington marshes looks especially good but I haven't given it a good go yet.

Hope that helps.
