I know panfishing is pretty basic.Any favorite ways to fish for them from shore?
Best set up for shore fishing
7’6” light extra fast tip. 4 pound maxima and a 1000 Shimano reel. Rocket bobber for long range casting or foam weighted for closer casting pitching. With the small rocket bobber on this set up I can almost cast the entire spool of line. I’ve tried the 9-10’ rods and like this set up myself much better.
My go-to rig is a long crappie rod, as well. I use a larger thill slip bobber and put on two good-sized split shots and a 1/32 jig head so the bobber still floats, but it doesn’t take much to pull it under. You can flip it bass style for close in work and cast it like a light surf rod if you ever want to go beyond a distant weed line. I use six pound test. The soft rod tip is really forgiving.
