30 Bass

Any recommendations for somebody wanting to take up fishing?

When I was really young I used to enjoy fishing, but I would only fish for small pan-fish. Now that I'm older I haven't fished for 20+ years but really love being outside and am looking to find a new hobby. I think I would like to try fishing again, but for larger fish. Just sitting and watching a bobber is too boring for me. Even if I don't catch anything I have to be more active.

So what recommendations do you have? I'm open to any suggestions. What to try to catch? Locations to fish? I live in MN so plenty of lake choices. Equipment to use? I want to start basic and will upgrade as I get more experienced.

A mediocre/introductory (spinning) outfit typically goes for around $100- (approx $50 for reel and $50 for rod).

Spend more on your reel than your rod. Why?

(All) rods wear out (eventually). Replacing an inexpensive rod is easier than replacing a reel. And, until you want to spend $100 (plus), getting a cheap rod is a good idea. Rods to consider? Berkley Lightening Rod Shock series, Berkley Cherrywood rod, Ugly Stik Lite.

I'd suggest you spend as much as possible on your reel- (at least $50). Reels have moving parts. Cheap reels have cheaply made moving parts. The cheaper the reel, the quicker it will degrade.

Buy/purchase GOOD line. Cheap line has "issues"- ("memory", "line stretch", breaking issues, degradation, Etc). Your line connects you to your catch. Therefore, having the best possible line is vital- (unless you LIKE watching trophy fish swim away without being boated?).

Purchase GOOD hooks!!!!! Again, cheap hooks have DULL points. Stay away from Eagle Claw.

Some Mustad brands are OK- but- Gamakatsu, Owner, Daiichi, are the hook of choice for people who want to SEE what hit their lure/line.

I live in MN.

Bass are prevalent in our region and fairly easy to catch with a variety of lures. (With a simple bag of Berkley 7" Worms rigged Texas-style you can (typically) catch 20-30 Bass on most lakes) I'd suggest you think about getting some Bass lures.

Pike are common as well.

Walleye can be tough to find under perfect conditions.

Crappie can be tough to find after the Spring spawn.

Bass are everywhere- and will hit a variety of lures and bait.

Hope this helps?
