Medium Heavy Beach Rod Combo (Ugly Stik 12ft Rod with Penn Spinfisher 850SSM Reel)
Beach fishing is one of Australia’s favourite pastimes. There is noting better than casting out a bait, digging your rods sand spike into the sand then sit in wait with tinny in hand at the end of a hard day at work. Ahh, relaxing at its best. Hang on a sec, to the rod that is! Looks like we might have a bite… Is it a whiting? Salmon? Tailor? Or is it a beach jew? WOW huge run there. I’m thinking mulloway for sure! Let’s wind it in and see.
