Salmon river fishing, Newbie spinning fishing rod & reel insight.
Hello all, wondering what tackle you would suggest for river fishing chinook salmon. Spinning rod length, action, weight(action) ect.
Also real size/capacity.
heading up there soon, and want my own stuff.
I use a 9 foot moderate action rod range from 10 to 30 lb test with a Penn Reel 6500 rated for 30 lb test. I also have the same setup with an Ambassadeur Reel C5 6500 rated for 30lb test. Of course I run 30 lb test.
Boat fishing, ocean fishing, bank fishing??? WHere are you headed? Lots of different options and different things work better in different places. There are a couple other "what ONE rod/reel/line, what rod for reds" type threads that are pretty recent, you should read those too.
