Best Fishing Poles for 2022

When a fisherman begins their adventure in Port Jefferson, they’ll want to use the right fishing rod and reel. Picking the right one is crucial to having a successful trip on the water. Even if you only plan to use a worm or a bobber, the wrong pole will not cast far enough out, which means fewer fish will be caught. 

Port Jefferson offers a mix of fresh water from nearby tributaries, and salt water from the ocean. As a result, you’ll need to keep that in mind when you are buying a new rod and reel. Other details to consider are the type of rod, number of pieces, size of the rod, power rating, action rating, and the material used in constructing the rod. 

Below are the top five fishing rods to use in Port Jefferson. 

St. Croix AVID Series Spinning Rod

Primarily a freshwater rod, the St. Croix Avid Series Spinning Rod is ultralight, yet it doesn’t leave the angler feeling wimpy. It has the standard Fuji reel seats with premium cork handles, and boasts a 15-year warranty! Because Port Jefferson has saltwater fishing too, check out the St. Croix Avid Inshore! 

Ugly Stik Elite Spinning Rod

The Ugly Stik Elite Spinning Rod offers versatility since it can be used in fresh or saltwater of Port Jefferson. It is made of 35 percent more graphite, which makes it strong, lightweight, and sensitive so you can feel the smallest bites! The cork handles give it a comfortable grip and a beautiful appearance. You can choose from a variety of rod lengths, powers, and actions so that it can fit the style of any fisherman.    

Okuma Celilo Ultralight Spinning Rod

Better than average quality, the Okuma Celilo is an ultralight rod for a reasonable price. It is made of two pieces, which makes it compatible with traveling to your favorite fishing destination in Port Jefferson. The Okuma Celilo is great when you want to fish for multiple species, and has high sensitivity so you can feel the fight of a large freshwater fish. 

Cadence CR5 Ultralight Spinning Rod

Cadence’s CR5 spinning rod is available as a one-piece or a two-piece. It is constructed from 30-ton graphite for strength but retains sensitivity to detect a biting fish. It has an ultralight setup that is great for the angler that enjoys fishing in freshwater and saltwater.
