Selecting a Fishing Rod

When you’re choosing the right fishing rod, you’ll need to get specific about the type of fishing you’ll be doing, even if you’re looking for a conventional rod. Are you fishing in saltwater or freshwater? Do you need short or long casts? Do you want the sensitivity of a graphite rod, or the durability of a fiberglass rod? Will you need a casting rod to place your bait exactly where you intend it, or a spinning rod for ease of use? Choose a slow action rod for a greater whip at the end, a fast action rod for greater sensitivity to bites, or a medium action rod for the best of both worlds. At Sportsman’s Warehouse, our wide selection of fishing rods is sure to supply you with the ideal rod for your fishing needs


Types of Fishing Poles for Different Types of Angling

Our selection includes casting rods for baitcasting, or spinning rods if you’re fishing with lighter weights. We also offer saltwater spinning rods (or surf rods) that can stand up to the heavier baits you’ll need in saltwater. Find the ideal fly fishing rod for your next expedition, or a trolling rod to bring in heavy target species through your deep sea fishing. You can also find rod cases and rod racks to help you store and transport your rods with ease, so that you can focus on the fishing itself. Choose from our selection of quality rods from trusted manufacturers including G. Loomis, Okuma, St. Croix, and Shimano.
