Fishing lovers unite!

Fishing Equipment Is Very Affordable

There are so many hobbies around these days that people can involve themselves with that it can be difficult for people to find one they enjoy. One thing that can put people off starting a certain hobby is the overall cost. The good news is that most are affordable, and one which is enjoyed every week, by millions of people, is fishing. When it comes to fishing equipment, there is only the outlay for the rod and reel at the start which costs the most. After that, the only cost is for line, bait and hooks.

Of course, the overall cost of the equipment for fishing depends on what type of fishing will be done. The gear for coarse fishing is very light and usually the lowest price. Sea fishing requires a heavy and strong reel and rod, which usually means a higher cost. Game fishing is usually the most expensive, and can involve licenses for fishing on private land or a fish farm. The kind of fishing a person prefers depends usually on where they live, rather than having tried all three types and selected the one that they enjoy more. (more…)

The Best Place To Buy Fishing Equipment

Shoppers are a lot more knowledgeable these days than they were in the past. In the past, stores were able to charge almost anything they wanted because many of these stores were the only shop in town. Now with the internet things are a lot different. Shoppers often educate themselves before spending their hard earned money. It isn’t uncommon for a shopper to do a few hours of Google research before they even step into a store so they really know how much something should cost. I’ve got a friend that owns a tree service (shameless plug – http://www.minnesotatreeservices.com) who buys a lot of fishing gear online. He says that this trend has hurt those big box sporting good stores but it hasn’t hurt online merchants.

When it comes to buying fishing equipment,there is only one place where you should buy it. The only place where you should buy fishing equipment is online. Why online? You should buy online because the prices are better, there’s greater transparency, you can quickly compare the prices and reputation of a dozen stores in a few minutes. When you buy online, you have all the power. We all would like to support our local stores but a lot of the time they just don’t have what we need at the right price and that is why online is better.

It also is not just about price but about inventory. Online fishing equipment stores just have more things to sell to us and we like that. Shoppers like having options and being shown things that they did not know about. They hate how when they go to a local store and what they are looking for is not in stock. Online stores always have what we need and in the rare case that they do not there is always another online store with it.

So if you want the best deals in fishing equipment, shop online.

Looking at Your Fishing Equipment Options

When it comes to enjoying the perfect weekend out on the lake, river, or if you’re lucky even the ocean, having the right fishing equipment can make all the difference between enjoying the fight and bringing in a delicious catch or struggling to get the results you want. Let’s face it, fishing is a lot more fun when you’re getting some action. The time out with family or on the water is the main point, but why not add in a bunch of fish? That certainly isn’t going to hurt the overall vibe. And all success starts with making sure you have the right fishing equipment to get it done.

Good Fishing Rods
The first thing you need is the right fishing rod, and what makes the right fishing rod? That depends on a variety of factors. An ultra light fishing rod with heavy action isn’t the best idea for trophy pike fishing, but it can make small pan fish or bass a lot of fun to go after since that rod means even little fish can give some big action.

On the other hand if you’re going for really big fish, you want a rod that gives medium or low action with heavier test line. You won’t feel as much unless something big hits, but then you have the tools to bring it in! (more…)

Fishing Season Is Right Around The Corner

In many places around the country it is still cool, in other parts of the country the weather is beginning to get more mild, but where ever you are in this country, we are just a few weeks away from fishing season. For most of us, the start of fishing season is a big deal. We usually take this opening of the fishing season to buy new equipment, to work on the equipment we have and to get ready to catch some fish. As this season heads our way, let’s focus on the best place to get our equipment.

Buying Fishing Equipment Online

One of the absolute best places to buy fishing equipment is online. Online is such a great place to buy fishing equipment because it is less expensive and the inventory is a lot deeper online than in local retail stores. Sure it is easy to just walk into your local sporting good store and find all the everyday average equipment at a high price but it is much better to shop online so that you can see a large variety of high quality gear at a really good price.

Competition Is Your Friend

Your local retail store doesn’t have much competition so they can charge high prices and in many ways they must charge high prices to cover their overhead. Online stores don’t have good prices because they like you, they have good prices because all the competition online forces them to have prices that are similar or lower than their competitors. This is basic market economics working to help the consumer. When businesses compete, we all win because we can get out equipment at a lower price.

So buy all your new fishing equipment at an online store.
