I went to Dorset at the weekend and decided to have a crack at sea fishing - caught nothing lol. I was using a normal 12ft match rod with some 5lb line! A really helpful guy at a local tackle shop said I may be lucky and sold me a small lure for a couple of quid and gave me a few tips and hints on the area.
Anyhow, I really enjoyed it and as we plan to do more uk coastal holidays in future I quite fancy getting some kit. I'm not a serious / keen angler but i do enjoy it.
Now on eBay there are lots of tackle shops selling 2x 14ft rods and 2 reels with 20lb line for about £55. Obviously they're not going to be great quality. My question is: are these going to be ok for beach fishing just a few times a year? Or would they be like the kits you get at the petrol station / fairground!!!
Also any tips for beach / pier fishing. Going to South Wales in the summer?
