How far can you cast and with what?
The other day Rick Murphy gave a talk at our fishing club. At one point he highlighted that with certain rod size (like 1/2 foot longer but don't remember well) he could cast an extra 65 yards. I was like, ****?? So he means he can cast at least 65 yards (195') to begin with and then with a longer rod he can cast 390'? :huh I can't even cast 65 yards! Maybe with a 5lbs line and a 4oz lure LOL! Anyway, of course I am a relatively newbie and my lightest setup is a 7.5' Calico Jack rod with a 3000 Battle reel with 12lbs braid. With a 1/4oz Johnson gold spoon I can cast it maybe 100' (33yrds). So (with more practice) how far can I expect to cast with what? How you do and with what equipment? Looking to try to set some reasonable goals for self improvement :wink
