Well I finally decided to get a cast after all these years. Should have got one a long time ago. I just wanted to get something small, affordable, with decent quality. Didn’t want one with plastic coated weights. So I bought a 4’ Betts Hi Tider. I know it’s pretty small, but I just wanted something I could get used to throwing right first and get the hang of. Plus there’s a lot of small tight areas that shad get caught in around here that this would be perfect for. Like drain pipe areas. I know, not too exciting. But I am a little excited of the possibilities of bait I can find with this thingy. I’ll see how she goes!
