    This may be an old tip, or most may already know or do this, but here goes anyway for those who don't.:tounge_out: In that rare case when you REALLY need some extra distance on your cast, if you allow your bait to go 6-12" in the water behind you on your back swing, you can really load up your rod and get some extra sling on your bait. The longer, more limber the rod the better, pretty much the same concept as a surf rod.

    Really helps when you need it though.

    The best rod I've used so far for bank fishing is the Cabela Predator 2 1/4 lb test Euro spinning rod. Long like a surf rod but lightweight and limber and can cast up to 2-3 ounces...I've landed fish up to and over 30 lbs with it. I get fantastic casting, handling, playing action with these and at ~$65 a pop is a tremendous bargain. Doug Stange has recommended these in Catfish Insider.
