Complete fishing kit with Berkley Powerbait shaky worms and power minnows
Features bass and bream sized beetle spins and live bait rigs
Includes a rigging guide
Shakespeare understands that if kids can catch fish more easily, they’ll be more likely to enjoy themselves. Beginning anglers will catch more fish—and have more fun—with the Catch More Fish Combos. They make getting into fishing easy because they’re ready to fish right out of the box. Each one is pre-rigged with Stren® fishing line and Berkley® PowerBait® lures chosen to catch certain kinds of fish or succeed in specific environments. Plus, each one comes with a rigging guide—a great knot-tying and bait-choosing resource to help kids learn the ropes.
Rated 4 out of 5 by freakinaris Good first rod
The line is not spooled properly. It might cause backlashes. A solution is to cast really far out and point ur rod down so the line goes in the water, then reel in the line. It backlashed for about 5 times and now its working normally for me. I've used it for 8 months now, and its working well. *do not do anything to the bail's screws except tighten it once in a while. I opened it and the spring that controls the bail broke and now it doesnt have the springy feel when u open it. But it still can be used. I landed 4 bass and 5 trouts since the bail's spring stopped working. and it has never cause me to lose a fish.

this is an asome reel for fresh water fishing Ive caught'en 5lb bass on it with hot water melon worms and haven't had a problem, till i changed the line my self which i will admit i didn't spool it on right now that i think about it but that was my fault y the string was messing up but i respooledd it and its fine now, this rod is pretty fun inshore i just went out last weekend and landed some Spanish mackerel and blue fish out at cape Canaveral using the small gotcha cigar lure it was a fun day and the lighter rod action made reeling the fish in even funner ,just make sure to rinse and clean the reel if u want it to stay mint

My wife and I bought 2 of the red & blue poles from Shakespeare. The Bass poles are pretty decent. However, the Pond poles (blue) are pretty disappointing from a reel perspective. I would agree with others that the line backlashes often. The rods are fine. It is just the reels and maybe the line. I will be changing the line and reel if necessary.
Spend twice as much and get a browning combo. I would not recommend this purchase but I would recommend the Bass rod & reel set.
