Spinning rods are easy to use rods that have anywhere from 5-8 guides arranged along the underside of the rod to help control the lines. They have larger eyes than a casting rod to allow less friction as the coiled line comes off the reel, and to gather the very large loops of line that come off the spool. Unlike a baitcast setup, a spinning reel hangs beneath the spinning rod rather than sitting on top and is held in place with a sliding or locking reel seat. Spinning rods and reels are commonly used for fishing bass, perch, trout, pike, and walleye.
