I'm going to start fishing regularly in the ponds and lakes around my home (bass, trout and cats) in San Antonio. My question is, are the rods/reel combos at academy/walmart any good for this kind of fishing? I'm teaching my wife how to cast and I myself haven't fished regularly since I was a kid, so very little experience here.
Just trying to blow off steam and have some fun outside of the house. I'm searching for affordability with reasonable durability.
They will work fine for starters, welcome to the forum, and good luck.
