To prepare your rod for fishing, you first want to make sure your string is fairly new, and wont break when fishing. the best way to do this is to take about a foot or so of string out and try to break it, if it holds then you are good. you also want to test the reel, this can be done by simply putting a weight at the end of the string and casting it out not to far and realling it back in. the reel should feel smooth. if its hard to reel in there might be sand in the reel, if this happens, don't reel in anymore, you can damage it. take your reel to the nearest fishing or outdoor store and have them clean it. also make sure your rod isn't cracked or weak in any areas. once this inspection is done you are ready for a day on the lake!
