I also agree with the others that mentioned not using a cheap baitcaster at the beginning.

My daughter has been fishing with me for several years, and always only with a spinning set-up. This year I have been letting her try my one baitcasting set-ups, and one of the best things for a beginner BC user is to use a good braided line. This will certainly help with casting as well as easier to remove the over-runs that you WILL get.

Fred, walt, chris and I are all I'm aware of. Chris and I are in cabin 5, again. Not sure what # Walt is in. A burger sounds great. Do you still have my cell#?

Why yes, yes I do.

Don't go cheap. You don't need to go super expensive either. A good brake system is important for learning. Daiwa's magforce z brakes are fantastic. I was skeptical of just magnetic brakes due to my casting style but after using them, I love them.
Shimano has some good brakes on their reels as well.
Lews has a bunch of reels with dual brakes and that is great for learning. You can adjust your front end brakes and back end brakes this way depending on your casting style.

On the cheaper end I recommend the Fuego CT, or Tatula CT. If you want something that is harder to backlash you could go up to a Tatula SV. I am a fan of these due to the all aluminum frame and side plates.

On the Shimano side there are some good reels as well. A Citica is a great reel and can be had for less than $140.

lews makes some good reels that also have  small form factor.

I cast with my right and reel with my left. If that is what you are comfortable with, then you'll want to go with a Lefty reel. In baitcasters that means the handle is on the left side.

Like some mentioned earlier, if you are going to get a rod and a reel, go to the store, put the reel on the rod and see how the combo feels. Make sure it's balanced and feels good in your hand.
There is a big difference in holding a spinning and baitcaster. The spinning is easier to hold because you're holding the handle of the rod. With baitcaster you are palming the reel and rod. So comfort is critical.

So far bank fishing has been hit or miss with me lately. Last week on one of my usual locations I thought I had the fish figured out. I caught 7, with one of them being pretty decent. Then the bite completely dies... lol!! I switched gears and fished a different location. The fishing was slow but some very nice fish came out of hiding to investigate my bait. I was fortunate to come across a nice once yesterday, but like I said, this summer has been hit or miss. Here are pics of my latest catch.

Sorry guys... don't understand why the pics are side ways.  Can't straighten them out for some reason.
