Default Fishing anyone?

I'm looking to buy my own rod. Not really looking to spend too much. Mainly going to fish for porgies, blues, blacks, sea bass and flukes. Anyone can recommend me a rod/reel?

This setup isn't bad. It is good for freshwater as well as saltwater fishing. I have a few Pflueger freshwater combos from bass pro.

It you haven't done a whole lot of fishing I suggest a Spinning Reel. Bait Casting reels are good for making bird nests out of your line if you haven't had a lot of practice casting, especially if it is windy out.

I have some VERY nice fishing rods and reels that my grandpa gave me. Most of them are hand/custom made. He has fished all over the world but his favorite spot was some place off the coast of baja california.

For the the kind of fishing you are doing.
Reel:
Shimano Charter Special 2000. Its a lever drag/level wind(the cheapest of its kind) that is pretty much bulltet proof. Great for all the fish you mentioned. Small enough for flounder, stout enough for Blues. Spool it with 300 yards of 30# power pro.
Rod:
Shimano Musky rod.

About $200-220.
-not spending to much is a relative term- you can easily drop $400 on a reel alone.

You could go to a takle shop & get one of those cheap Penn combos on a rod that's like a broomstick, but they wont last. Penn has now become junk for the most part.

Saltwater will tear that combo up. Bluefish or big stripers will destroy that reel as well... The ocean is a hole different animal than fresh water, even when we are talking big freshwater fish.

For bottom fishing, spinning gear isn't the best. You need to be able to freespool the reel to stay on bottom & to feed the biting fish. A conventional reel is the only way to go in that case.

Well damn... shows what I know about freshwater fishing. You could take big lake trout and musky with that setup. I kind of figured it would be alright for a similar sized ocean fish.

I caught a 7 pound walleye on an ultralight rod before on accident. It was a hell of a fight, but I did get it into the boat.

A 7# blue will spool an ultralight before you even know what happened.

A 10# bluefish will outfight a 40# musky... It's about speed & the ability to run. Forked tails give em speed & power. They swim long distances & have to fight to live all day, every day, that gives them endurance. Unless you have high end light tackle, like Calcutta's or Penn Internationals, blues will tear the gears & drag up in a hurry.

Bluefish are some mean SOBS, and they are just the babies of the ocean.
