I'm consdidering purchasing a rod n reel for standard boat fishing. Dont go that often so dont wont to spend too much dosh, but wondered if any of you could recommend a good rod/reel combo deal. Used to beach casters, so looking for advice on what length rod, what class, etc, as I'm not sure myself. Reel-wise, I'm hoping to use a multiplier.
Appreciate any advice
but if you are going down on the south coast wreck/ reff fishing
15/30 class is ok or a very good uptider as for reels you say you have mutipliers what sort are they adu 6500 or 700 are very good
( if you had put this up two weeks ago you could have had all mine
just sold it all for £85 2 uptiders 1 15/30 1 50 glass two diawa
sealine loaded with braid and a load of end tackle )
Oh well.. Cheers Mick. Sorry, perhaps I said it wrong - I need to buy a reel aswell. All my beach reels are fixed spool, and was hoping to get a multiplier for this new setup. I'm going south coast monday, and east coast sunday. Would ideally like a rod that covers both... may be better off with a 30lb class as uptider dont think would cope with wrecking?
Anyone else got some nice second hand boat n reels they're selling? Only good stuff tho plze as dont want real cheap kit that'll just snap first trip :lol:
You could consider the Daiwa Slosh 30 which is fine for the beach & rocks but I believe i've seen Henry Gilbey using one from a boat as well- I'm not into boat fishing at all and dont really fancy it but others might know more whether the slosh will cope with boat work but tis got a very good retrieve on it.
