Default A couple things

I have a wish list for next season. I am still fishing now but thought I would get the wish list started now.

I have used mono and I am now moving over to braid. Will the spinning reels I have now (3500/4500 Shimano Baitrunners) work with braid or should I look else where?

What are good light tackle spinning reels to be used with braid? They are going to go on some light action rods so I donít need high capacity.

Any other baitrunner reels out there other than the Shimano. I love mine but didnt know if any other companies have come up with something better

Good dead sticking rod? I have seen $25-$125. I dont want to drop a lot into these rods considering it will be sitting in a rod holder. If however the price point does matter I will bite the bullet.

Guys thanks in advance and all fishing is done off the boat.

braid is fine on those reels.
look into conventional rods and reels.........
your baitrunner's good to have to cast plugs and jigs.
a rod for your boat is one of the most important purchases you can make. just cause it is a 20-40 rated rod doesn't mean it has a good bend or is sturdy enough for a beast.
your gonna have to bite the bullet on that one i'm afraid.
a good boat rod will not be cheap. all around good boat rods for bass and bluefish are reasonable but,, a really good sturdy stik can be pricey. invest in one or two that have backbone. suggestions? a few, but i'd look into the shimano trevally rod.. great bait rod but excells at jigging "and that is one of the things ya wanna get good at is jigging off a boat" don't skimp on the rod as conventional reels are a dime a dozen on ebay. imo, that shimano rod is even ideal for trolling. i'm not sure if it has carboloy guides for wireline but. do some homework on other ideas and deals you see. you have plenty of time to get great deals over the winter.
