Default Good enough rod?

Hey yall,

Lookin' to fish out of the Chattahoochee just north of Atlanta.. Was wondering if the rod/reel I have now would work for stripers of if I should upgrade. I currently have a Penn Sargus 4000 with a Penn Slammer rod. Would you recommend using braided line or mono? Thanks for all the help guys, sorry for all noob questions..

I guess the answer kind of depends on the size stripers you expect to catch in the river. I think you should be fine for tossing small lures to small to medium size fish. If I were planning on wrestling with some 35 pounders, I might have gone one size up on the combo.

Either way, I'd spool the reel up with braid.

Good luck on your trip. Post some pics of your catch.
