Rod/Reel Recommendation Please
I'm just going to back into striper fishing, and would appreciate some recommendations on rod reel combos. My main fishing will be done on the Cape Cod Canal. I prefer spinning gear, and will likely be using braided line with mono or Fluoro leaders. I'll be fishing Poppers, diving baits, and possibly some 4-5 oz jigs.
I don't have a lot to spend on a new set-up so I've looked at the Penn fierce 8000 reel and a Penn fierce 10' spinning rod. Will this get the job done for now till decide to upgrade? The other choice for a rod was the Ugly Stick. Thanks for your help.
