Exclamation in need of some advice

Well I have been home from being in the Marines for about 2 months I have a lot of free time now. I am brand new to striper fishing. The major part of my fishing is from the beach****I was thinking of purchasing a surf rod and a conventional reel.****

Daiwa beefstick 12'****
Pen Defiance reel don't know which size

****Don't know if that would be a good setup for me or not and my funds are limited :scurrently unemploymed

Will high visible line be ok?

Hey man welcome to the site! I have about 6 months left on a 5 year contract....it's been long but I cant wait to be in your position.


I cant help you with that set up but others will for sure. Good luck out there...do some searching and most of your questions will be answered.


By the way where are you fishing from?

I fish mostly from shore! Beaches and jetties! I just looked at a Lamiglas 11 foot surf rod and Abu Garcia 7001i reel.
