Default Freshwater in Saltwater

Anybody ever use a freshwater rod in the salt before? I don't feel like buying a new set up and just want to use my freshwater baitcasting rod for mackeral halibut and some of the other small fish we have out here on the west coast. Will rinsing it off with freshwater after every use help or will it still cease up on me?

If I use my trout rod for schoolies I usually rinse it off when I get home and then take it apart when I wake up to give it a good cleaning. I don't know if I have to do this but better safe than sorry. I do it just because, someone here might know for sure if you HAVE to do all that.

That seems like a lot of work....I might be best of buying another rod. The saltwater fish out here are either really small as in under and around 10 pounds or really big as in up to 100 pound bat rays.........so it's hard to have an all around rod.

I'm using my muskie rod for jetty fishing. I just make sure I clean it like I normally would, and I haven't had a problem yet.

I've got a salmon rod that I only use in the salt. Works great and has the same style Fuji guides that you'd have on a saltwater rod - which is a good thing because I'm not so great about cleaning my stuff every time I fish
