--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I understand surf fishing, but my question is, is a spinning set up better than a baitcasting set up ? I want to go for stripers in the S.F Bay Area, i hear people telling me to buy a good bait casting reel with a nice 9-11 foot med-heavy rod. And then i have some more people telling me to get those huge 12 footers with a good spinning reel! What is more ideal for me and what works the best? I want to use lures, so i should get a good baitcasting set up right ? Thanks for your time guys n gals !

Like they say :?: One boat dosen't do it all and one set up dosen't either. The old saying goes, every pot has a cover.

I have a few different setups, but far and away my favorite is:

9' Seeker BCSW Triggerstick(wish they still made em)
On this rod I usually fish a Daiwa sealine X 30series with 20lb. P-line or if the situation requires it my good old Newell Frame/Spool kitted Penn 500 Jigmaster loaded with 30lb. Maxima Green. This is a decent casting setup with the Daiwa on it....I can throw 3oz + bait around 140 yards off the beach. That is usually enough to get me where I need to be.

Just read them,there all different Like I said it depends, The area your fishing. As far as baitcasting or spinning ? I would say if your kind of new go with spinning, off a beach ,peir and so on. out of a boat you could use either. good luck

How's your luck been with the Vanish?
Mine was horrible. I had 3 reels spooled with it in different tests for a Florida trip. Every time a fish hit, the line would snap as though it were as brittle as glass and I run a fairly soft drag.

I don't trust the stuff now and from what I hear I'm not the only person with this opinion.

11 ft work horse with a penn 320gt 65 # calcuta braid. 12 ft lamiglass heavy 1 to 6 oz casting with a penn 320ld 300 yards of 85# calcuta both not good for casting but great for wenching in what ever might pick me up.
I dont think you need great expensive equiptment to catch fish ,you just need to know the stuff you have in and out.

Default I agree sudsy

Sudsy, that Vanish stuff is junk. First off florocarbon as a main line if you're casting is not fun. Too much memory and too stiff. It's fine for flipping. I used the vanish for leader material and it broke at the knot when it shouldn't have many times. I've had good luck with Carbon pro (expensive and tests weigh over the supposed poundage) and "Triple Fish" is good too and is cheaper.

I agree - Vanish sucks.

I was a Seaguar guy untill this year when I decided that $150+ per year for leader material was a bit out of hand. Switched to Triplefish and Ande Flouro (Stren flouro line for uner 15# leaders) and have been very satisfied with the results.

Default Triple Fish is good

Hey Sudsy, I'm using triple fish too for salt water. In saltwater where lots of fish have teeth it's just too expensive to go through a roll of carbon pro. The only time I use the seagar/carbon pro are on my steelhead/salmon trips in the rivers a couple times a year b/c nothing compares to it in strength/diameter which really matters often when steelhead or salmon fishing.
