Default New to the forum - Need help choosing rod/reel


I am new to the forum. I was hoping you guys could help me choose a hybrid striper set up. I fish behind dams in fast water in the Ohio River in PA. I throw mostly one to two ounce swimbaits, bucktails, and my favorite Got-Cha plugs.

What baitcaster rod/reel would you use in this scenario?

Right now I am looking at a 13 Fishing Black Omen 7'3" med hvy or hvy if you all tell me its necessary and a Daiwa Lexa 300 High Capacity 7.1:1 Hyper Speed reel with the Power Handle. I'd put 30-40 lb. Power Pro braid with a 3' 20 lb. mono shock leader.

Thoughts/Suggestions please!

Thanks in advance,

You might also want to take a look at the St. Croix Tidemaster inshore rods. Great rods for the price.
