Question about a rod for fishing the tri state area
Hey everyone, been reading the forums for quite a bit now but making my first post because I can't find the information I am looking for. Not new to fishing but new to surf casting and am trying to settle on the right rod for the type of fishing I will be doing. I am located in Westchester so I will pretty much be bouncing around with the seasons fishing the Hudson, Long Island Sound, and south shore of Long Island. I've gathered that I need to consider weight of line I will be using, weight of lures/bait however I'm not sure what lb test line I should be using or what weight of lures I will be using in these areas. I've settled on the Penn Spinfisher V 5500 or 6500LL for my reel but I'm not sure the length, power, or action I should get on a rod for fishing the waters I listed. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
