Default Post your set ups!

Hey guys, i just wanted to see what set ups everyone was using, bait-casting or spinning or anything else ! I'm tryin to make a set up but there are just too many possibilities, hopefully this will narrow my choices down!

Thanks for your time,

J.C.

CC...I would call that anything BUT a "beginners morgashboard"...
That to me says, "Boy!, that kid realizes that he needs different set-ups for different conditions"...

...Personaly...I don't particularly like being called a beginner...

BTW>>> 800th POST...Hows that for a "beginner"????????

The only Penn reel I've had trouble with was the 7500 and 8500s . i used to use the 5500s all the time. They stand up to some good size fights for a smaller reel.
CC. I thought that post was from baitbucket Bob. Always pulling on his middle leg.

Us Bob's must think alike. He took it hook, line and sinker.

A few words about rods over 10 feet. Car doors. CRACK!!!

If the surf is high and you want distance and accuracy by all means go larger. But if your needs are shore, pier and bank a smaller rod offers a little more versatility as well as being less weildly. (is that a word?) and the Shimano baitrunners are about the same price as the 8500 and 9500's. My 2 c. but thats just me. If your plugging big surf go bigger. Baitrunners dont like being dunked.

I was just about to say the same thing, when I read jimmy's post. If your on cape cod where the beaches go out gradual, Then I would want a 11' 13' rod, but if up in plum Island wereit drops off fast, allyou need is a 9.' or 9.6' rod. I like smaller then bigger myself and lighter.

I think the responce should have been Where do you intend to fish and for what. That sounds like an arsenal. If you guys take that with you ,you'll deed a U-haul.
