Night fishing is 90% of what i do in the summer. clambellies are the bait of choice. Small(2") glowsticks work better than bells on the tip of your rod....headlights are a must. Learn to tie knots in the dark. dont wade in too deep when all you can do is HEAR the waves coming. and don't forget to stop for a minute and checkout how beautiful it is out on some summer eves. gotta love not knowing what your pulling in.

Mike If your lookin in that price range the one in the picture to the lower right is a better reel.
Daiwa? Emcast? Plus Big-Water Reels. Its a long stroke reel and supposedly will hold the braid better. It looks like an interesting reel.
Some people hate Diawa though. Before you go out and spend your money give me a heads up and Ill get you a reel of choice at wholesale cost.

Default Re: Spinning Reels for surf rods

I've had Shimano's, Stradics, and Sustains. Both nice reels. And, have caught several large stripers on both. They both hold very good amounts of line. Especially if you're using braid. I also have a Tica Taurus 4000. This is an awesome reel for the $$$!!! I've caught tons of stripers 40+"s on this reel. I have it on an 8' St. Croix. And, use it regularly in the ditch!! Its been holding strong for 6 seasons. With minimal maintenance. Freshwater wash, and lubrication. I also just purchased an Accurate Platinum SR20 Twin Drag. I have high expectations for this reel. All T6061 aluminum construction with stainless steel gears, and springs. It also has a titanium main shaft. Pricey, but I think it'll be well worth it!! Hope you find the right reel for your pole! And remember you get what you pay for
