Question First Striper Set ups

Going to be purchasing my first striper set up. Fishing from a Boat, nearshore and Rivers in NH/ME We plan on fishing with live bait, chunk bait and lures.

Considering picking up a 7' spinning combo set up from Penn. they seem reasonably priced and get decent reviews on this website.


Questions are:

--is 7' a good size for an all around rod for boat fishing?

--What Size reel? I'd rather be on the lighter side as my kids will be using it as well. (2500, 3000 or 4000)?

--Can you recommend a few lures that are "must haves" in every striper fisherman's tackle box?

-- I've seen a lot about pencil poppers- can I catch schoolies on these? if not what is a good lure for schoolies?

As you can tell I'm starting at Zero here with my striper fishing knowledge! This site is excellent and has helped me so much already. Looking to see if I'm headed in the right direction

-- THANK YOU for any advice or input!

Default Re: First Striper Set ups

Ditch the spinning rod and get yourself a fly rod. You'll thank me when you land your first striper on one.

One of these beginner setups with some line and a wooly bugger on some 8-10lb tippet and you'll be a happy man!

Tight Lines!
