Rod & Reel combos for newbie  (Read 1489 times)

First time out with Capt. Larry


Been doing a lot of reading / lurking trying to learn before taking the plunge.  So here goes.

8'Berkley Glow Stik Medium with either a Saltstriker Baitrunner or a Shimano Baitrunner
8' Berkley Cherrywood E-Glass Medium with a Abu 6500 Record
7' Ugly Stick Tiger with the other Spinning reel.
All rods have to be two piece since I travel around Texas and surrounding states for a living, and the reels have to be able to fish salt even though I'll mostly be in fresh water.  My main thought is catfishing or similar since I'm working nights and would logically keep the same schedule on my nights off.

I'm feeling like a fool who's money is soon to be parted from him, I'm just trying to avoid purchasing stuff that I'll not be satisfied with down the road.

Best bet,IMHO, is to buy a rod you like,such as the Shakespere Ugly Cat 7 ft ,then add an Ambassador 6500 [RH] or 6501 [LH] reel. Then you're set for life!

Thanks for the advise Ronnie, that's exactly what I did.
Just couldn't bring myself to depart from the norm so I got a RH Record 6500 matched to a Glowstik, and a Shimano Baitrunner for the Tiger.
For now I'm going to practice.  Not a lot else to do staying in hotels.
