    Fishing

    okay so i guess that there are a decent amount of fishermen here so, i want to get a rod and real for fishing. 100% of the fishing will be from the beach but im lost when it comes to what i should be looking at. not trying to drop alot of $ but who is? so if anyone could help thatd be cool. sorry for the lack of info i just dont know where to start

    a nice set up for the money is the Penn Fierce in the 400 or 4000 range (mid size) and an Ugly Stick classic 7' rod. My dad has that set up and it works out well on the stripers and blues up here. I have the Penn Slammer 460 with an ugly stick which Id recommend too.

    For local conditions, I go with a 9' St. Croix Mojo Surf rod and a Penn Sargus (7000?) reel. Moderately priced and very versatile.

    The best place to go advice and gear, IMO, is Sciortino's Tackle Box up Hazlet, right on Route 35. It's a little drive, but the guys in there are good people, and their advice and knowledge is rock solid.

    If you are looking for a decent set up and low cost, Walmart actually carries some decent PENN fishing reels and Shakespeare salt water spinning rods. Prob gonna be your best set up for the lowest cost.

    Thats a casting rod, but they have saltwater spinning as well. Just to give you an idea

    yeah fierce 4000. the 8000 that link is to is prob overkill/heavy/extra money. the 4000 is on the top right of that link. its a nice reel for the money.
