a 300 size Curado, to be able Cast, into the Rocks or KelpDude are you serious? You can use any reel as long as it has the line capacity to fish the bottom. Don't overthink or over complicate fishing.
Or do you want me to say "Get a $500 talica 2-speed"?
Hello,Half day.....go cheap. Diawa X20sha #50 braid to 20 to 30# topshot.
that's all I used to have, where the 15/30 and the 20/40Penn 500 or a Shimano 15/30. No experience w/Diawa. But those should take you to 1day fishing. Save your money for trips.
I guess if you can't thumb your line. A level wind is your only hope.that's all I used to have, where the 15/30 and the 20/40
Tld's , and they were great for offshore ,and Pattie
hopping, but most of the 1/2 day trips fish the Coast
so the Guys with the level winds , Have the advantage
being able to Cast a lot farther, into the Kelp Beds.
