Hi, I've been lurking,reading,searching for information. I was gifted a Penn Slammer 6500 high-speed for Christmas by my wife.
The reel was spooled with 50lb braid, I know this is overkill for most surf fishing but I travel to Costa Rica, Cabo, FL so that was what BP put on for her.
Roosters, snapper, tarpon, snook, Cobia
My budget is around $300
A few I looked into are mostly 10'6''mh or 11
1 to 4oz
Mojo, new tsunami saltx are a few I've been looking at.
Mostly throwing poppers and spoons.
Thanks for the help and let me know if I missed any details to narrow it down.
