Seeker Hercules Inshore Lite (wrapped by myself) with a Avet SX MC, or Newell P220-5f loaded with 65lb braid for bottom fishing. Other ones filled with 40lb mono.

$2.50 spincast reel that was on sale at dick's and a borrowed spinning rod.

I fish in the ocean on a boat.

I don't know why people spend all the money they do to catch creatures with a brain as small as a pea.

As you can see I'm in a terrible mood today.

Pretty nice spinning rod, though.

I see where you are coming from mickrazz, I'm a rod builder so just building keeps me coming back to see whats new out there!:D

I figured you were(nerb). Billy built two of my rods. I fool around with some stuff. Do my own spiral wraps on factory rods after I strip them. I was just bustin your balls, but I did fish with that setup i posted about. Now go get started on my inshore lite.

Oh yea, the old spinning rod that I borrowed was almost falling apart. The guy had some nerve giving ME that rod to use. I got a good mind to give it back to him in a couple years....after I'm done with it.

I'm biased...The Seeker Hercules Inshore Lite 7'2 not trimmed, Titanium TLDBSG size 6 guides. Paired with an Ocea Jigger 1500P with a Diawa Saltiga 40 handle. I use this for 6+oz Fluking, oicean Porgy & Sea Bass, diamond jigging Bass/BLues if we ever stop on them, and 100% as my Blackfish rod.
