This is an awesome post albeit very overwhelming for a noob. I was hoping someone could give me a recommendation.


I live in Jersey and would like to start fishing for stripers. Primarily fishing from the shore.


Is there a rod reel that can pull equal duty on a boat as well as on shore?


The only rod I have is an ugly Stik gx2 casting rod. 6'6", medium heavy. Will this work?


I saw the reel recommendations but I wasn't sure of the size I would need. I'm looking for something under $150.


I think I'm good figuring out the rest of the gear but I just wanted to make sure I'm getting the right reel.

Awesome thread! Anyone have any experience with the Daiwa Beefstick that was mentioned in this thread? Thoughts on the rod? Thanks!

Friend of mine loves them.
