Mainly fishing in Ohio, I have four Rods and reels. Two rodes are medium to heavy action, the other two are medium to light. I have a 5:2:1 gear Pfluger president reel and I'm not sure whether to upgrade my reel for my heavier rods or figure something else out. One of the reels for my medium heavy rods is just fine. But I am fishing the coast of Maine soon near deer isle and wanted to know if my Pfluger reel is good enough to shore fish or not.

The Pflueger might be a little small; usable, but small.  What's the line capacity on that reel?

 

No reason to buy anything until you know you need it.  Take it fishing and then see if it seems inadequate.  This is a baitcaster?

Good enough. Go fishing. Braid makes it big enough, though you'll still want bigger if you start fishing salt water regularly.
