Recommend a baitcasting reel for G Loomis 1025C

first post.

I'm returning to fishing after about a 30 year hiatus.  I fished all freshwater lakes as a teen, mostly using spinning gear, but i did start using a baitcaster for bass.

 

So I  inherited my dad's 8'6" 1025C G Loomis and am wondering what reel I should use for this for stripers/salmon, surf perch.  I think it's rated for 3/8-1 oz.   I have a collection of reels used for bass fishing, like Ambassadeur 5500C, penn 520, Shimano Curado 201 B5, Daiwa PT1500FL.

 

Should i look at a new reel and what line is recommended?

Classic Harnell in jon_elc avatar.

 

 Moocks has a Harnell rod  so old, that he was  surf casting at the beach the same day that Moses parted the Red Sea.

 

 Moocks blames Moses for Wrecking the Top Water Striper bite that day!!!

 

 Hope that's not a Spot Burn
