Hello everyone, I just started fishing in the Bay Area, would this Okuma Rockaway Light Weight Carbon Saltwater Surf 11 feet medium action,  penn fierce 5000 “50lbs braid power pro moss green”, good for casting calissa 110m?

If your set on the Rockaway get the 10' 1/2 - 2 oz  RA-S-1002ML and get rid of the " fierce 5000 “50lbs braid " and go with a 4000 / 4500 size reel with 20 or 30 lb braid.

That is a heavy set up your talking about .... I’m not a fan of the Calissa I think it has been pimped way too hard by

YouTubers .... 9ft Okuma SST Medium action 3/8 to1oz lure wt 20lb braid with a 3000 Penn Conflict II spinning ... this set up is just my truck set up .. stripers/perch/salmon/steelhead/carp

IMHO best all around plug especially if your just starting out is a bucktail jig, then again depends on where your fishing.

Decide to do a quick fix on it. Got a hack saw from a $ tree. Saw the old pole  that was broken from a very long time ago, use the tube and connect the broken half of the okuma rod together with seal tapes and pcv  pipe glue. Hope this hold out until the replacement come. 5BFEDDF3-CFC2-44E1-92B1-757AFBE4285D.jpeg.0763da336979c28d5664724d640d742c.jpeg
