Here is the headboat classic. I also use this set-up and have been for years (I use to use mono main line and leader).
Ugly Stik BWB 1120 8' rod
Penn 113h 4/0 reel (Penn 330 GTi if you like levelwind)
stand. knocker rig w/ 60-100 # flourcarbon leader (varies)
I like to use live bait hooks unless I am in super deep water I'll use circle hooks....but looks like circle hooks will be mandatory on Florida reef fishing.
I have also been won over by braided line.....I use PowerPro 65#
You can get this set up for right around $200
here is a headboat's recomendations that fishes the Florida Middle Grounds (bottom fishing speactacular) http://www.vikingfleet.com/vikingnew...d=58&zoneid=14
