Default Good wreck fishing rod and reels?

Got my boat so now I'm starting to look at rod and reels. What size bait cast and open face reels should I look for and what length rods? Also what are good middle of the road brands?

Tsunami rods are good bang for the buck, spinning reels would be 4000-6000 class. 6'-7' rods, bait caster would be smaller avets or the Shimano tr200 or 100 orany others I. That size.

Shimano torium for wreck or deep dropping is a good starter reel with a good ratio.

How deep and what are you targeting?

I have 4 of the Shimano Charter Special 2000 series reels that I really like. These would obviously be too small for some stuff but I've caught tons of triggers and sea bass on them. I also use them for any type of bottom fishing in the bay (flounder/spot/croaker).

Kinda figuring $300-$400 rod and reel. Plan on getting 3 open face and 3 bait caster style reels.

I second the tsunami rods. I have 4 of them for bottom fishing. 2 are MH 7' and 2 are ML 7'. I like the MH personally, but I use the ML's for flounders. I spooled them all with 20# big game mono backing and 30# braid then I tied a rod's length of flouro leader on with dropper loops for the hooks. Seems to be working well. I'm using Daiwa sealine (20's I think) line counter reels because I had them from the my walleye and salmon days. Think I paid about $90 per rod at Ricks bait and tackle in Long Neck.

The new Shimano Tranx line is incredible, light and smooth. Rods are what you pay for and personal to your style and feel for fishing.
