Default reccomend a decent setup

I am looking to upgrade my tackle. I want a versitile set up that will allow me to fish for striper, fluke, and blues. I want it to be on the lite side, and I have about $200-$250 to spend. I fish mostly in the bay, but occasionally go on the charters near shore.

Thanks in advance for your ideas.

Conventional or spinning? for a spinning rod I love the new tsunami air wave, they are the lightest rod I have ever used!! for conventional boat rods for trolling or bottom fishing I just buy a cheapo cause the difference between a 40$ rod and a $300 rod isn't that noticeable when you are trolling. for coventional reels lots of people use Shimano tld's or penn gti's if you wanna go cheaper you can't go wrong with a penn senator's
If you haven't started using braid jump on the band wagon and go buy some Powerpro you will never go back to mono!!

I live on the bay , And fish out of the BI
It's pretty tough to get only one rod to fish the bay and outside.
Get a 6'6-7' long rod rated 15-40 lb with a med to fast action and an ambasadeuer 5500 or 6500 a Penn 310 will do all you need. I am not that familiar with the current models available in a spinner But I have a Daiwa 2600 SS and a penn 440 which is a bit smaller. go to Fishbone's on Lacey road or L&H in waretown. Your best bet really would be Grumpies B&T in Seaside, they have an even better assortment and ,and they are open till 10pm Mike makes some fine rods and Paul repairs all make reels on site. He even does the trick upgrades
Give me a PM if you have any ?s

It is hard to do Striper/Blues and Fluke (rod also used for Winter Flounder, Sea Bass and Porgies) with the same rod. A fiberglass 7' 15-40 lb rod with a Shimano TLD-15 or Penn International 975 CSLD would be my choice for Stripers?blues and for Fluke a 6' 6" 10-20 or 12-30 lb rod with an Garcia 6600 or Penn 965. I usually fish 20 lb mono for Stripers/Blues and 12 lb mono or 30 lb braid for Fluke.

try a 7ft Crowder rod with med action and a Penn 750 reel. Great set up. Shimano 4500 Baitrunner is also a sweet reel if you are looking for the baitrunner. This will be around 225$

thanks guys. I will take a look at these set ups. I have a nice penn spinning real that I was using. The set up is a bit on the heavy side and I really start to get tired using it after a long day. I may just put it on a liter rod. or get a smaller and smaller rod to cut down on the weight of the set up.
