I used to use a Daiwa Sealine 900h/910h with 80 lb braid which is the Daiwa equivalent of a Penn Senator 9/0. Better constructed and can be had for a good deal on eBay.

I think a 9/0 would be really heavy to fish all day

Shimano Torium or Penn Fathom... size dependent on depth you'll be fishing

I’ve used everything from spinners to penn 30wides. Any reel will get the job done. But you will end up miserable in the process and not want to hook up again, especially to a bigger golden. That being said, look for a reel with about a 4-1 ratio. A lot of the two speed conventional reels these days have a low gear below 4-1 and that will get the job done. I use a penn fathom 25 and a canyon hs-18 2 speed. The canyon is amazing. Low gear I’m tile fishing. High gear I’m jigging for tuna. Good luck.

Penn Baja Special with 60 lb solid core braid on a Connely live bait kingfish rod, 7'. I think all in you're probably $350. I don't think it gets cheaper than that to be honest.

I've caught tiles up to 50 lbs on that.

I use an Accurate BX 500 2 speed. Works great for deep water Tiles.

All tackle is having an avet blem sale. The HX 2speed with 80# saltiga braid or even the HXJ w 55# saltiga braid will work well. I'd get the MC version so you don't need to put your thumb on the spool to drop. They have good speed plus reel grunt in low. The other smaller 2 speed raptors with MC will work but even the 6/3 gearing won't be as fast as the larger diameter HX at 5/2 A good spiral wrapped rod will make it much less tiring when your reeling up a toad.

I've probably said this at least 10x before to people but I've said it again.

Do not get a single speed reel that has any more than a 4:1 retrieve or 2 speed reel with at least the low gear somewhere in that range. Everyone thinks high speed is better until they are pumping and reeling for 10 minutes with a 50 lb tile on the other end of the line. Or their forearms are cramping up from cranking 2 lbs of lead up from 600' + all day at high speed.

I love the retrieve of 4.3:1 and the drag of 27 lbs on the Baja Special.
