I realize that this is an old thread, but, living and fishing in Palau, I have a locals perspective. My recommendation would be to get a spinning outfit. Nobody who is serious about popping and stickbaiting uses an overhead in the islands.
I think the 50# Ugly would be ok for a cheap rod (saltiga Ulua might be ok too on a budget) and I would go for a Spheros 14000 (or thereabouts) FB with PE#6 -PE#8 depending on your tastes. As for the GTs not getting eaten by sharks... it happens anyfish is slow once hooked.
What ever you bring, you will have a ball, no doubt, dont forget to bring HEAPS of lures, the sharks love them!!
