need to figure out what size reel for Aj and yellowfin. how much drag should i be looking for in a reel to handle those fish. I have an avet 6/3 2 spd but i dont know if it is quite big enuff to turn an aj before it gets me in the structure.I rented a reel last time(newell) and never did get hooked up . broke off several times and right at hookset. I think the line was rotten. not looking for spinning tackle as i may need to go to the rail. need a good quality rod and reel that wont break the bank.also i like 2 spd reels. thanks. Also Mcgolfer how can i get in touch? i looked in the phone book but didnt see a listing.I'm the other okie that likes saltwater.
