    Default Surf Spanish setup

    Looking for a rod/reel combo that doesnít break the bank. Iím aware that I need a pretty high speed reel.

    Depends on what your bank is as saltwater rated reels arenít cheap. The Shimano Nasci is a very nice high speed reel for medium saltwater use. Itís $100 everywhere. Pair it with an All Star or Falcon 7í6Ē rod (check Academyís website) and for less than $200 you have a sweet setup. Doubles as a great inshore red and trout setup too. But always rinse the rod and reel after every trip no matter what you buy.

    What do you have available in your rod / reel arsenal now?
    Things to look at extra fast action rod, at least 7.6 or longer, 3000 to 4000 series reel spooled with 10 to 15# braid.
    Spanish are not normally a target species from the beach. More of an opportunity by catch.
    Better off targeting them from a pier. Then any rod & reel setup will work.
    Hope this helps ....... ICM

    My wife keeps saying I don't listen to her .... or something like that.

    A cheap option. Berkley Cherrywood 7' medium heavy fast rod will be about $25. Daiwa LT4000 reel will be $60-70, need to shop. Worked well throwing 1 oz Kastmasters for blues and spainish. I don't live on the coast and only surf fish maybe 1 week a year. Setup also ok on pier and river catfish.

    Okuma Rockaway is a nice metal rod for the money, 9 or 10'er for slinging metal from the sand

    Sorry for the late response. A lot of helpful responses and Iíll look at all the options suggested. Iím think 150$ or less probably. The rod/reel setup I have for bait is definitely too heavy to throw comfortably.
