I go to the outer banks mabey 5-6 times a year and always hit up the pier. I want to start king fishin.. I have a 10 ft surf combo that I think will work as a anchor rod but need a good rod for the bait... I just bailed out $700 to get my kayak and rig it up so I dont have alot of money.. Plus, this rod will probably only be used mabey 10 times per year max..

Penn 309 spooled with 20# Ande. I've got a pair of them that are 30+ yrs old and have caught 25-30# kings, at least i cobi over 30, several amberjacks and a bunch of reef fish off the head boats. They probly need drag washers but other than that they're as good as they were when the came out of the box.

Yep...these have a low gear ratio but the drag and reel are bullet proof. There are lots of these baby's still on the water today. I even have one rigged up.

I was thinking about a Penn Special Boat (6'6", 20-40 lb) paired with Penn Peer 309 Levelwind (red face, metal spool)
good combo?

I preferr Shimano SpeedMaster mark 6, because of it's a high speed retrieve & no level wind.........

Call Mark he's loves to trade & knows alot about fishing. Have traded with him in the past & he easy to deal with.......ICM

Line color won't matter to the fish, the line shouldn't be in the water 'till after he's hooked. Your ability to see the line is more important.
We used to use 20# single strand leader in bronze color, this part will be visible to the fish.

i bought 2 used shimano speedmaster IV's recently -- tore them completely down, cleaned, oiled/greased, etc. impressed with how relatively simply they are to disassemble & put back together. new price is ca. $120. great reels for the money, and the fast retrieve could be very important to regain line fast on a king that's running back toward you. FWIW // joel

I really like the daiwa sea-line reels. They cast great and have smooth drag. use them for nearshore trolling, caught mahi, kings and sharks on them with no issue. reasonably priced too, good multi purpose reels with fast gear ratios. Heck, we even have one of the 50 sizes for tarpon and drum fishing. put braid on em and u can catch pretty much any inshore fish!!
