Just curious to what's being used out there for inshore.

Obviously multiple answers are ok.

So looks like the average is probably a 3000 size spinner with 15lb braid?

really depends on what I'm fishing for. Trout/red I use a 2500 series shimono with 8lb braid, I also use a 440 ssg with braid for flounder or mono for other things. The one constant about my fishing is a flouro leader on everything.

I use a bait caster and 10lb mono for lures. For live bait and light lures I use a 4000, 3000, and 2500 spinning reel with either 10lb braid or 8lb mono.

Yes you can. Seems Wal-Mart online carries the Penn Sargus 3000 for the same $59 as the Fierce. The other Sargus sizes are $79. They also carry the Okuma trio 3500 for $62. I'm trying to get a feel for what will best suit me besed on what you guys in the know use.

I love my 4000 Sargus. It has seen use on a boat, kayak fishing, wade fishing, and surf fishing. Great reel for the price.

Spend a little more and get the battle combo for 109 it seems to be getting legit reviews. U gushed with one yesterday and it was nice even the rod which surprised me.
