Default Help me out?

Hey guys I'm looking to get a new rod and reel here pretty soon for some trout and redfish. I need a rod that is good for lures (Mirrodines, DOA Shrimp, etc.). Im also trying to keep it under 200$ for both the rod and reel. Any suggestions? Thanks.

Shimano Calcutta 200B with a 7' MH Falcon Coastal rod. It'll miss your budget by about $100 but in my opinion, it'll be well worth the extra time/money. I've got multiple setups similar to that, and LOVE them.

Oh, and WDE!

spinning or baitcast? if you go spinning just grab you a shimano symetre 4000 with a 7ft falcon or allstar rod. All can be had at academy for under $200.

Id prefer spinning. Do you guys know if the Penn Fierce spinning reel is any good? It seems pretty nice. Thanks for the suggestions guys I will look in to those.

I have a Penn Fierce 4000, and it's been great --- not only on the wallet, but on catching fish, too!

Only got it this past Christmas, though, and don't fish but a few times a month. But everything I read about it before I got it said it's a pretty good bang for your buck; and that's held true so far.

I have a penn fierce 6000, it's way to big for reds but it has a great drag system. And it's easy on the wallet. I would suggest a fierce 3000 or 4000

I'm a Shimano fan and have a couple Sahara's for my inshore spinning application. I've never had any problems with them. Recently, I've spent a lot of money on a Stradic only to find that (aside from quality), i'm still catching the same fish. Just my thoughts.

I do not know much about the Penn Fierce, but I bought a Penn Battle for surf fishing and I am pretty impressed. Very smooth real. I got the reel and a penn surf stick for right at 200$, so I assume you could find an inshore set up for that price as well.

Recently got a Revo SX 7.1:1 on a Bass Pro Carbonlite Rod with microguides. It's a low profile baitcaster but the autobrake system is amazing, you almost can't backlash it. Outcasts anything I've owned and everyone I'm around. If you shop it right you can get the two for right at $200. I throw everything from 1/8 jig heads with soft plastics to top water on it and it's great for everything.
