I use the Goofish black spiral wrapped with a Penn Fathom 25NLD. I really like the rod, minimum line wrapping. The reel is too big but good enough for me. I haven't invested in a dedicated reel yet since I don't normally go deeper than 100".
I also primarily use the black goofish but with a shimano torium 16 loaded with 30lb braid. Have fished it over 700ft and got yellow edge grouper and it did fine but primarily fish it in 150-400ft. No complaints from either rod or reel from me.
Ok, I have convinced my wife to buy me a Torium 16PGA and Goofish left spiral SPJ rod For my birthday. Any recommendations for 3-4 must have jigs? I’ll be primarily bottom fishing 150 feet or less of water, but occasionally make a run deeper.
