I recently purchased a Daiwa Saltist Hyper Speed 30 lever drag (LD30HSH) and wanted get some suggestions on rods and line. Over the past three years I've gotten hooked to offshore fishing, going on charters and friends boats always using their gear. I finally decided start building my offshore arsenal. After using Saltist LD's in Grand Isle to wrangle YFT's I was sold. I was shopping for the standard saltist single-speed LD but got such a good deal on the Hyper Speed I couldn't pass it up. I mostly fish within 30 miles of the Destin pass targeting grouper, snapper, aj, cobia, king. Bottom fishing 60% and trolling 40% of the time. I would like for this to be a utility set-up, being my only reel, until I get the $$$ for a few different sizes. Trying to decide between 30lb (??? yds), 40 lb (380 yds), or 50 lb power pro (280 yds) but I can't decide what sucks worse getting spooled or broken off. Thanks in advance for any advice. Glad to have found the forum.
