Default Boat rod & Reel combo advice

I'm planning on going Striper fishing on a boat and wanted some suggestions on setting up a rod & reel combination to use. I have some light action rods & reels, but feel that these will be too light for some of the Stripers that I may encounter. Also, what size line do you reccomend as well?

Thnx, George

Default Re: Boat rod & Reel combo advice

I know this thread is kind of old, but in case the op is still on here, here's my two cents.

1. If you want to troll for stripers and bluefish, you can't go wrong with the Penn 320 levelwind, spooled with 30lb braid, or Berkley Fireline. Top it off with a 50lb Seaguar Fluorocarbon leader.

2. If you want to cast metal, or live baits, I've been very pleased with my Okuma Epixor 80 baitfeeder reel. I have my spooled with 50lb power pro and topped off with a 50lb Seaguar Fluorocarbon leader. The reel is paired with a Fin Noir 50lb class spinning rod. You will be able to slay stripers and blues with it, or throw lures at football tuna.
