Thought I'd get myself started on this forum with an introduction and a question. Lived in Santa Cruz all my life except for 2 years in New York. I'm an avid river fisher but I want to start hitting the surf. Can't get enough steelhead but anything that bites what I'm throwing is good. My question is about gear for getting mainly surfperch, but an occasional striper or halibut wouldn't hurt. I was thinking a 10' St Croix Premier surf rod paired with an Abu 6601C4, hoping to be able to dead stick it and throw lures with this set up. Any thoughts?
My biggest this season.
