basic all purpose spinning setup - reel size and line weight?
I come down to the AMI area every spring from MN, and am getting together a couple saltwater specific setups together to travel with, versus bringing my 1 piece freshwater setups.
I have two 7'6" MH Cabelas Salt Striker spinning rods coming, and am looking to pair up reels to them.
These will be used for all purpose beach, shoreline, and pier fishing. I do have a bigger setup for using on the beach with a bait runner, big cut bait, etc. I know this isn't "ideal", but bringing down 6 rods every time is just not feasible. I plan on traveling with these 3 rods going forward.
I'm thinking a 4000 series Fin Nor Lethal reel, with 15 lb line.
Is that reel size going to be what I want, or do i want to go one size bigger or smaller? For line, would it be suggested to go with braid, floro, or mono?
