Travel shark fishing setup options?

Asigg2006Asigg2006 Posts: 4 Greenhorn
Hello everybody, I have been looking for a travel sized shark fishing setup for the surf that can also be universally used. I am looking at getting a Penn slammer 4 in a 10500 and pairing it with a Tsunami carbon shield 2 heavy weight fast action blue water 2 pieced rod. I would assume if it is made for tuna and tarpon as well as other pelagics it could handle a shark. Would this setup work for sharks? Also I want to use a conventional also and I can’t find a 2 piece heavy or extra heavy action rod for a conventional for the life of me. Does anyone know of a 2 piece conventional rod for sharks? I want to pair it with a Penn squall leveled wind 50 size. Thank you.

    The Slammer in a 10500 size is probably more reel than you actually need if you are targeting your normal spinners and black tips off the beach. I can’t talk to targeting bigger stuff as I haven’t and don’t. I catch the above sharks on a Fin Nor 100 (has worked out really well) and a Spinfisher 6500. They work like a charm on 80 -130is pound fish off the beach. Can’t talk to a heavy conventional setup as I don’t use them in the salt.
