    That's what I was thinking. First jack I got was a couple years ago on 15lb braid down cocoa beach Florida. That first run was epic even for this small guy. He inhaled a gotcha plug.

    I went with the penn 6500 spinfisher. There's only 1-1.5 oz difference between the 5500 and 6500 hopefully not a noticeable difference. I'm a huge penn fan. Especially the spinfisher line. Im sure there are lighter reels but I like that it's a closed system. Makes it nice for a surf reel as this rod won't be just for cobia. Prob gonna soak a live eel from surf or cut mullet while me and the wife and kiddos play when I'm not on the pier.
