I live in the mountains of swVA and mostly fish freshwater with ultralight spinning equipment and light flyrods. For the past 20 or so years I've been lucky enough to fish OBX a few times each year. I normally throw lures from the pier and surf fish with spinning rods. I just bought a casting rod and I'm trying to pick a reel. The rod is an OB Custom OBX Series, 11' 2-5 oz lures. I hope to throw lures/bait in the surf and bait fish from the pier. Can I get a reel that will throw 2 oz. lures as well as 5 oz. bait rigs? Should I just set the new rod/reel up for heavier baits and continue using my spinning rod for throwing lures in the surf? Using casting equipment isn't new to me but I have limited experience with it. I know there will be a huge learning curve but I'm looking forward to adding this to my saltwater experience. Thanks for any input.
