My wife and I would like to try some salt water fishing this year. This will be the first time for me in years. I used to fish the York River, around the Coleman Bridge for spot and croakers, that kind of thing years ago. At the time I used to use the same tackle I used for freshwater bass fishing, and had a ball, however at the time it seems my bass tackle was a bit heavier that it is now. Any suggestions on what would be a good rod for this type of fishing? I'm in pretty good shape for reels still. This isn't going to be something we'll do a lot, just sort of a change of pace for us from spinnerplugging for bass.
