I get to the coast a couple times a year and do some surf fishing wherever we rent a house. I've been wanting to get a spinning rod setup to do some topwater with a plug and diamond jigs. I've had too much advice to make a decent decision on length, rod action, reel size, etc. I believe the last was a 8' medium steelhead rod with a 2500 size Penn on it. For only a couple times per year, I don't need too costly of a setup, but not junk either. Can y'all give me some help to get started? Thanks!
