OK, guys,

What's your favorite Inshore / Flounder Fishing Rod(s) and /or Reel(s) ???

I'm talking about gear that would be used from shore, jetty, bridge, pier, etc . . . NOT gear used from a boat . The target species would be Flounder, Puppy Drum, Jacks, etc.

Here is my favorite setup . . . I have two of these .

Eagle Claw Crosswing Endurawrap Series IM6 CRW107 7’6” Heavy 12-30lb. ¼-2 oz. Flipping Stick.

Penn 525GS (not 525 Mag) spooled with 12-15lb Mono . . . Since I normally fish bait or slowly drag jigs with them, I have swapped the original 6.1:1 gears Penn 515-525SP 4.25:1 gears to increase cranking power and to slow the retrieve.

I have modded the rod by adding 2oz. of lead to the butt, for the balance point I prefer, and added Fuji rubber butt caps.

Here are a few pics . . .

I use a St Croix Tidemaster 8', 1/2 - 2 oz rod and either an ABU 6500 CS Mag (15 mono) or Shimano Curado 300EJ (Power handle replaced) with 30 lb braid/mono leader.

okuma epixor ef-30b spinning reel with 20lb power pro braid with a 20lb fluorocarbon leader on a penn allegiance2 7'0" fast action

Always had Penn products. Decided to give the okuma a try. Not sure why more people don't use them. VERY smooth reel.

Custom Seeker CSW705 with Quantum Hi speed or Daiwa Coastal low profile reel depending on required retrieval rate. Fast action blank that casts it full weight range with plenty of backbone for its weight class.

I've only just started seriously fishing this past year so my experience is limited. I'm pretty fond of my 6' bass pro tourney special rod with my shimano sahara 2500 spooled with 10lb braid and 30lb flouro leader. I use it for casting gotchas, spoons or whatever from the pier and use it in the saltwater creeks/inlet for flounder/reds/trout. It's really fun fighting a good sized blue or spanish mack on the little 6 footer.
