What is one of the better set ups for fishing for striper ? Rod, reel, etc. I am a fisherman at heart, but i like to have the NEW nice reels, with a nice NEW rod. Everything i have is a few years old, gotta go out and spend some money.

Will a Trion GX-7 Reel work, with maybe a Browning rod ? I think this is my pole i use for salmon, but it may be ok.

Hi fishon42,

It sounds just as good as anything that people would recommend. BTW, what Shimano reel?

Is this just for surf fishing?

Thanks,

It is a Shimano Solstace Spinning reel, nothing fancy but it works. I use the same reels and rods for just about any fish, especially ocean. Then of course i have a small trout pole for freshwater.

Have been using a pair of GLoomis SWR843Cs matched with a Calcutta 400 since 1997 for chunking, clamming and jigging bass. great setup.

Shop around and you put together a good used setup. Over the winter I bought a nice used Shimano 4500 baitrunner for 45.00 and nice used StCroix spinning rod for 75.00. If I bought them new it would have over double the price.

I'd better put my two cents worth in here because I see about 15 great replys and about 15 great combos.  As amater of fact I probably have over 100 different rods and as many reels in the store that in certain conditions could be considered "Striper Rods" and I have chosen every one because in some way I feel it is the BEST for a certain situation.

I feel many anglers limit themselves  to one or two rods for an unlimited number of fishing situations.  With todays quality tackle at reasonable prices, in many cases the BEST is pricy and overkill for many situations.  Dumping your wallet on one rod may  limit your  options. After all, if you ever do go on a golf course or happen to flip to the golf channel, look how many clubs they carry around in those bags, and Golfers are hitting the same round ball every time. 

You probably have boxes of lures going after different fish of various sizes in all kind of weather conditions.  Every spot and every bait is different. 

When you are looking for tackle think about details how you fish and ask questions that help narrow down the search, and don't make the mistake of buying by price tag. 

The Ugly Stick Baitrunner combo mentioned is probably one of the best and toughest combos available for the money, and If you are going chunking it will do the job, but for throwing lures or jigs, give me a decent graphite 6-1/2' to 7' extra fast action in medium heavy and I'll be hooking fish you didn't even know existed.

Great advice.

I love Shimano Baitrunners.  They last forever.  I got my 6500 when they were selling for 99. 

One other thing you can do with this combo is snack bunker when needed.  Like everyone has said, great combo.

Every one here is on the money, you can never go wrong with a shimano bait runner.I have a 6500 and a 4500 and I like them better than my stradics. The new stradics arent noisy like the ones I have,but your going to pay more for them. Its really a personal preference,but you get what you pay for. Look at Tica rods, they are reasonable, and hold up very well.

From my experiences, Shimano reels hold up the best. I own an 8+ yr. old stradic, two 4 year old spheros, two 5 yr. old cadiff's. All of the above are used at least once a week, usually 2 or 3 times. Only basic mainteance has been performed on these,   new washers, worm gears, etc.

I also own a pair of tld stars I use for trolling about 10 times a year for the past  8 years. Never an issue.

Although my current surf reel is daiwa, i still prefer any of my shimano's.
