hey everyone. i'm a learner fisherman, got into it a couple years ago and currently have my 2 beach rods. one for bait and one for lures, have my squidding setup and a also a light spin combo. im planning on hiring a small boat with a friend soon and realised i dont have anything suitable to catch a big fish, on a boat. i wouldn't want to take my 12ft beach rod and look like a tool haha.
so just wondering if i could have some guidance.
rod im looking at: DAIWA SALTIST X 56-5/6S
Length: 168 cm (5'6") , Action Heavy , Taper Regular, Lure Weight 150 - 300g, Line Rating PE 5/6
reel im looking at: daiwa saltist nero 3000 or 4000
would this work? what reel size would be better out of those two? also what pound braid and leader would i put on such a combo?
i already have a light spin combo so i want this as something i can throw a whole squid on and go for a decent size fish
thankyou so much for any help and guidance!!
