I'm looking at getting a Fin Nor LT100 for halibut fishing this coming season. I want to start with just one is year, to be used by kids and women, and those new to halibut fishing who don't have the wrist strength to handle a larger Penn-type conventional reel. I've heard that for smaller-handed people the spinning setup is more natural and easier to deal with. I'm looking for a shorter (under 6 ft) rod with a medium action.
Any suggestions? (Knowing you guys, there's a lot of suggestions coming...thanks!)
