I've got a chance to go out this summer for salmon shark, and was wondering what you recommend for equipment? I've done some reading on here, and talked to different people, and seem to be getting different answers.
In particular, what would you recommend for a reel? I can't afford the $500 stuff, but still want a decent one. Some folks tell me to just use halibut gear, while others tell me to make sure I get something with a lever drag. Whatever I get I'll use for both halibut and shark, but I want to make sure it is strong enough for shark. So what do I need?
One speed/two speed?
Any suggestions of models that fit in the $100-$200 range?
How would you compare the Okuma Titus with the Penn Senator 114 or 115?
Thanks guys! -JR
