  How much to spend???
  Posted by: old_user on Jan-01-12 9:01 PM (EST)
 

I love the Shimano reels for reds and snook in Florida. I have a shimano symetre 2500 ($80) with powerpro 2#/10 braided line. But I've fished with the sedona ($48) and the sahara ($68). They are all good, but the more you spend the smoother the reel and drag and typically they will stay smooth longer especially with the harsh conditions of kayak fishing. I pair all my reels to a hurricane Calico Jack 7' 1 pc med heavy rod ($50)I find them to be superior to redbone rods and both longevity and feel and are cheaper. Tie the braided line to about 4' of 30# flourocarbon leader and you're all set. Fish the mangroves with jerk worms if the water is less than 2' or clear 1/4 oz DOA shrimp if the water is more than 2'. Good Luck!
