Hey John! Howsit going buddy? I'm sorry that I never responded to your query about a new fishing rod. I actually have not been back to Get Reeled for some time. No real reason I suppose, i guess I forgot about it. lol. Anyways I had an incredible fishing season in summer of 2010. i was the busiest I have ever been, and I landed some of the biggest fish of my career. We run a five month long halibut derby during our season in Homer. with monthly big fish prizes and a Biggest fish Jackpot. well In august my clients won two big fish prizes and we also won the Jackpot. A young woman on my boat caught and landed a 277.6 pound halibut. It ended up being the largest fish of the season and she took home $40,610! it was an awesome fish 87 inches long. It took her 45 minutes to land out of 140 feet of water. We were targeting Ling cod at the time of the hook up and the fish hit an 11 inch white grubtail jig. All in all a great season. I actually am in the market for a new charter boat for the upcoming year. I will be purchasing a 28 foot Bertram and outfitting it with new YANMAR Diesels. we are pretty excited for it.

As for a fishing rod (if you haven't already purchased one) An inexpensive option would be the Shakespeare Tidewater series. I used to run them on my charter boat, I have since upgraded. The tidewaters run about $40 to $60 and have a line rating of either 40 to 80 pound or 40 to 130 pound. They are strong rods and are very durable. They can handle any fish and we ran 80lb Tuffline on them. The reel's I used were Penn GLD Grafite 120 lever drag. They are fairly priced at around $160.
This is a tough and durable combo that will handle any fish you put to it.
