    Default Fishing Pole advice please

    Ok so I think my fishing poles are rather small looking compared to what I see everyone else using around here. So what should I look for in a fishing pole that I can use in Saltwater? I would probably be using it for fishing off piers or possibly off shore casting. What length rod should I get and what type of real? Any specific features I should look for ... and where would be a good place to buy them?

    My daughter and her boyfriend are down for the week is there any specific type of fish they might be fishing for off the pier this time of year around St. Augustine or Flagler?

    Thanks in advance for any info.

    On the pier I would think a 9 foot would do. I don't fish off the pier so I could be wrong. Off the beach I use 12 foot rods made by Bimini Bay with Penn 850 spinning reels. That is probably more than you will need for just messing around. Thinking about this you might want to go to, I hate to say it but Wmart should have something that is relatively inexpensive. Remember to lightly hose the rod and reel off after each use. Also back off the drag when you store it.
    Buy your leaders at Wmart, also hooks, weights, and line. Try to stay out of the bait shops, they are really, really proud of their stuff. The one at High Bridge is pretty reasonable though in a pinch.

    Oops, don'[t forget a sand spike or holder to put your rod in at the beach.

    I guess they no longer use 10-ft cane fishing poles off the pier anymore, 'eh?

    I can remember them from when I was a kid...people fished from the bridges over the Halifax River with cane poles and the line just dropped straight down and waited for a fish to bite the bait.
