I am looking to add another rod/reel combo to my arsenal. Because I am an Co-Angler and a Kayak fisherman I need to limit the number of rods I have on the boat at one time and need to combine uses for them where possible.
I'm looking to get a Heavy rod/reel combo to do things with heavy braided line such as punching, flipping, frogging, and big custom poured swim baits(~6"-9") if possible. I know I really need a slow gear ratio for the swimbaits and the opposite for the punching setup, but am trying to figure out a way to combine the two into one rod.
I'm more interested in a reel suggestion than a rod, so what kind of reel would you suggest? I'm thinking a 6.4-1 would be a good middle ground. I would just need to slow down the swim bait presentation.
My goal is to keep the reel under $150.
Thank you for any useful input you can provide.
