So I am heading over to Galveston Island this weekend with 4 friends-- SUPER NEW to coast, 1st trip-- We plan on hitting SWP, 91st Pier and maybe TCD? I currently have plenty of tackle:
10ft ProAngler with Penn Fierce II-- Spooled with 20lb MONO (I have 30lb MONO for a leader)
7ft ML Ugly Stik Gx2 with some 40-50$ abu spinning reel-- Spooled with 20lb MONO
7ft MH Zebco with a 30$ spinning reel-- 12lb MONO
6 1/2 M - Some cheap rod with a 30$ spinning reel-- 12lb MONO
I am hoping to land a bull red/shark of some kind with my 10 footer and would like to ask you guys for suggestions on what I should change about the rig-- I know I need some sort of steel leader and like a 9/0 or so circle hook?
Anything to help would be great! I can use the smaller rods for reds/flounder/specks with what is on them currently--
Any changes/recommendations welcome!
