I am using an old Penn 350 level line baitcaster. I want to get out past the second sand bar. I can wade out a little bit and cast. How long should it be? Are there any really junky brands to stay away from?
It's okay to eat fish because they don't have any feelings.

Depends on what you want to spend. Penn battalion is cheap and a great rod, penn carnage is slightly better. There's also st croix mojo surf rod or avid...
I use saragosa reel on carnage and can easily cast 140+ yards using a lure slightly over 1oz
