    Not bad. I fish alot of saltwater and brackish water. But I’d have to say the reel I agree is crucial. Plenty of backing. Not so much rod wt. I’m able to handle albacore and stripers with a 4 to 7 wt rod. Also speckled trout. Red drum with a 7 to 8 wt. The most important is having a lot of backing.
