Okay I found the right reel wich is the abu garcia 7000ic3. This reel seems to be what the boc generally refers to as the best all round. Now I know what line I am going to get and that is the power pro 65lb red phantom. The only thing that I am not all the way decided on is rod. I know what length I want but brand is giving me fits. I want a 9' rod for sure. I am leaning towards catmaxx or maybe king Kat. I need a little input on this though. Does any body have any suggestions on what would make this the perfect or near perfect setup?
