I am in the market for a rod & reel that will allow me to cast into the gates (about 120 Yards). I have seen a few guys below L & d 12 that do it and it looks easy. I have bought a couple of long rods and the best I can do is about 85 Yds. I am sure it's in the rod and Reel so what do i need. I'm 6-2(155 lbs)56 years old and not the strongest guy around but I sure would like to be able to get to the gates when the current doesn't allow me to run my remote boat.
