    Shimano Curado E series. You can usually get them for a decent price.

    There are no stripers up around my area but I fish for surf perch a lot and I use a Daiwa Tatula Type R and a medium power steelhead rod. But for begginer, I would definitely recommend a spinning reel. Daiwa makes some great saltwater spinning reels.

    Spinning over bait caster for your application. Best thing to do is go hang out where you plan to fish for a day and see what kind of gear people are using. Save yourself some time and money.

    +1 on this. For pier casting and big open water, I would opt for a spinning reel getting back into it...

    Preference?

    Good morning ladies and Gents!!

    I am getting more into salt water fishing (mainly from surf, pier or jetty). What I am looking to accomplish is get a beginner low profile bait caster reel so that I can throw lures fur striper and surf perch. Got any ideas?
