Very tough to find one rod / reel combo that can do it all.

A baitcaster reel has an advantage for Flounder when drifting. You can leave it in free spool with your thumb holding the line - then drop back when a Flounder bites or your sinker comes off bottom.

For LTJ - kinda the same bind. A rod that can handle a 2 oz jighead with a 10 inch BKD might be too heavy for a 1/2 oz head with a 5 inch BKD and vice versa.

I guess you'll have to weigh out which type fishing you'll do most of - then buy that outfit.

Both spinning and baitcaster will work in either situation.
