I am looking at gearing up to do some wreck fishing out of Ocean City Md this spring & was hoping you guys can help me out on which rods & reels would be the best? Thanks Charlie

Lami 7040C with a Torium 16 loaded with 50# PP. For light applications I use an Avets SX mounted on a Falcom XXH coastal. For deep dropping just got a Tekota mounted on a Tallus trolling stick. There are cheaper alternatives that will work just as well. BPS has a nice muskie rod that goes for about 30$ and the Catmax rods seem to be popular. For reels the big Abu's are nice as well as the Newells and Penn reels desgined for bottom fishing. Most of it's just personal preference. Try to play around with them all and figure out what you like.

Take a peek at the shimano charter special. It's a lever drag/level wind reel with decent capacity for about $120.
