I am going to Florida to visit a friend and we are going to be some surf fishing. He has an extra smaller pole however we are going to try to do some shark fishing from the surf and neither of us have anything big enough for this. I am looking for advice on what size, type or even brands of rod, reel, line leaders etc you suggest. this is something that I am hoping to use several times a year so I am not looking to go overkill and spend to much however I am not looking for something for a one time use either. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
