    I haven't been fishing in the Ocean surf for many years. We plan to camp by the ocean in Maryland in August, and I have an 11' surf rod, but no longer have a reel. I would like to buy a reel that is in good shape, but not too expensive to match up to my rod. I guess it would need to be able to handle up to around 20 LB test, and have about 200 yards capacity, or whatever the configuration they use is for ocean surf fishing.

    Wallmart may be your best bet, never know what you will get buying used. Why ruin a trip to the ocean and have to end up buying a new one anyway. I live between rehobeth and Ocean city near the ocean mainly catching sand sharks right now. But fun anyway. Lou
