Need a offshore fishing rod and reel

What is a good all around rod and real that won’t break the bank for catching tuna and other fish. Something universal but will do the job. I have only been a couple times and using the party boats gear kinda sucks. I would like to go more so any suggestions are appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Saragosa 10000 or 12000 spinning reel and spinning rod matched to the line you choose. I have mine spooled with 65lb braid and use a fluorocarbon leader. I really like the setup.

I have used smaller Talicas for chunking or jigging the spinning reel can handle that work too if you're looking for one.

This might be a bit light, but check out the BG8000 (or maybe 6500). Tuna guys can confirm.

I can personally confirm that is a stellar reel for the money. I've put one of mine through 8 YFT so far in the 60-90# range and it hasn't missed a beat yet.

That's good to know. I have 2-BG6500 for snapper, ling, mahi, etc. but haven't had a chance at anything bigger yet.

A guy on our trip landed 2 YFT up to 95# on his BG6500 on a Terez rod. I was impressed.

I bought one.

For what it's worth, Academy has a 20% coupon right now. You can pick one up for $103.99+tax.

Promo code is CC201820PCT
You can only use it on the website. They don't carry the 8000 series. It's the same reel with a bigger spool from what I can tell.

For a reel, I recommend the Quantum Cabo 80 or 100. I have an 80 and so far, it's been a rock solid reel. Much smaller and lighter than the Saragosa 10000 (have one of those, too). The 80 has a max drag of 55 pounds and the 100 has a max drag of 60 pounds.

I don't mean to hijack dabear post, but what about rod's, anyone have a non-$250 that will hold up to YFT? I have my BG6500 on some that will work for blackfin, but it'd take me a long time to land a YFT.

For jigging or casting tops/swimbaits?

I bought a cheap pair of tsunami rods at Cabela's for $59.99. A cracked guide/eye insert caused me to lose a good fish. The rod handled 2 dozen blackfin before that. I actually liked the rod, just double check the guides before you buy it. Mine wasn't beat up (brand new), but I guess I didn't look close enough at the eyes. I ended up returned the spinner and the conventional rod. I'll likely go with a rod from Pinnacle Marine (google them). They make a nice looking jigging rod for $169.95. They're highly regarded on several sites. If that's too much, it seems the Ugly Stick Tiger Lite is a good buy at $65-80 depending on rating. Cabelas, FTU, West Marine, and Academy carry them as well as the common Shimano Trevalla, Terez, and the Taravela (which I can't find a review on). Go in and see them in person.
