I try to go on a couple group charters a year fishing out of Mass or Connecticut for Cod or whatever else may be biting. I'm tired of using the typical rental equipment and would like to buy a decent setup for myself, preferably around the 300.00 mark or under generally i prefer spincast to bait but i am not opposed to either, maybe even a 2 speed reel open to suggestions

If you like spinners, the Daiwa BG is an excellent choice. They run on the big size, for their displayed capacity (Eg, BG3000 is like a Penn Battle 4000). As for rods, A Penn Battalion is great, or the Prevail II, a little cheaper. If it is group charters, and dropping baits tough, the rod is less of an issue vs a surf one, or one specific for lures. Get a MH one of your preferred length (I assume 6-7ft if on a boat) and the action you prefer, brand doesn't matter as much. I have an UglyStik and fancier Daiwas, Shimanos and Penn's, fish can't tell the brand as far as I know.

Good luck.

Irving I've never went on charters out of Mass or CT But I've sailed out of Orient Pt. LI . The charter Captains there probably would allow you to use any tackle but they prefer to use the tackle they prefer.

Charter boats generally have good equipment
" Head Boat" , " party boat" not so much


I've fished for cod at Cox's ledge we used Penn senator 4/0 spooled with #40 and#50 lb pink Ande ,rods were pretty stout ,with a little tip action ,medium heavy I'd say . In the northeast Atlantic sometimes the lead sinkers get up to 20 oz depending so you need beefy rods & reels if you asked me
