Check out the Abu Garcia line of casting reels for your St. Croix. Do a search on this board and on the forums at www.reddrumtackle.com and www.hatterasjack.com for "Blue Yonder," commonly misspelled as "Blu Yonder." This reel, and the Penn 975, have strong followings in the Mid-Atlantic among the surf-fishing set.

What size plugs are you looking to throw?

Blue Yander is a good ree, but there are others that will fit that rod nicely aswell. Check around and get a feel. I own Diawa SlOSH 30's and love them. They are darn near indestructable. I also have an Avet MXL I am really getting to like alot. Penn 525 mags are a good match up as well. If you will mostly be fishing NJ you probably don't need to worry about line capacity too much. There isn't a striper alive that can spool a blu yander or penn 525. Just see what feels best to you but you really can't get a bad reel.

I own a blue yonder and a avet mxl. both are sweet reels. Have the avet on a 12ft 6-10oz and the blue yonder on a lami 11ft 3-8oz. the record or the blue yonder would be a excellent choice. As well as a 6500ctc3 mag elite is sweet. sooo many choices.

best bet is to go to your local fishing supply and match up a few reels to a few different rods. nothing like feeling it before buying.
