I'm looking for a couple of reels for bottom fishing,one for flounder,another for Stripers.Can you use casting reels like Avets or Toriums for bottom fishing.What about Shimano Tekotas, it says it a trolling reel,what do think ?

If you get an Avet SX and spool it with braid, it will serve you very well for Stripers, wrecks (Tog/Sea Bass), Drum, and deep water Fluking. I've got 2 SX setups and vouch for them 100%.

For Fluke in the bay (shallow water), it's still a fine reel, but a different rod would be preferable. You don't need/want the backbone in a shallow bay that you do on a wreck or for Stripers.
