If you have never fished with a baitcaster before, save yourself the headaches and get a Abu Garcia 6500 with a levelwind

If you're going to be bait fishing with this rod, get a Penn 525 Mag. If you're going to be using it to throw artificials, get an Abu 6500 or 7000 (with levelwind).

It's just my 2 cents, but I don't like levelwinds on bait reels, but I woudn't plug without one. With the constant casting and retrieving you do when plugging, I can't be bothered to use my thumb to level the line on the spool. This is less of an issue with bait reels, because you cast so much less than you do when plugging. So with bait setups I use an open-face reel.

Use Power Pro and you don't need a shock leader
