Just getting into deepsea fishing, got a boat , keen to get a decent rod and reel, any ideas on a decent brand at a reasonable price of course. Mainly been a beach fisherman so any tips would be appreciated as well.

Mate,you most probably should of put this up on the Tackle and Accessories Chat.You have just entered a whole new world of tackle,where you can spend as little or as much as you like.As in every thing you only get what you pay for,[well most of the time.]I use Shimano and Daiwa reels mostly,but that,s not to say that other reels are not as good.I mainly use Live Fibre rods but then again that is only my choice.I find these rods offer good value for the money.There has been a lot posted about this on Ausfish so do a bit of a search and like everything else do some reading on the subject and visit a good tackle store and get to know someone with offshore experience.You will get a lot of good imformation here I,ve just started it off.All the best.
