I did hobby drinking beer and surf fishing every summer in obx for a decade and after upgrading a few times i standardized on Shimano Socorro 10000FB filled with braid paired with 11' ugly sticks bws 1100 rods This was around 150 per rod. Though like other people said buying a cheap combo set for $50 while you are down there is not a bad option either. The big thing to buy before you go down there is weights, you will need a selection depending on the weather that day and they are pricey.

What I really like about the shimano reels is the price point and the parts availability, especially extra spools. You will get rays biting, they will not let go, so you either land them, your line is going to break or you are going to cut it to save your rod. I like to have a few extra spools setup so i can recover quickly when this happens.


The past few years we have been going to emerald island instead where the surf is much less rough and you could get away with heavy freshwater tackle.

I've never used that rod, and it's only rated up to 5oz, but you'd be able to fish multiple ways on fair weather days.
I'd like to 2nd the recommendation for the big Penn Surf Spin combo...the only one I ever used besides the old 12' Great White Salt Surf Spin Combo that Zebco or someone like that used to make(or have someone like Penn make for them under license).

Whatever you get, please, please don't ever bring it spot or perch fishing on a charter boat.

Surf rods on a boat are good for one thing and it's not fishing.

different bay but yeah we used to, then the stripers came back and no trout.

And no, about six feet is all I want to deal with on a boat, surf rod are for beaches and even then not needed unless there is an offshore bar to deal with, plenty of fish just past the breakers and around here we have pretty much of a shore break most of the time.
