The best sea fishing rods and reels are high performance, durable and resistant to the corrosive nature of saltwater. There are many good options available on the market and the rod and reel technology is always improving. Trolling rods should be heavy duty and have the ability to handle a large weight load, while casting rods should be flexible enough to handle powerful game fish. The reels should have a strong drag and a large line capacity.
