12/20 lb rod .something like a penn squadron or regiment or ugly stick salt .30lb braid (cheep as chips off ebay) and a reasonable quality small multiplier,again penn a 15 size.will suit most boat fishing applications.spend more on the reel than the rod as it takes a lot of abuse when pumping fish like pollock or cod from wrecks!

20/30 should do you mate. 50 will be overkill and as nice as using a 12/20 is, you ainít trotting for dace!
Reelwise your fixed spool will be fine just pump, wind & rinse
Even if the rod is spaced for a multiplier you are only dropping a lead off the boat, unless you are like my mate who likes to cast 80 yards away from where we just motored an hour to and used gps to find

I was hoping for cheap and cheerful for this kit

If a fixed spool will cope OK I'll use my shimano spod reel and look out for a £50 rod

What class should I be looking at? 20lb?

I know youíre partial to a nice bit of kit mate, but any old cheap boat rod will do what you want.
I have an ugly stick and a penn something or other, both with glass tips and although they weigh a ton they wonít break in a hurry and do mostly everything my terez does.
Whatever reel is in the sale at the time will do, 2nd hand gold emblem maybe.. just rinse it off after

I usually do a few boat trips with mates through the summer and I'd like to get my own rod and reel for a few reasons. the two main ones being I want to use braid, and most charter boats seem to use cheap mono, and secondly I struggle a bit to adapt to using the rod upside down, having spent so much time coarse fishing. We're usually fishing for anything really, bream, wrasse, dogfish, the odd huss or smoothound...


So can anyone recommend either a boat rod that will take a fixed spool reel, or a cheapish rod and multiplier I can wind left handed with
