Marine General is running a sale on the HMG / President Combo for $99.

The rod retails for $99 so it is like getting a free $60 reel.

I got this combo from them last year and it is flat out awesome. It is my go to spinning setup.

It would work great for fishing a causeway or inlet.

These types of rods can be used for pier fishing, but a pier net is then mandatory. If you want to not use a pier net, and instead just deadlift the fish with the rod, then you'll need a durable rod that usually will be fiberglass or fiberglass/graphite composite (like an Ugly Stik). Pure graphite rods like to snap when they bend beyond 90 degrees.

The 7' Medium rod with 30 sized reel is ideal for wading grass flats for inshore species. it could also do light surf fishing like throwing jigs for flounder around the sides of a pier.

For hardcore surf fishing, serious surf fishers like 11' graphite rods with 55 or larger reels. The surf shark guys use casting or trolling reels on shorter rods (often boat rods), but they rarely cast them. They take the hook and kayak it out hundreds of yards.

For a beginner's light surf fishing setup I would recommend going to Walmart and buying a $35 8' Shakespeare Alpha Bigwater combo in a 15-25lbs. line weight power. It will comfortably throw an ounce (and won't crack throwing 2oz.), and is surprisingly sensitive for a fiberglass rod. It is also a wonderful catfish rod. Fish the dinky reel it comes with until you are ready to move up, and then grab an Okuma ABF-40b.

For a beginner's beach fishing setup, I would recommend the $50 10' Alpha Bigwater setup in 15-30lbs. line power. I've thrown 4oz. a lot with it, but it did eventually get some stress cracks. The 12' is a stronger rod, but that's a lot for a beginner. It is still an amazing value to see if you like surf fishing before plunking $250+ dollars on a graphite rod.

This is a really nice combo for any experience level. If you are just starting off, don't be afraid to spend a lot less and just grab an Ugly Stik GX2 combo from Walmart.

The GX2 combo can be had on sale regularly for $30 for a rod and reel. The reel that is included is almost a freebie, and it isn't smooth but it's plenty durable to pull in some larger catfish. The GX2 is indestructible under normal use, and you can even abuse them deadlifting fish on to bridges and piers.

The GX2 combo, while not as refined, is way more versatile. I don't even like my GX2 much now that I have dozens of rods, but there is no arguing that if one rod had to do everything it's one of the better choices.

In all honesty this rod is too short for either of those purposes and the reel is undersized and not salt resistant enough for surf.

If there is no chance the reel will be dunked and the fish you target are <10lbs you could probably manage but certainly not ideal.

Penn Battle combo is better suited for that but this President is super light and smooth so superior for just about any freshwater fishing

to clarify light weight pure graphite rods might snap but I fish pure graphite rods for Tuna all day and never have an issue with them snapping.

Which is fine for a boat rod, but high power solid fiberglass or solid graphite rods are garbage for fishing freshwater and most inshore species. Obviously there are some very limited exceptions for things like goliath grouper or giant trevally, but that discussion is absolutely pointless to a beginner as you undoubtedly realized.

There's a good deal on that in the Okuma Celio for $29.99

https://www.amazon.com/Okuma-Celilo-Graphite-Lightweight-CE-S-662UL-1/dp/B000JUCLCG/ref=sr_1_2?dchil... [amazon.com]

I own the Okuma SST Trout and it is exceptional little rod for walking streams. I picked it up a few years ago for $29.27, but it isn't that cheap anymore.

I've seen this deal a couple times over the past few years. Pretty darn good deal, but I would sure like to have different size choices on reels. I've been going smaller and smaller on reels lately. 30's are bigger than I like using now days.

A lot of times the 30 is just a deeper spool 25 weighing the exact same. This is not however true of these Pflueger President reels.
