Firstly you a governed by the $$$$, go for a 2500 series be it a Daiwa, Shimano etc, then a Shimano Rack Raider style of rod, plenty to choose from, all the brands make them, then some 4-8lb braid, some 4-8lb flurocarbon leader. These little reels usually come with 2 spools so you can put different weights of line on. Then you need a few different weighted jig heads,(only light though 3, 5,7 grams) and go knock yourself out at the soft plastic section, only about 10,000 to choose from I pesonally like the Berkly range. Hope this helps a bit. Your local pro tackle shop will help you out as well...

Hey mate,

Look as a entry level combo to start with thats not excessively expensive, bang for your bucks too i would consider a Daiwa regal 2500, they have everything a nice reel should and you get pretty good value reel around the $100 mark daiwa offer a 12 month warranty with this aluminium reel and its got all the daiwa features.

Rod wise i would be looking at a shimano catana 6-7ft 1 piece these retail for around the $70 mark

Dont go splurging on Daiwa Sensor braid or anything for your first plastic combo, i would consider the old fireline 4lb at around $30 for 120m it ample for your type of estuary fishing.

Otherwise go see Rebecca & Tony at Fishfinder Bait & Tackle


ALL UP = $200

Hope this helps
