I am looking for a decent rod/reel combo for a decent price. I want to use it on the coast for bait casting and also on the occasional party boat trip to toss swimbaits and such, any good reccomdations would be great

Abu c3 5xxx series is a solid all around reel. It has a 5.3:1 ratio so it can winch. The spool is larger then a low pro, so you get a decent line retrieve rate with the winching. Easy to service and parts are cheap. It has three bearings, but you can always upgrade later. Holds about 175-200yrd of 15lb mono. You can find em on the auction site for about $50. New about $100.

I would mate it with 8'6" salmon rod. MH 1/4 to 1oz. Shimano clarus is about $100.
