Anyone here do pier fishing? I happen to live near a great fishing spot but haven't really been that interested to take up the hobby...but I went with a friend on the weekend and found it to be quite fun...and a nice activity to do with my son. So...I am thinking to invest in some gear and would appreciate any advice before I start buying. I am located in Japan so Japanese brands would be best. Main questions are: Good rod weight and length? Type of reel: spinning, baitcaster, etc?
