I don't have time to get involved in this right now but but I have one word that will help "Shimano" probably a calcutta 400 or 700. for trolling and a good 7 ft medium action rod rated at 15 to 30 pound test. worst comes to worst, if you can cast a bait caster' it will make a great pike stick on a weed line out of the dingy. shimano calcuttas are expensive intially but they more than make up for it in longevity. I have got them off ebay at good prices before. another good one just for trolling would be a penn Baja special 250 ret. but look around. I have one of these reels that has caught more fish than I can remember and never has been worked on It was built with west coast tuna boats in mind and has been abused above and beyond what any other reel on my charter boat has gone through and is still ticking If My mates can't kill it you don't stand a chance. I don't use my calcuttas at work much but I have my pet combo that I have caught thousands of fish on and only repaired once. a calcutta 400 and a lamiglas willamete special.
I call it the meat stick
Hope this helps

All boats are sinking it's just a matter of how fast.
