I used to own a boat, sold it bought camper.  Would like to get back into the shore / pier fishing again.  Would like some suggestion of beach and pier fishing poles for steelhead and salmon.  Not look to drop a ton of money.  I know that Northwood in Linwood michigan has good poles and feels.  Any suggestion would be helpful. Also medium weight or should I go to a medium light or medium heavy?   Thank you guys for any info...  PAUL

OKuma has a decent rod that would work. I think it comes in ten foot for length. These would be good for fishing bait like spawn/alewife. Fenwick makes an affordable spinning rod that would be good for casting baits with. OKuma connoisseur or fenwick hmx. Shimano clarus is a good one too but they are around $100

Go with a medium lite..  the medium and medium heavy are to stiff in back bone requiring more Weight and heavier leads when you want lighter leads for line shy fish..

 i use 6 and 8 pound  for steel and 10 or  12  pound for salmon and will run 12 #mono main line for steel and 30#braid main line for salmon .. I would get a reel that smooth like a shimano sedona c5000 same as I use for salmon and steel head. That reel has enough capacity for large running fish..   

Dont for get you need a seat and a  peir cart...  and if you have been ice fishing I would leave the hub shanty out and heater to sit in while fishing for browns and steel this spring..
