Need a new reel.

Like the title says, I need a new salt water reel. I used to have a Shimano Stradic 4000 on a St. Creux rod but the Stradic couldn't handle the salt water corrosion more than a year even with cleaning it regularly....So I got drunk and went out and bought a G. Loomis Greenwater and Shimano Sustain 4000 as my primary set up now...but alas, I still have that sweet St. Creux thats not being used. I have a gift card for $150 at Bass Pro and want to stay under that. Suggestions?

Just looking for something to fish shallows/beaches with. I already have an offshore set up and my current "skinny water" setup, but I think I would like to stick with the whoe bays and beaches idea still...just incase I have some one come out with me that doesn't have a rod or the g/f ever decides to do something fun.

Spinning reel. Never had a penn...heard too many mixed reviews to jump on them. I'm in love with my Sustain, but I don't want to drop the same cash for a back up/spare reel.

Know anything about Quantums? Been hearing good things about them.

I think so far I'm diggin the Quantum Catalyst. I really liked my old Stradic, but I'm not sure I want to trust them again...(from what I understand they used to be made for fresh water--the model I had--and just recently began making them for salt, which explains why mine got so mucked up)

Sucks that we are out of season for much of anything good right now, because when I can't go fishing I end up spending money on gear to get my fix. Gah.

Can't go wrong with pier fishing...unless you manage to snag a Lady Fish which attracts the attention of a dolphin and 2 pelicans...then 5 minutes later, a bird nested line, and dirty looks from tourists, pier fishing has lost its appeal.

So I got the Quantum Catalyst 40 and went out tonight. Caught a decent Trout and a small Cat on my first two casts before I switched back to my main set up. Love the reel, but after using my Gloomis Greenwater for so long my St. Croix rod feels like a cane pole.

Here is a Bass Pro shop tip(from experience):
Want to spend several hundred on fishing - Get a buggy
Want to spend up to a hundred or so - Get a basket
Just going in to get a few items, but don't want to break the bank. -What you can carry in your hands!

I fish freshwater & when I go for one or 2 items. I have learned the hard way.
So now I use the above rule of thumb.

Ha, good philosophy...but trust me, you don't need a cart or a basket to spend hundreds.....all it takes is a shimano stella, lol.

True, when buying reels. It is easy to break the bank. My philosophy is on lures & misc things. The smaller priced items. But they sure add up if you use my three methods of purchase.

With a shopping cart, I have never left Bass pro with less than $200 worth of stuff. Shopping carts are off limits to me! Last shopping experience was Lowrance GPS/fishfinder $659 + other items = $850.
