Looking for suggestions on a cod/ Haddock rod for the party boat. I am willing to invest around $100 or less. I want something sensitive to feel the Haddock bite and something relatively fast so I want be reeling in for half an hour.

Any suggestions are appreciated and you will be invited to my PI fish fry with plenty of the below like attending :P

Hi
I would spend a little more and get a Penn Senator Combo. I saw one for sale at Sports Authority for about 150.00. I am sure you could find a combo for maybe even less.
They are a great reel for jigging Cod and Haddock. :P

Here are some combos but only one in the range you want.

I picked up a Penn senator 113H at Dick's for $99. and a Shakespeare rod with carboly guides and roller tip for $35.This setup is for wireline trolling but with the right braid and a strait tip it would be perfect for bottom fishing or trolling. with a little digging you might find it even cheaper. The 113h is (as far as I know) the only high speed retrieve in that price that's worth it.
How's my spelling?

Try Boatersworld.com , a Penn 113h with a decent Penn boat rod for a 100 bucks! Shipping is 7.95, still a great deal. I bought 2 last year.

Nice suggestion, I think I will give it a try. I do like the formentioned Penn though.

Can anyone say fake boobies?

It's a little higher than your price range, but if you can swing it go for the Shimano Torium. I have one on an Ugly stick, the reel is unbeleivable. The ugly stick let's you feel the slightest tap, and at 6.2 to 1 the Torium has you in the boat in no time.

And isn't that an inflatable vest she has one?

Thanks for the replies. I love the torium but it seems a bit outside my budget, I think I will either go with a penn 330gti or 113H and a 7' Ugly stick, I am going to wind it all up with Super Braid.

Look out haddock....

And if thats a life vest I think I am drowning. Can anyone say Bronski- pppppp :P bbbbbbbbbbbbttttttttttttttt.
