Hi Larry:
Looking for recommendations for a good spinning reel for tarpon fishing? I will be fishing off the beach and the tarpon are up to around 80lbs.

Thank you

Penn, Diawa, Quantum and Shimano all produce good spinning reels suitable for tarpon. I would not suggest purchasing their low end or necessarily the very top high end models either. Depending on your budget i'd buy the best you can afford and make sure the size is sufficient to hold the amount of line you will need.
