There are several models of rods and reels to choose from, we urge you to use what is best for you. This list is a basic guideline for what to bring aboard Intrepid.  To forgo the expensive cost of outfitting for a trip, onboard we have Seeker Rods and Avet reels for you to use as loaners. You pay $10.00 for the line fill up. Please contact Intrepid Office in the event you need to use the loaner gear.
