Canyon Tuna Fishing – NJ – Need gear advice!?

I’m going to my first canyon tuna fishing trip (for Yellowfin, Longfin, Bigeye Tuna, Swordfish, and Mahi) in NJ. I prefer to buy my own gear however found some sets to be in the $1000 range. The Skipper says 80 lb class tackle is needed. So I went on eBay and found this rod (http://cgi.ebay.com/Har-Lee-Stand-Up-Big-Game-Tuna-Fishing-Rod-50-100lb-New_W0QQitemZ350098825231QQcmdZViewItem?hash=item350098825231&_trkparms=72%3A1163%7C39%3A1%7C66%3A2%7C65%3A12%7C240%3A1318&_trksid=p3286.c0.m14) and this reel (http://cgi.ebay.com/Shimano-TLD-2-Speed-50L-R-SA-Big-Game-Fishing-Reel-New_W0QQitemZ290261051959QQihZ019QQcategoryZ36162QQtcZphotoQQcmdZViewItemQQ_trksidZp1742.m153.l1262).

This it’s a good choice if I throw on some 50 to 80 lb test? Thanks in advance!

The rod lower medium and the reel is upper poor.You will die from such slow reel when a big fish over 40 lb hooked up.Try anything/brands for rods within 130 to 180 or just say under 200.Reels shoulb be within 150 to 220.Go to local tackle to review their point of view.gd luck.
