Salt Spinning Reel

Salt Spinning Reel
Beginner fishing help?

I just brought a Shakespeare Microspin Spinning Combo as my first fishing rod a reel. I didn’t spend too much because I am first starting. Can this rod/reel be used in salt water? Also, what do I need besides the rod, reel, bait, hooks, floats and a rig? Please let me know the answers to these questions. Thanks!

A microspin combo in the salt! You talk about a fight! I bought one of those a few months ago and fished the hell out of it! Caught around 75 or so fish. Bluegills, sunfish, catfish, bass, etc. But I broke the rod on accident picking it up mid-way through the rod. Snapped in half. I loved that combo but now I just gave the reel to my dad and trashed the rod.
