What are some good fishing poles and equipment for a beginning saltwater fisher?

Ive been on a couple of fishing trips and just fell in love with fishing. Im tired of having to rent equipment so I decided im going to buy my own. What do you recommend for saltwater fishing, I usually go on the Long Island sound by city island. What pole and reel do you recommend? What other equipment do you recommend? Nothing to expensive please. Thank you

  1. Well, what do you consider expensive? Why?

    Typically, an “OK” combo, (Spinning), will run you around $120. A “good” combo will run around $200.
