Beginner fisher, need help with setup
I live in Brooklyn New York and I want to get into the hobby of fishing. I'm a fast learner but I have no idea what brands of rods/reels/ or any type of gear I should get. I want to get 3 rods and I can budget up $300 on all the gear I would need to have a comfortable fishing experience. The fish I'm targeting is striped bass, blue fish, and flounder. The fishing spots nearby is a pier and a beach. Thank you for your help.

Welcome to BFT! Looks like you want to do some surf fishing as well as off of piers. Unfortunately I am landlocked so all I fish is fresh water. However there are many members who fish salt water and can help. Here is a link to the saltwater boards. Hope this helps.
