What will take crab and squid

I’m trying to catch myself a smooth hound and went fishing yesterday and got some peeler crab and squid left. So today I’m going to a place that’s fished pretty poor recently and I’m going to be using the same bait.

Or change to a two hook flapper, but this won’t produce big baits.

so the poll is reel up or down ??

thanks in advance

Daiwa sandstorm

I’m thinking about purchasing a 13FT Sandstorm. A Multiplier version. SSS13M. Does anybody have any experience with this rod ? I was told it fails to achieve in respect to pendulum casting ? I’m seeking a new rod that would work well with a PENN Mag 2 / 515. Tight Lines !
