The 150 will handle it, although not ideal for throwing that heavier stuff.
I personally see the vs150 as a great all around NJ reel for the fishing we normally do here; I have 3 all loaded up with 30# braid as I don't do much fishing around rocks/crowds.
I've even used my 150 to jig 20-50# yellowfin tuna.
If you plan to throw big plugs a majority of the time I would get a bigger 10-11' rod and a VS200 or VS250 with 50# braid (easier on fingers).
My biggest complaint about the 150 is the slow retrieve rate because of the smaller spool.
If your around Keyport on the weekends and want to test cast one of mine on the weekend PM me your cell #
