    When you said under $60 for a large Spinning reel I thought of the Bass Pro Shops CatMaxx Spinning reel, in the larger “CM80” model. This reel holds 290-yards of 25lb monofilament, and around 350-yards of 20lb mono. Plenty enough line.

    Although it was made for BIG freshwater Catfish, it’d be a great Shark reel. You HAVE to make sure you rinse it off after each trip, because it’s a freshwater reel and is going to corrode and rust if you don’t rinse it off because of the harsh saltwater. The reel is $39.99 retail. Here is the link — http://www.basspro.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/Product_10151_-1_10001_74038____SearchResults

    There’s so more “saltwater friendly” choices out there as well. The Offshore Angler Sea Lion Spinning reels are $44.99 and the “SL80” model would be an excellent inexpensive Shark reel. The Daiwa DF100A Giant Spinning reels for $32.99 would also be a good choice, although IMO it’s a little too big for what you’d like. You can still check it out. Here’s the Sea Lion reel — http://www.basspro.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/Product_10151_-1_10001_71821____SearchResults and here is the Daiwa DF100A Giant — http://www.basspro.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/Product_10151_-1_10001_88924_151001002_151000000_151001000_151-1-2

    Another great option, if you’d like to have the “baitrunner” feature on your reel, is the Okuma Avenger Baitfeeder, 65-size.
