I basically only fish the western Long Island sound. Have an 18ft center console, will probably never go offshore fishing. I have a chance to buya penn torque 200 star drag/ versa drag international for $249 at tackle direct. The biggest fish I target are bass & blues. The reel weighs 27 oz...
Ok y'all, I've got some questions for those of you who have experience with the PENN surfmaster series (or even the squidder or jigmaster series).
I have an old surfmaster 200 that my Pa'pa gave me years ago, it's given me alot good use on my 10' rod for throwing 1-3 oz weights and bait, just...
landed well over 200LBS of fish today got 16 in the boat with the biggest 3 being 19.5LBS 23LBS and 23.5LBS i had one that was only 8lbs the rest were in the teens and yes i do use a scale on all my fish
good luck all :a_goodjob:
I just picked a Penn Surmaster 200 at a fleamarket for ten bucks.. It has seen some use but was well taken care of.
It was matched with a 7' rod. Should the rod be upgraded?
Even better. Is this a good reel?
Thanks to all that reply.
