Default Penn 209 offshore

Is a Penn Peer 209 big enough for offshore fishing 150ft or so deep? The line capacity is about 400yds of 65lb braid or 350yds of 80.

The problem with these older reels is drag (which can be improved to some degree) and gear ratio. It takes a long time to check your bait when you're hauling in 150 feet at a 3.75:1 ratio. Can it be done...absolutely!

Didn't realize they were that slow, got any decent priced alternatives Joe. I just want to have one of my own to take out on other peoples boats.

By the way, that power handle you put on my spheros really helped with my big wahoo Saturday. He kept running out and then back at me and I was able to keep up with him.
