I have always fished wal mart types of rod and reels, but now I am trying to step it up a notch, I bought a Penn 360 Slammer reel and just a generic graphite rod from Half Hitch here in Navarre a month or so ago (Thanks Dwayne). It is a great set up for slot reds and other fish around that size, but I wanted to get something a little bigger now that I am targeting big bull reds and small sharks (4ft or so). After losing two jobs this year didn't have a whole lot of money to spend so I just bought a Penn Captiva 6000 along with a Penn Captiva 701 H rod today, again form Half Hitch (Thanks Dwayne). Just wanted to get others oppinions on the captiva line, I know it is bottom of the line Penn, but my logic was it is a step up from Wal Mart. So what do you think of them.
