I am new to saltwater fishing this year. I mainly fish inshore around Ono Island. My salt arsenal includes
Abu Garcia Revo Inshore Baitcaster
Penn Fierce 4000 Spinning
Penn Sargus 4000 Spinning
These are perfect for inshore.
I have started trolling off the beach for bigger fish. Right now I am using an older Abu Garcia Ambassaduer with the bait alert and an Ugly Stik Catfish rod.
As far as Penn goes, what kind of rod and reels do I need to target the bigger offshore fish? Spinfisher V 6500 with 300 yards of 50 lb braid? Also what length rod is best to match with a Spinfisher V? Which Penn baitcasters have a bait alert for trolling?
I have a Penn Fierce 6000. I'll have to check what length rod I matched it with but it's and Ugly Stik. I love my PF 6000 but I feel like its an over kill for kings. It has stood up to sharks, Bonita and kings so far without a problem. If you were targeting kings on a boat I would use a PF 5000. But for sails it would be safe for a PF 6000. Ill edit my comment when I get gone from school and give you more details.
