think the gear ratio is too high for 80. Check the inches per crank should be around 40"inches any more and you will not have power for a heavy fish
7ft rod or 6 1/2 is more comfortable when yo-yo fishing. A Baja special penn would be a nice reel

Penn 40LDN. Built like a tank
But what will happen to the sea Lions? They will not survive on their own. No fisherman to feed them.
Penn 40LDN 2 Speed. Best Bang for your dollar. I like it better for yo-yo than my Talica-12. $100.oo less. Wish I had bought it first. Good Luck
Penn 40NLD2 speed is the perfect reel for Guadalupe Tuna
Hi I'm confused. Box says 730yds of 80lb but only470yds of 100lb. Is that correct ? I think I could get alot more. Thanks for helping. Love the reel
I object to don't be a Dick.
A better reel would be a Trinidad 20a star drag. Star drag cast much better. For 50lb line and under. Good luck
Calstar Gg270H 8ft PERFECT
Better learn to set your drag on your reels. It really should not happen.
Get a shorter rod, the long ones will kick your butt.
CalstarGG270H with a Diawa BG35 reel. Kick some booty

I was using a 1x3SS fishing 80lb it seemed a little soft I think the 2x4 might be the tcket. Thanks confirms my thoughts.
Thats what I want exactly a Rail rod.
Calstar 6465H or 700XH you can do some pullin
What blank would you guys recommend. #30lb drag setting ?
Hey thanks for the input Vegasandre. Will be going on the shogun.

Calstar 800XH is my 40-50 jig or big bait.
What do you have? Can spend $300.00 I live in San Diego. email [email protected] Thanks Richard
Great pictures and a fine detailed report. Good Job on catching and reporting.
RIP my fellow angler.
I heard the pens were off limits to fish.
For 50 I like a Calstar 700XH a little easier on the angler .Avet jx raptor or talica 12 for a 50lb reel or a penn baja special.

Baja special and senator the same but different?
Will this work for wahoo? Or do you lose torque on turning the handle when you make contact. A Narrow 40LDHS reel sorry about that
I think scissors works the best. It cuts the blood right out
small boat no fan or a/c in bunk room HOT. Boat rolls pretty good in sloppy seas. Great Capt and crew. Food ummm well bring a lunch.
