What's up, BD? I've been living out in Texas the last couple of years for work but I'm hoping to get back down to So Cal to do some fishing this summer. Realistically 3/4 to 1.5 day range. I inherited an Avet MXL 5.8:1 and am wondering what size line you guys prefer to fish that reel with. I know it's got a lot of line capacity with braid and the drag is around 14lb max I think. I've got a Saltist 30 2 speed that I'll probably use as my 30lb live bait set up. A Penn International 975cs as a 20lb set up. A Jig stick with a Penn Fathom 25N. If you guys don't mind, I could also use some suggestions on a solid 50-60 pound set up in case there's bigger bluefin around. I know there's a ton of threads on this topic and I've been reading through them. Seems like most people recommend the Talica's. I know you get what you pay for but are there more affordable, quality, options for this application? Thanks in advance for any info!
