I am asking this only because I see it in alot of posts. When people are asking about diffrent rod and reel setups. I see people say if only going short range 3 to 5 days a international 16 is fine but long range trips take a international 20 etc.... I use this as a example because i just seen it. I agree with a 16 being fine local but why not longer range. Fish are being reported local in the 200 to 300 pound class.
