Need help with choosing gear.
Sorry If have posted in the wrong section i am only new to this site.
I am lookingat purchasing a penn international trolling reel.
My first question is should I buy either a 50 Vsw or an 80 Vsw
My second question do I need a straight butt or a bent butt
Is a 80 over kill or will a 50 do the job
Should I get rollered or guide and what brand and models are good
My fishing will be mainly trolling for pelegics from Mahi Mahi to marlin. I also like to catch (and release) sharks. Tuna is also on the menu. I live in Perth however I am planning to do more fishing in abrohlis and exmouth.
My budget is about 800 for the reel and 800 for the rod.
What do you suggest?
1989 14ft caper cat with deck and 5hp marina
1990 21 ft natwel with mercury 250 pro xs 2013
