Default Reel To Go for Yellow tail jack?

Hi , I fish in the pacific. My main target are Yellowtail Jacks and Dolphin Fish ( trolling ) . I will do some deep fishing.( not trolling )

What reel do you recomend me? I was thinking about the Penn 112H senator Special. ( 3/0 )


What do you think?

For about the same dough you can get a TLD25 lever drag that is lighter, a more modern piece of technology and will take you into large sail small striped marlin class of fish. $120 is a good price.

The 113 is a good ol timer, but you eill like the lever drag a lot more than a star drag system IMO.

I think a TLD25 is too much , but a TLD 20 seems to be a good idea ... ,

4/0 or better. I use 114h's for yellow tail and like it. 3/0 just doesn't keep the bigger ones out of the rocks.

trolling for dolphin, use a TLD20 or the old stand by Penn 113h,, both will be fine,, i Do it most every weekend during the boating season.. Any good boat rod will do.. You dont need the higher priced Daiwa Saltist , the Daiwa SLD20 is plenty for your Dolphin needs.

the 3/0 sized penn 112h has the same drag stack as the penn 500 jigmaster, so 8 pound of drag and straight 30# mono is usually the best you can do with this reel. anything heavier is pointless, because the reel will not safely deliver more drag without some serious modifications (see the jigmaster rebuild post). anything smaller than 25 mono for sure will be caught in between the inner side plate ring and the spool. any weight of spectra will get caught is well. you are really limited to 8 pounds of drag and straight 30 pound mono. with a stainless steel gear sleeve, a greased set of drag washers, an oversized handle and an accurate frame, you could go with maybe straight 40# mono and 12 pounds of drag if line capacity was not an issue. a shimano tld 15 is a similar sized reel and will fish a similar range.

if you went to a "standard width 4/0" penn 113h or shimano tld 20, you would have an option of straight 40# mono, maybe even straight 50# mono, and drag settings of up to 10 pounds stock. if you wanted 15#'s of drag, you'd need to do a little tweaking.

a "wide width 4/0" penn 113hlw or shimano tld 25 offers the same drag range but more line capacity. you'd have to do some serious tweaking to get the sideplates of these reels to reliably deliver 15 to 18#'s of drag. i'm guessing line capacity is not an issue, so really the 3/0 and standard width 4/0 might be your best bet.

so what kind of drag setting do you need, what line weight do you want to use, and how much line capacity?

Those avet reels look really sweet, light weight , nice drag , nice shape

I think that I will be fishing with a 30 lb line .

I don't get what you say about the drag, in the catalog , it says that they deliver more drag, for example

Shimano TLD 15

Full max Drag ( lb ) 22
Strike Max Drag ( lb ) 15

Kinda confused now , could you help me ?

I don't know how much drag can the saltist provide, I can get the saltist for slightly more than the TLD 15 ( like 30 more bucks )
