penn 4/0 I have a 4/0. This reel is the best for bottom fishing. Love it. May 29, 2014
Best reels on the market I have owned and fished with Senator reels for 30 years and they are, in my opinion, the best reels made. The 4/0 is great for bottom fishing, the 6/0 (more line capacity) is better for trolling big game. I have caught everything from Vermillion Snapper to Tiger sharks and have never had an issue. Give it a freshwater clean after use and it will last a lifetime. May 29, 2013
Saltwater Supreme I got the opportunity to use this reel on a coastal fisihing trip this weekend. I like the way that it casts and it is a powerful reel. Penn reels are amongst the best reels on the market! June 3, 2012
Awesome Reel The Penn Senator 6/0 is the best reel i ever used. It has helped me land monster grouper, snapper, and triggerfish and sharks its a must buy the reel is well made and has very strong gears it is an awesome must have reel. May 21, 2012

A: 
It won't work and I've never heard of anyone trying. The 60 lb mono won't spool off. Impossible to thumb the spool that way on this kind of reel without a huge snarl mess. This reel is not at all designed for what you are thinking of like some fresh water reels. Just need a good spinning reel. If you want the best there is absolutely no reel that comes close to van staal. There largest will handle anything you could catch off the surf.

put 300yds of 80lb. power pro on it as backing and the rest 60lb mono and yes, it'll do it if they're under 100lbs. if your thinking they will be bigger then get a 9/0 ind do 500 yds. 80lb braid/ topshot 80lb. mono. Although a shimano tld30IIa or avet lx would be among the best choices.

A: 
Yes, the PENN® Special Senator® Reels would work for catching Yellowfin Tuna. The type of fish will handle would depend also on what pound test line you are using. Other reviews list a 6/0 Reel a good option for Shark fishing. Thanks

Only leave the bait clicker on when retrieving if you are filming a TV show LOL. To get to the point, the clicker does add a little resistance but not like you are describing.

Is the drag smooth?

3 years, 6 months ago
Answer this Question

Answers

A: 
The drag is pretty smooth right out of the box. There are other similar reels with smoother drags but they cost a lot more. My advice (if you don't mind opening up the reel) is to buy some drag grease and lube the drag plates if you find the drag not smooth enough for your liking. Also, loosen the drag after each fishing trip before you store the reel.

Is this reel good for king mackerel?

Answers

A: 
This reel will work very well for King Macs when paired with the right rod. The retrieve ratio is a little low for the situations where the king is running at the boat but that isn't a major problem since Kings don't have quite the aggressive head shake of other pelagics.

A: 
if you have the 144h2 or 115 i would say 50 to 80 would be all you would need. the max drag is only 22 pounds so 100lbs would be a lil overkill wouldnt u think

A: 
Rigg filler line spool flat level as reel spool is by using a small wooden rod clamped to a table and slide Filler spool on it ,, or hang piece of heavy guage wire that it will fit through the center hole of the filler spool so that it can free wheel as line is taken off over the top of the spool towards the reel . So the filler spool is rolling simular to the reel spool is with line going out over top of filler spool to going on over the top of the reel spool . The Line must go into empty reel again over the top and tied onto reels center empty spool . So the line leaves filler spool over the top and goes onto reel over the top as you crank the handle . Choose line you want and use this method . Crank handle of reel with right or left handle depending on model . with other hand use a certain tention on line before it goes onto reel spool so as to not load the line to loose on the reel Do this from start to finish . Load line on spool to 1/8th to 1/4 from the top of spool sidewall . Now your ready to fish .

A: 
You need a buddy to hold your new line with a pencil or rod,, make sure the line coming off is coming of towards you, so you dont get twists,,, and apply a little presure to line so it reels on snug and not to loose,, you will need to tie your line to the reel spool first, i always use a uni knot for this,,,,if your putting braid on,,,tie some mono to braid first using the uni knot technique then tie the mono end to reel spool,,,it will stop the brsid from slipping on spool.
