Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 9 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Solid Penn LC Reel This is a tough reel that holds plenty of line and gets the job done out on the water. I have this paired right now with a 6'6 Medium Heavy Ugly Stik rod that I think matches up real well for my trolling purposes. I like the throwback look of this Penn reel and the line counter has worked very smooth so far. You also cannot argue with the cost. For the guys who had an issue with the star drag on a few other reviews - I think there is a break in period even on the lightest setting. My drag was very tough out of the box for freshwater fishing and did take a few outings to ease up a bit. I can see why some people were frustrated with this because you can get into trouble easily if the drag is not working properly. My thought was that it was probably designed super tough for salt water fishing. Im looking forward to years of use out of this Penn real. September 12, 2013
Rated 1 out of 5 by Terrible Bought two of these Aug 2013. Returned both. Drag would not operate properly. Level wind would not operate on one August 23, 2013
Rated 3 out of 5 by Penn Line Counter reel Not very good for fresh water, the drag does not loosen up enough to release the line while trolling. I've had several fish break off because of this. Also the line tends to get trapped in between the spool and the reel body costing time to untangle. August 8, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Have Penn 309's After using my Penn 309's purchased in 1988 for Lake Superior Fishing until 1991 when I had to sell my lake boat due to a job layoff. I kept 3 down-rigger poles and the Penn reels Last year got back to a bigger boat and back out in the lake fishing again and still using them with a fresh wrap of line. I started using dipsy divers and have the need for line counters now it was a " No brainer" to buy the Penn real in the 209 line counter. I am looking forward to many years of usage from all my Penn Reals. March 9, 2013

A: 
8 to 12 pound test line is common when targeting bluefish in the 1 to 3 pound range, while 20 pound test and matched tackle may be the choice when targeting larger bluefish.

Striper- Typical line is 10-20 pound test monofilament line.
