Penn torque 200 star drag
I basically only fish the western Long Island sound. Have an 18ft center console, will probably never go offshore fishing. I have a chance to buya penn torque 200 star drag/ versa drag international for $249 at tackle direct. The biggest fish I target are bass & blues. The reel weighs 27 oz. Is it just overkill? I have an empty tiger stick medium 7 ft conventional rod to put it on. Is it worth it? I also fish for porgies, sea bass, blackfish, but with much lighter tackle. Deepest waters would be 60 to 80 feet. I've been trying to diverse from all spinning tackle and bait runners. Is the penn reel overkill and am I just attracted to the great discount and the looks of the reel. Someone talk some sense into me please. Also would it be good for trolling deep diving lures?
