I own one reel. Its a Penn 750 ssm. It holds a crap load of line because I used to fish beaches where I could let the fish run till it got tired.
I was wondering, how far will a fish really run if Im fishing shorebound for salmon? I obviously want to horse the fish in so that I dont annoy the people around me, so would a smaller reel work?
Basically what I would like to know is, if I had one reel for Kings, sokeyes and silvers, how many yards should my reel hold? And what lb test?
Im thinking of just getting the smaller version of the Penn ssm series.
