We purchased two PENN Warfare combos for a 1,500-mile open ocean voyage taking LOVE KNOT, our 40-foot \"Lucia 40 inch catamaran, from Annapolis, Maryland, to the Horizon Yacht Charters base in the British Virgin Islands. We hoped to catch some fish to pass the time and augment our provisions. Wow, did we! Trolling at 7-8 knots in the Gulf Stream, we caught two 30 to 34-inch mahi's which provided 4 meals of terrific grilled fish plus ceviche. Then, on our last full day of sea, trolling a 6-inch cedar about 60 miles north of St. Thomas, we hooked this 94-inch marlin. After an hour and a half struggle of jumping, skidding and diving, we were able to bring this beautiful fish on board long enough for a photo -- then released her. Pretty darn impressive for a bargain rod and reel spooled with 20-pound line! Thank you PENN for a great product!!
