Deep Sea Fishing

PENN Slammer III 9500 Review

With many different types of fish in so many various habitats, fishing can become very specialized. For example, when fishing off of a boat in deeper waters, you will be targeting bigger fish. The larger the fish the stronger and bigger the reel needs to be.

Every kind of sea fishing has a unique reel. We are going to do a series of reviews comparing some of the deep sea fishing reels that we have had the best luck with!

Our next reel under review is the PENN Slammer III 9500. This is the charter captains reel of choice! It really is a great bang for its buck! This reel is made for serious fishing off a boat or shore. Making it a versatile option. What we’re stoked on: PENN’s new IPX6 Sealed System. This keeps water out of the gearbox and drag system. Two places you definitely don’t want saltwater getting into!
