Penn Squall 15 Reel and Daiwa Sealine Surf Rod this Round

New reel came in today – a Penn Squall 15 Reel. Ordered it to go with the Daiwa Sealine Surf Rod that came in earlier in the week. Did some practice casting using the Tennis Ball Fishing Float this evening with it.

After getting used to the reel, educating the thumb, and making adjustments to the magnetic break, switched to a Launcher Float that we like to use for distance casting especially at Denison Dam’s Tailrace.

Headed to the Lower Pond at Bethany Lakes and fished a Float and Jig Rig but instead of a Jig went with a Clouser Minnow.

Easily cast over 100 yards if not more! Suspect the distance will increase with more practice and a heavier weight – Launcher Float used was the 1-7/8 oz model.

Was able to cast to other side of the pond and fish a large area from one place. Even better, caught a Bass during this practice session!

Really liking this reel!
