Yellowfin chunking reel recommendations

1297 Views 6 Replies 6 Participants Last post by  mjr2
I am interested in getting Four reels for yellowfin tuna chunking and occasional light trolling. Fishing out of ocean City MD. These will be used as weekend warrior reels not commercial and trying to do this on a budget. Can anyone please recommend a reel that will be the best bang for the buck and still get the job done. If possible I would also like help with the line set up for the reels. Such as the backing to mono to leader. (Line weight, etc.). Kinda a newbie at this. Thank you in advance for any responses

Can you go wrong with a Penn Senator??? Pretty sure mine are at least 60yrs old. Dad had them as long as I can remember and still work great. Clean and grease them every year and check the drag washers.
