I used a Penn seaboy for most all my heavier stuff when I was a teen... 1970's. Bottom fishing and trolling in the Ches Bay, Potomac and Rappahanock Rivers in VA. My Dad, being of course, older and wiser, had a Penn Long Beach 60.
I fished it for years and finally wore out the gear that engages the freespool, because I not only fished it, I used my trolling rod to fly kites.
