I was trolling a deep diving husky jerk at chatty and bouncing it off the bottom. I caught a complete setup with an eight inch savage gear 3d trout still tied on it. The reel was a PENN jigmaster #501 and the rod is a south Bend black beauty. Nothing too fancy but cool to snag nonetheless. It also had leadcore line on it with a mono leader. The leader looked like it was about six pound test which is hilarious. It was in tough shape and the handle would barely turn but I was stoked because I grew up using penns on the ocean and they’re legendary reels. Decided to clean her up a bit. Took it apart and scrubbed most of the reel. Also did a vinegar bath. She’s looking much better and working good. Dunno what I could use it for except trolling but it’s a cool find. Gonna work on cleaning up the rod next and see what I can make of it.
