  • (1888PressRelease) July 16, 2011 - Freeport, New York - Landing exceptionally big fish on an incredibly light line was something anglers would never have expected to do in the past. However, with the right equipment, skill, and careful planning, hooking onto fish that weigh up to ten times the breaking strength of the line is now possible thanks to specialized drag reels such as Shimano Talica, Shimano Trinidad, and Penn Torque. Whether it's halibut, striped bass, tarpon, or tuna, Shimano's range of small drag reels, combined with Power Pro or Power Pro Hollow Ace braided lines have the capacity to handle lunkers. Sea Isle Tackle, one of Freeport's leading tackle and bait outlets, recently added Shimano's new range to their large selection of fishing gear.

    Owner of Sea Isle Tackle, Robert Feuring, is among the first to test these reels to the limit. According to Feuring, the Shimano reels as well as the Penn Torque lived up to expectations, which is why they are among the hottest selling reels today. Feuring says, "These reels, along with Power Pro Hollow Ace braided lines are a deadly combination. The Shimano matches up to its larger lever drag brothers but in a small powerful 2-speed package. All that anglers need to do is fill in the Power Pro and a short Fluorocarbon top shot for the ultimate fishing experience." The new Power Pro hollow core braided lines uses a 16 spectra fiber construction for superior connection strength. The latest Enhanced Body Technology used in its design ensures a greater abrasion resistance and strength to diameter ratio.

    Online shoppers will discover an incredible selection of fishing rods, reels, and lures from the top brands at Sea Isle Tackle's store at The store features an assortment of quality fishing accessories to satisfy the needs of all anglers, regardless of their skill level. Feuring shares some of his tried and tested fishing techniques on the site's blog. The one stop shop for fishing equipment includes a range of accessories from hooks to bobbers and sinkers. When asked to recommend the best combination for anglers Feuring said, "Go with any of the Shimanos. For the ultimate experience the Shimano Talica - TAC25II is among the best you can get. Of course, the Penn Torque is also among the top saltwater reels. What anglers must pay attention to is the reel, which should hold enough line to handle the target species. Some anglers tend to overdo it and use endless yards of reel in the hopes that it will prevent big fish from stripping them. The key is to fish close to the boat so that you need a line just enough to prevent being spooled. Keep it small and light so that it is comfortable to hold and manage during a fight."
