Casual anglers seeking all-day comfort, lifelong enthusiasts devoted to the best in high strength, lightweight gear, and charter captains who count on a comfortable workhorse reel but wouldn’t dream of sacrificing performance, have long relied on PENN® Fishing Reels. Durability, precision, corrosion resistance in harsh saltwater environments, and reliability — PENN® Saltwater Fishing Reels are the real-word union of high-tech style and engineering elegance you can feel. We’ve done the research and have been tested by the best, and for inshore and offshore saltwater fishing, PENN® Fishing Reels are nothing short of legendary.


One reason for such sea fishing reel excellence? PENN® began manufacturing fishing reels in 1932, and since our first sale, PENN® has been at the forefront of modern reel design and production. Millions of experienced anglers around the world put their faith in PENN® products every day and PENN® Fishing Reels hold 1,400 IGFA world records and a boatload of accolades, including American Sportfishing Association’s Saltwater Reel of the Year.

Today, PENN® Fleet Captain Russell Kleppinger catches and releases over 1,000 tarpon — beasts of the ocean at nearly 200-lbs — in a single season with PENN® Fishing Reels (Check out his recent choice of the Fathom Lever Drag 2 Speed). He relies on our fishing reels because they have earned a reputation for exceptional performance. Anglers who want to put a top-of-the-line fishing reel in their hands know PENN® can be a game changer. That’s true for offshore excursions that push your drag to the limit on the trail of roosterfish off Baja or a monster mahi off the Keys, and inshore cruising as well, whether you’re bottom fishing for Flounder or Halibut or fishing live baits on a quest for Bluefin Tuna, Seabass, Pollack, or Sea Bream.
