COLUMBIA, S.C. (March 14, 2011) - Get Lit, owned by Miami angler Kit Toomey and Captained by Quinton Dieterle, claimed their third win of the season at the Captain Kevin Memorial Tournament (K-Rock Tournament) this past week, which took place out of Miami, Fla.
"This is a great win for us," said Dieterle. "Get Lit is off to a hot start in 2011, and we look to continue the success during the next event. We really trust our gear on the tournament trail. We are strong team with the Stren line and PENN International reels, and they continue to prove their worth each trip out."
Using 20-pound Stren Stamina Hi-Vis Gold line, spooled on PENN Custom International 16VS reels, Captain Quinton Dieterle, Peter Miller, and the team Get Lit won the event by catching a total of 50 sailfish and one blue marlin during the two-day tournament. For the win, Get Lit picked up $37,902.
Braided line ready, the Penn International series gives the saltwater angler Dura-Drag washer that virtually eliminate hesitation, even under the strain that braided lines put on a reel. Four ball bearings give the angler a smooth performance in saltwater. Penn International Reels are available in four sizes – 16VSX, 30VSX, 50VSX and 130 VSX – to accommodate any saltwater fish.
"The Penn 16VS reels and Stren Stamina are high performance gear used by everyone," said Mike Rice, Penn Sr. Marketing Manager. "The International series of Penn reels have the best cranking power and offer unmatched performance while fishing in pressure situations. Get Lit earned this victory with hard work and superior equipment."
Stren Stamina offers serious saltwater anglers the power and abrasion resistance needed to last through any fight. Whether you are targeting stripers in New England or sailfish in Miami – Stamina stands up to any challenge. Available in 10 – 100-pound test, Stamina is available in clear coral and Hi-Vis Gold.
