So I'm going on a private 36 hr trolling and tuna trip out of freeport at the end of this month. I bought a penn carnage 2 6'6" medium jigging spinning rod, and need to pair it with a reel. I'm thinking the shimano Saragosa 10000. My only concern is it only has a 65lb braid capacity of 270 yards. Would that rod and reel set up be sufficient at pulling in jacks and yellowfin, or should i step up to the 20000 Saragosa for the extra line capacity? The rod is rated at 30 to 80 lb braid if that helps.

Yep, fish are played with the rod, it may snap before you take full advantage of the reel's capabilities.
