The current World Record by http://penfishingrods.com™ is 23lbs all caught on video – https://youtu.be/w3pGsMfWNVo
This is a crappy Chinese pen fishing rod, however it is still one of the best survival or bug out bag rod I have come across, especially for the price of only $5 on Ebay. Buy the real Pen Fishing Rod to add to your kit and you won’t regret it. If budget is your issue, then buy the cheap one.
