    Reel in saltwater for 3 weeks

    I took my son on a rental boat at Capitola, and he caught a fishing pole and penn reel.

    There is some corrosion on the inside of the Penn Fierce II reel. This is his project to clean the reel and put back together.

    I'll soak the gear in hexane to remove grease and have him re-grease.

    The bearing are in a race and seem sealed. Should I put the bearing race into hexane to remove any oils and re-oil?

    The fishing was very good for the boys. They caught two ling cod and twenty rockfish.
