Collection: Baitcasting Reels

Baitcasting Reels

Baitcasting reels are favorites with millions of anglers for good reason. Let’s look at some of the advantages of using baitcasters. Well, for one there is no line twist (tangled lines, or bird’s nests, are another matter, however) during the release of a cast, which makes it a great reel in itself.

With a baitcasting reel, you will also get more power for greater distance casting. They come in light and heavy versions, depending on what you are fishing. This type of reel will give you more control and accuracy in casting but requires a little more skill than spinners.

A baitcasting reel is an outstanding reel for big game fishing because it can handle heavier pound test lines. The one possible negative of using the baitcasting reel is that it does take some time to get used to. Nothing that a little time and practice can’t resolve, though.

I remember learning how to use this reel, and it took me a couple of days to master the accuracy part of the casting. After you get the feel for it, however, you will want to use this reel frequently due to its high casting accuracy. Again, just keep in mind there’s a slight curve in learning how to use a baitcaster.

Baitcasting reels basically fall into 2 sub-categories:

  • Round Baitcasting Reels: This reel will have a larger spool, which makes it ideal for holding more line. Ideal when you want to cast a line as far as you want. There are few things more satisfying in life than a long-distance fishing cast. Also, few things in life are as disheartening as a cast that is cut short due to a shortage of line.
  • Low-Profile Baitcasting Reel: This is an increasingly popular type of baitcasting reel because it is are ergonomic, lightweight and easy to handle. You can catch a wide variety of gamefish with the low-profile reel. As a bonus, it also greatly reduces line twist.
