Fishing Reels

Fishing reels have been around for centuries, but up until the 19th century they were used solely for line storage. In the 19th century improvements were made to make them casting devices as well, and the improvements have continued since then. There are many different kinds and brands of fishing reels out on the market today, knowing which kind of reel best suits your fishing needs is extremely important. The manufacturers are beginning to add a number of improvements to today's reels to better suit braided lines and achieve incredible line retrieves. We sell fishing reels from the top manufacturers out on the market: Daiwa, Shimano, Penn, Okuma, St. Croix, and Van Staal.
Conventional Reels
Conventional Reels are very similar to Baitcasting Reels; the major difference is that conventional reels are generally not designed for casting. They are used mainly for bottom fishing and trolling. These reels are designed to be able to handle big game fish such as tuna, marlin, sailfish, and sharks. Smaller sized models will easily handle smaller bottom fish such as flounder, blackfish, grouper and snapper. Conventional reels are built for line capacity and cranking power.

    Bait Casting Reels
    Baitcasting Reels date back to the mid-1600s, but became more popular in the 1870s. They are mounted above the rod, therefore also know as an overhead reel, and have a bearing supported revolving spool. Most modern day Baitcasting reels are constructed of aluminum, stainless steel, or synthetic composite materials, which are not only lightweight, but extremely durable. Baitcasting reels are known for their cranking power and have become a favorite among tournament anglers in both the freshwater and saltwater fishing industry due to their extreme versatility in being able to cast and retrieve various lure types.
