Expert Advice

For fishing on open saltwater, baitcasting reels are an ideal option. Baitcasting reels are built with one-piece designs that lessen the corrosive effects of saltwater. These reels boast a greater line capacity for deep water fishing.

Choose a saltwater spinning reel with a skirted spool. This feature increases line capacity and reduces tangles, allowing for a longer cast. This also protects the inside of the reel from corrosive saltwater.

Conventional reels are perfect for experienced anglers who equip their line with a bait or a lure to attract a certain fish. The conventional reel uses the weight of the bait or lure to pull the line from the reel.
