what’s a good saltwater spinning reel to use for inshore and boat fishing (mahi, cuda, etc)?
was wondering what kind of reel to get. have a 24 ft boat that the rod will be used on and will be considered light tackle for barracuda, dolphin, and other smaller gamefish as well as inshore saltwater fishing for reds, trout, sheepshead, etc. i am having a custom 7 ft rod built to match the reel. thanks!
I have several reels but use my Okuma’s mostly now!
For lighter fish I use my Okuma Inspira 55 spooled with 12lb mono or 20lb braid Okuma Inspira 65’s spooled with 17lb to 20lb mono or 30lb braid! These reels have good capacity for line and the drags have tested time well for me and they wont break the bank account.
