Selecting The Right Reels
Bait fishing: A spin or overhead reel is ideal for recreational fishing, but if you are a fishing newbie, then opt for a spin reel because they are easier to use.
Trawling: An overhead reel is the weapon of choice for trawling, because it fits nicely into the rod holders, can be fitted with a gimbal belt and it’s easier to adjust the line.
Casting: A spin reel is easier for beginners and also for lighter lures or sinkers, however casting reels do give you more precision, but they take longer to master.
Bottom fishing & jigging: When you are dropping baits or heavy lures from a boat, it’s easier to opt for overhead reels, however a spin reel can really give you more versatility.
