BAITCASTER Fishing Reels


On the other end of the spectrum, baitcasting reels allow for casting lures like jigs, spinner baits and crankbaits with pinpoint accuracy, but there is a dialled in drag resistance and require a higher skill set to be able to thumb the spool as line flows off. If you can’t find that sweet spot of thumb pressure, you’ll experience a backlash bird’s nest of tangled line.

Generally, you can launch a lure further with a baitcaster, because the line flows directly straight off the spool and not in a circular motion as with a spinning reel.

However, baitcasters do take some time to master and practice is needed to dial one into your comfort zone.

Someone proficient in casting a baitcaster will have mastery over accuracy and distance in the long run after plenty of practice and are preferred when fishing locations that demand such, while a spinning reel can be used in virtually every situation possible.

Bottom line – pick the spinner for inexperienced anglers and for all around usage, employ the baitcaster when focus and precision are needed in a challenging environment such as lily pads or dock pilings.
