Went to Shelby Farms to fish while my wife ran a race. Tied on a crankbait and cast...only to watch the cranbait sail to the middle of the lake, leaving me with this. The urge to throw the reel in the lake was pretty strong, but I overcame it. Now I remember why I don't use baitcasters that often.

I have 4 spinning reels and 2 baitcasting reels. One is rigged for trout, one is for bass/trout, and the other two are rigged for bass. One baitcaster actually has dust on it. My spinning reels don't.

Get a good one and you will love it. You don't buy a 22 to shoot elk with.

I used to hate them but once I learned how to use them well that's about all I use. Shimano vs a cheaper one is a world of difference for sure

My daddy wouldn't take me fishing when I was a kid until I could throw a baitcaster.....cut my teeth on a Garcia 5500. Its all I use now

John, the first problem is that the cranking handle is on bassakwards.....Best thing you can do with it is break it off at a comfortable heighth and bring it next time you come to the "hills" scouting.

With a baitcaster...quality means alot. For sure, stay away from plastic spools.
