Whilst many reels on the market can be very expensive even the most affordable reels available today can, with regular maintenance and cleaning, provide years of trouble free fishing.You can pay around $1000 for the reel, but you may also buy a reel for $30 - $50. Considering that, it is better if you invest more than $50 for the reel to get quite decent one. You need to know that some of the reels can be used for salt water and some of the reels for fresh water fishing, and you need to plan ahead your fishing journey and type of fish you want to catch. All of this have a significant bearing on the type of fishing reel you will use. Shimano has widest variety of fishing reels for any fishing conditions.
Bait casting reel is comparatively the most difficult to cast with. But the best part is, this reel is available in widest variety of sizes and can handle a lot of abuse day in and day out. You can choose from the models for light-weight use and bigger models for catching huge fish such as Marlin. Bait casting reel is preferred by anglers who need fishing reels that carry the ability to handle heavy line, lures and fish. The control feature is perfect with this reel and you can cast with your thumb, pinpoint accuracy is possible. This accuracy cant be compared with any kind of reels.
Spinning reels, whether freshwater or saltwater spinning reels, share one thing in common that differs from conventional fishing reels. When casting a spinning fishing reel, the fishing line is cast off the reel spool in a circular unraveling, around a stationary spool. Casting reels on the other hand unravel with a straighter motion, with the spool of the reel in freespool, where the spool of the reel spins as the line comes off. This free-spinning motion of the conventional casting reel spool often leads to messy line tangles if the spool is not controlled with the appropriate thumb pressure. The tangle free casting is what probably makes spinning fishing reels the most popular type of fishing reel.
Spinning reels, on the other hand, can handle freshwater lunker bass fishing, big-game saltwater jigging, as well as freshwater and saltwater tournament style fishing. Spinning reels should hang below the spinning rod, with the handle of the reel on the left side of the reel for right-handed fishermen. Spinning fishing reels have an open spool, with the fishing line thread through a bail, which is designed to hold the line. To cast, the angler must open the bail, grab the fishing line with a finger, cast, and then either manually close the bail or turn the handle a half revolution to automatically close the bail. Please, when casting a spinning reel, DO NOT FORGET to open the bail. I have seen many expensive lures go flying into the deep sea with the familiar pop or snap of the fishing line because the angler forgot this critical step in casting these reels.
