Matching reel, pole, and line is quite important for these reels. Most are adaptable for left and right hand fishermen. Casting is very simple, and is perhaps the easiest reel for a novice fisherman to learn to cast. One final aspect of these reels is that they are available in differing gear ratios. A 4:1 ratio would mean that one turn of the handle would generate 5 turns of the bail. If you will be fishing lures that need to be retrieved more quickly (buzz bait for example), use a higher gear ratio reel. A bait casting reel works by allowing the weight of the lure or bait to pull line off of a revolving spool. Although the skill necessary to use such a reel was at one time quite challenging, for anglers willing to spend the money, there are now systems on reels that prevent the backlash that plagued novice anglers attempting to master their use.
Spincasting reels differ from normal spinning reels in that the spool of the fishing reel is usually encased. This type of reel is normally cast with a push of a button, which disengages the line. To engage the line, all the angler does is turn the handle a little to re-engage the spool. The limited line capacity, size and overall utility of this type of fishing reel should be restricted to freshwater fishing applications as well as teaching novices the fine art of casting and fishing. Another important note is that a spin casting reel should sit atop the fishing rod and the handle of the reel on the right side of the reel for right-handed anglers.
Spinning reels are the most popular and widely used fishing reels out on the market. They have superior performance and are pretty easy to use. Often times, these types of reels have the capabilities of being able to move the handle to either side of the reel. These reels also hang from the underside of the rod. Spinning fishing reels are normally used with up to a 10 pound test line. Spare spools can also be purchased for accommodating different pound test lines. A person may decide part of the way through a fishing outing, that they want to switch out their line for the purpose of fishing a different species or weight of fish. This is where having an extra spool or two could come into play. Again, the drag is an important factor on these reels. The drag will apply a certain amount of pressure on a hooked fish, and at the same time, it lets out some line during the fight.
Casting Reels: When fished in freshwater, this type of fishing reel is commonly known as a baitcast, baitcaster or baitcasting reel. Some people tend to break up the two words into bait-cast, caster and casting. Whichever your preference is, you are still referring to the same reel. When these types of reels are fished in saltwater, they are typically characterized by function and features. For deep sea fishing, casting reels are known as conventional fishing reels and anglers have created descriptive labels for these such as star-drag, lever-drags, high-speed, jigging, big-game, two-speed & trolling reels. Spinning Reels: There are two types of spinning reels that make up this category of reels, which happens to be the most popular category of reels. There is the enclosed-spool spincast, spincaster or spincasting reel, which should be used for freshwater fishing and teaching kids or novice anglers how to fish.
