Baitcaster Reels FAQ's

What is a baitcaster reel?

Baitcaster reels are a fishing reel style defined by sitting atop your fishing rod, instead of underneath as a traditional spinning reel would. Adding in certain technology and a very specific low-profile design, the Baitcaster Reel can offer even the novice angler a much more precise cast with pinpoint accuracy, as well as extreme sensitivity and lure control. Growing in popularity within the Fishing Community, the Baitcaster Reel takes a little bit of time to master, but with Major Brands such as Shimano, Daiwa, Penn, 13 Fishing and Abu Garcia innovating the space consistently, there is definitely a product to suit every angler in every corner of the country.

Bait caster vs spinning reel: why use a baitcaster reel instead of a spinning reel?

Baitcaster reels have some distinct advantages over a spinning reel that may help to improve your fishing experience. With certain technology designed to increase accuracy and control during casting, you can reach tighter areas with a Baitcaster reel, as well as being a lot more versatile to handling a wider range of lures and operating both as a finesse or a power outfit. This increased power and ability to apply more pressure is beneficial in chasing larger Australian species such as Barramundi or Murray Cod and is a reason so many anglers are switching from the traditional Spinning reel to a Baitcaster outfit.

What fishing gear do you need for your baitcaster reel?

Once you've made your choice on a Baitcaster reel, there are a few essentials, and some optional extras that will really enhance your experience out on the water.

  • Baitcaster Rods: Specifically designed to fit with Baitcaster reels, these rods will come in different lengths and weights to focus on whichever species you're trying to catch.
  • Fishing Line: Both braid line and monofilament (mono) line are suitable for Baitcaster reels, however both have unique advantages depending on your situation. Mono is ideal for beginners, being less prone to tangles. Braid on the other hand is strong, and thinner which is ideal for casting and more responsive for increased sensitivity.
  • Fishing Lures: The variety of lures available at Anaconda will suit any of your days out fishing, suitable for any fish species found in the Australian water. Whether you're chasing flathead with a soft plastic lure, searching the sea with a hard body lure for Barramundi or Bream or going after some freshwater giants like Murray Cod, pairing the right lure to your Baitcaster setup will be essential.

What brands of baitcaster reel do we recommend?

With the whole fishing industry seeing major technological advancements and consistently innovating their ranges, it's easy to see why the Baitcaster market is so hotly contested by the major brands, and therefore why the Aussie angler has an abundant choice right at their fingertips. As always, the likes of Shimano and Daiwa continue to lead the way, with features previously impossible now becoming standard and enhancing the fishing experience, but with brands such as PENN, Abu Garcia and 13 Fishing continuing to revolutionise their own ranges the challenge to keep up is well underway.
