WHICH REELS ARE RECOMMENDED FOR BAIT FISHING?

Bait fishing is versatile, including spinning reels and overhead reel options at Anaconda. Every angler has their own style and level of skill, so Anaconda provides a wide range of equipment to suit every angling type. If you are beginner, you might feel more comfortable with a spinning reel for bait fishing. On the other hand, if you are more experienced, you might better with an overhead reel. However, the latter does depend on your personal fishing style.

WHICH REELS ARE RECOMMENDED FOR TROLLING?

When you go trolling, the overhead reel is usually the recommended option. The reason for that is the reaction accuracy you have with an overhead reel. If you are fishing for some seriously heavy fishes, the overhead reel allows you to respond to your heavy catch better.

One of the additional advantages to using an overhead reel for trolling is how easy it is to adjust the line. With the overhead reel you can also count on the so-called free spool function, which makes catching heavier and rougher fish a little safer.

WHICH REELS ARE BEST FOR CASTING?

When you go casting, you can choose both spinning and overhead reels. Once again, it can depend on your skill level. If you are relatively new, always choose the easier spinning reel for the better experience.

Naturally, there is one overhead reel that can be particularly useful for casting, more specifically the baitcaster. The baitcaster is a reel that should only be used by more experienced anglers though, as its handling can be more difficult. You can also use this overhead reel for a variety of waters, this goes from rivers and lakes to inshore fishing.

WHICH REELS ARE BEST FOR BOTTOM FISHING?

The reels used for bottom fishing are usually the same ones you will use for jigging. For this type of fishing, overhead reels tend to be best. With an overhead reel, you have more control of the spool, which in turn provides benefit when you hook a fish in this situation. The capacity of an overhead reel tends to be better for deeper waters too.

Even though overhead reels are the recommended choice, there are some modern spinning reels that could provide similar benefits in deeper waters. Of course, there are multiple things to take into consideration here, this includes the strength of the reel, stability, but also overall control you can command over it.
