After fishing the river last year with Jig-N-Shrimp combo meals and getting "spooled" by giant Bull Redfish in shallow water using "cheapy" Okuma 'Trio 30' Spinning reels. I decided, to get those obtrusive necessary evil's called, NEW spinning reels....UGH!
The Okuma trio 30's have seen better days. Out of 6 of them, only 3 aren't stripped out.
I hate a spinner as you all probably know by now. But, because the general public are NOT avid anglers. I have to tote around the handicap of reels, so they can cast on their own.
(When we aren't float-rig fishing; AKA: letting the current do all the work, while using conventional bait casting reels)
NEW SPINNERS ON THEIR WAY:
4- FIN-NOR LETHAL 40'S
A bit over sized for what you'll be doing with these reels. But you need it. Huge 30 pound braided line capacity, and built rugged, so as usual, they'll take a beating. and when you hook up a 30 pound Redbass in 8 feet of water this fall. You won't strip the handle off.
