Salt Water Bait Casting Reels


Salt Water Bait Casting Reels

Reels for salt-water fishing are made similar to bait casting reels, but are shorter in proportion to their diameter and are much larger. A reel for surf fishing should hold two hundred yards of line, or more. The best are made of German silver and rubber and have a "throw-off" to make them free-spool, for casting. The reel should be equipped with a leather brake, which is a piece of leather attached to one of the pillars and is pressed against the line on the spool to check the rush of a fish.

The greatest objection to a leather brake is that it wears the line rapidly. What is better is the handle drag, which is a balance handle so made that it acts as a brake, and is fitted to the reel in place of the regular handle. The center of the handle consists of a large disc holding six screws around the edge. By turning these screws any degree of drag may be obtained. In using them the angler does not let go of the handle but holds it stationary and the fish must draw out the line against the tension for which the drag is adjusted. The handle remains stationary, but when the fish gets tired and slacks the line the handle may be turned and the slack reeled in. It prevents breaking of rod tips and lines and the loss of fish.

One firm, a large manufacturer of salt-water reels, fit their tarpon and tuna reels with an adjustable drag of their own which holds against the fish continually, when it runs, at the tension to which it was adjusted. The drag does not alter the appearance of the reel and the handle does not revolve when the line is drawn out.

Reels for tarpon and tuna fishing are of the largest size, some of them being four and a half inches in diameter and holding 600 yards of line.
