Help Needed Reel For Rock Fishing


Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

ive been using a daiwa bg90 for fishing off rocks but not too long ago got all my gear stolen. i need to get a new reel but im not too sure what to get. All my other reels(smaller) have been Shimano and i cant help but look for another Shimano for this application. Any suggestions? Also how are overhead reels for rock fishing?

For the money, you cant beat a BTR 4500 or 6500. Both the same internally just 6500 can hold more line. For something a bit heavier but not much more expensive try the Spheros. THey will hold most fish up, but there have ben some awesome reports of big fish around lately.

Dave what where your thoughts on the BG 90

good reel for what you used it for?

under gunned a little ?

What Species do you target?

As said the Spheros +upgrades is a super reel, but is a little pricey

but if you compare to a BG 90 not that far off $ mark

the BTR reels are good also.
