Catfishing never too many Bait Casters

Never too many Bait Casters

Never Too Many Bait Casters

My wife says I use too many fishing poles, so many that she can barely get enough fishing space for herself.  Not true.  I leave her plenty of room for her one pole, maybe even two.

I like to set at least 3 baitcasters out, especially when catfishing.  I’ll have one up the river a way, one down river a way, and one all the way across the river if I can hit it. Continue reading Catfishing never too many Bait Casters

Abu Garcia SMAX2 Silver Max Low Profile Baitcast Reel

This is an Abu Garcia reel review or the Abu Garcia Silver Max.

The unique feature of the Abu Garcia SMAX2 Silver Max Low Profile Baitcast Reel is it has a small “switch” that allows you to “flip” your lure while holding down the line release lever which helps to cut down on birds nests. Superb break system. The reel itself is fairly light and fits nicely in the hand. The controls on this reel are very easy to set. Great real for bass fishing. Casting is smooth and great casting distance. The retrieve smooth and fast. Great for for salt and fresh water fishing. Great reel for left handers with a great price. Comparable to the REVO for those on a tighter budget.

Abu Garcia REVO Rocket Low Profile Reel Review

This is a review of Abu Garcia REVO Rocket.

PROS:  This reel is super comfortable and fits in the hand perfectly. It’s extremely fast and works well with even lighter weight lures to heavy weights. Great for buzzbaits and spinners, especially for those smallmouth bass! The reel is lightweight, weighing only 6.75 ounes, and the larger handle allows for faster reeling speed. It doesn’t seem to have a problem with birdnesting, and the magnet and centrifugal brake system are amazing, along with all the other various adjustments one can make.

CONS: Can’t seem to locate a lube port hole like most my other Abu Garcia’s have. Cost is on the higher end.

Specifications:
Gear Ratio: 9.0:1
Spool Capacity (mono): 12lbs/145yds
Inches Per Turn: 37

Don’t beleive my commentary, let’s watch Johnny Jenkins YouTube review of the Abu Garcia Revo:

Mini Recap of Review:

Lightening Fast 9.01 Gear Ratio

Fastest low profile reel on the market
