Saltwater spinning reels for salmon fishing are the most popular choice among salmon anglers, both due to the marine environment they were designed for and for their ease of use. It is important that if you are going to use a spinning reel in a saltwater environment that you are sure it is meant for those conditions; let’s take a look at what that means and the different applications of these versatile reels.

Manufacture

Spinning reels that are used in saltwater need to last; a good reel will cost anywhere between $100 and $200, and you don’t want them wearing out in a few years or even less. The salt in ocean marine environments is hard on any type of equipment you use, from your boat engine to your life jacket, and spinning reels are no exception. You will need to find a reel that is made of materials such as stainless steel, brass, graphite, or plastic. Any other materials are highly susceptible to corrosion and will be useless in no time. In the same vein, don’t get reels that combine different metals, as the fusing will inevitably leave cracks, no matter how small, where salt can get in and corrode.

Another strong factor in spinning reels as the ideal salt water salmon fishing reel is the minimization of turning parts that are exposed; there are none. This means a lot less opportunity for salt to penetrate, and a lot less maintenance over all.

Versatility of spinning reels

Spinning reels make a great starter reel for any salmon angler, even the youngest. The easy action means saltwater spinning reels for salmon fishing can be cast with just a flick of the wrist, not the full action that bait casters will take (or fly reels for that matter).

Another great thing about these reels is that the risk of birds nests is eliminated. Birds nest are the bane of any caster, because a lot more time is spent untangling the mess and then trying to get the kinks out of the line than actually fishing.

Saltwater spinning reels for salmon fishing are an ideal part of your gear setup no matter what type of fishing you are planning on for the day. Mooching can get a bit tedious, and if there are salmon rising within a few feet of where you are sitting, a spinning reel will come in handy to vary up the day and to get your line out to exactly where you see the fish. The same is true for drift fishing. Trolling will mean that you have to have a good retrieval and casting technique using a spinning reel to avoid getting the line cut by the bow or worse tangled in the other lines, but it’s a good way to show off your expertise and can be more challenging than using saltwater casting reels for salmon fishing.
