Casting in pursuit of salmon species can provide one of the greatest thrills to be found in the sport of fishing, and when you are spinning it is important that you have an idea of the appropriate spincast reels for salmon fishing. Most reels with similar features are priced around the same amount, and you can really go as high or as low as you wish depending on the features you want. This article should help you in deciding which features to look for on a reel, and also some basic consideration whether you are fishing salt water or fresh water for these exciting fish.
This is the number one consideration on any spincast reel when you are going out after salmon, whether on a river or in the ocean. Casting (especially from shore) on the ocean means that you have a lot of obstacles to clear: kelp beds on the tideline, rocky shoals, and sheer distance are a few considerations. More line will make sure that you can reach the distance needed to where the salmon are swimming or holding.
In fresh water, having a lot of line capacity will mean that you are ready when a salmon takes the bait and makes a big run. These fish have a lot more strength and fight than other species found in rivers, and you need to be sure that you are not going to run out of line when you are fighting them.
Another consideration when looking for spincast reels for salmon fishing in both salt and freshwater is the size of the drum. A big drum means that you can cast a lot farther with the same amount of effort. You can cast to where you just saw those salmon jumping on their migrating spawn up a river, or on a boat in the ocean you can cast towards a herring ball that just rose to the surface. Either way, you are going to need to be confident that the distance is one you can hit, and a big drum will make this task easier.
Lightweight materials are the order of the day when it comes to spincasting; graphite and co-polymer reels remain among the top choices here. You will also want to take a look at the material that the bearings are made of, and this is particularly important when using spincast reels in the ocean or at river mouths and other estuaries. Salt will corrode the workings of the reel, and materials such as stainless steel and brass will mean that your reel keeps its maximum shelf life.
Keep in mind when you are looking for spincast reels for salmon fishing that you are going after some of the biggest, fightingest fish that can be found on the west coast. Features from brake mechanisms to drag all need to be heavier than they would be for other types of fish. It won???t cut down on the sportsmanship of the pursuit; heavier reels will only give you greater peace of mind. Baitcasting is some of the best fishing out there and is popular among sports-fishers creating diverse challenges as conditions change as opposed to using trolling reels for salmon fishing which are a different dimension to salmon fishing altogether and can be a extremely productive compared to baitcasting.
