What spinning reel to use for pan fish to saltwater speckeled trout?
I will be going to Texas on a camping/fishing trip.
I was wondering what spinning reel would be good to fish for small pan fish to saltwater speckled trout?
I Have fished charter offshore 5 years , including inshore. I searched for a spinning reel to easily switch from one line size to another, thus multiple spools.
Finding the right size spinning reel was the trick. After much reading I think the Lews Spinning reel with two spools will be the answer, the 400 series looks like the one.
Well first I hope you enjoy your stay in our fine state. There is definitely good fishing all around, both fresh and saltwater.
I personally don't have any experience with Lews reels unfortunately. I did look up the one I thought you were talking about and believe it to be the one in the link above. Looks and sounds like a great reel. The only thing I want to point out that I hope you noticed is that the spare spool is a shallow spool. It is designed for braid so be ware of this and how it may affect your plan if you want to use mono or fluro on that spool.
I included a Daiwa that I came across. I haven't tried this one in particular but Daiwa's in general have been good to me. This one comes with a spare spool that is normal size. Check it out if you like.
Thank you for stopping by and good luck when you come out to Texas. I'm sure you'll have a great time.
