Finding fishing reels and kayaks can be challenging if you are not sure where to start. You can read a million baitcasting reel reviews and still not be able to find what you are looking for. Take the time to perform extensive internet searches before you make your decision on kayaks and fishing reels.
Baitcasting reels are an important tool for anglers who want to be able to effectively fish larger lures and techniques where light line spinning reels simply don’t cut it. A good baitcasting combo gives you a high degree of control of your lure, allowing pinpoint lure placements, and the power to pull big fish out of cover and deep water.
This guide will help you understand how to choose the best baitcasting reel for the money, one that helps you fish your favorite techniques as efficiently as possible, as well as coming in under your budget. For those new to baitcasters, we’ll cover the most important specifications to look for so that you make the right choice for your own personal best baitcasting reel.
The Shimano Curado reels are known as some of the best baitcasting reels of all time. Just take a look in the boat of any fisherman who has been around a while, and chances are you will see a few Curados on his deck. The Curado has built a long reputation of performance, reliability, and durability. Sometimes all it takes is a thorough cleaning and some new bearings to give a 5-year-old Curado 5 more years of service. They are really that tough.
Best Recreational Kayaks
You have probably already read a bunch of different recreational kayak reviews online as well. It can sometimes make the decision even more difficult. One of the great joys of recreational kayaking is being able to take along some of the comforts of home to enjoy during your outing. These might include your favorite beverages, lunch and snacks, some comfortable chairs for those breaks on shore, and of course your dog. If you plan to take your dog kayaking, you’ll either want to get a sit-on-top kayak or a sit-in kayak with an extra-large cockpit to accommodate both of you.
Also, please make sure you get a life jacket for your canine family member. Similarly, if you plan to haul around a full-size cooler to share cold beverages with all of your kayaking friends, a sit-on-top will be your best bet. However, keep in mind that large amounts of heavy cargo will slow you down considerably. Generally, I think it’s bet to distribute cargo relatively evenly throughout your group of paddlers. Regardless, think about what you want to carry with you when deciding what type of kayak to buy.
