Lead Core Reel?

6 posts in this topic

I am looking for a large spool reel that can hold lead core for trolling. Any suggestions? I would like to spool 100 yards of lead core.

Look at the Daiwa Sealine 47SH, Penn 320 GT2, Okuma reels in the 45 series, or Bass Pro Shops Offshore Angler Gold Cup series 4004.

No need for linecounters, just get a levelwind.

Cabelas makes apretty good reel with a built in linecounter. I have the depth master II and like it a lot. I think I spent $130 on the rod and reel combo along with a spool of lead core and mono for leader.

I would highly recommend the Penn 320GT2. It has a faster retrieve than most at 4.3 to 1. You can appreciate it when reeling in 80 yards of lead core. It is what I use. It holds 100 yards of 27 pound test lead core perfectly.

I use the larger Penns yet. The new Shimano Tekota 700 work great too.

      I love these fish! The attitude is always fun and they taste great. The strip of y bones can be cut right out with a little effort.    I know where I'll be early in the morning May 13th with topwaters and swimbaits!

      Grubens did permits the 2016 season. Fortune bay stopped writing BWCA permits the end of the 2015 season. Sally retired and that ended the permits at the bay.  Some day we will be able to buy permits on line and print them.

      The video shown in the link posted above shows most of the fish they're handling going back because they're not ready or too green. The video was from 4/14 so I would bet they are done as that was 1 1/2 weeks ago. Cutfoot was done in less than a week. Cliff will be able to tell you for sure when then finished but I'd guess they were done by the end of last week.
