Baitcast Reel setups for specific baits. HELP!

Recommended Posts

I want to set up 5 of my baitcast rod/reels to be technique specific. I am having a hard time deciding which reels I should use for these baits: Texas rigs, jigs, whopper plopers, buzz baits, poppers, spinner baits, chatter baits, small/medium sized swimbaits, crankbaits, jerkbaits, and lipless crankbaits. 

The following reels I have are:

shimano curado k 7.4.1

shimano casitas    7.2.1

shimano curado k 6.2.1

shimano curado I 6.3.1

Old shimano citica bantam guessing its around a 5.1 speed (23 Inches per turn)  

Which reels should I pair up with these specific baits?

I’d use the 7.2 and 7.4 for jigs and Texas rigs. The 5.1 for crankbaits and the 6.2 and 6.3 for everything else.
