Spinning reels for Swimbaits?

Recommended Posts

So i was fishing with a buddy and i was fishing the mattlures baby bass and i had caught a couple decent fish.  I use my revo stx when fishing them and my buddy doesnt have a baitcaster or the rod to handle the lure.  He has a spinningrod that he uses for catfishing and was wondering if he could use that to fish swimbaits.  Is there any negatives to using a spinning reel vs baitcaster?

Fish Chris uses spinning tackle exclusively. That should speak for itself.

If you want to still fish with spinning gear with a lure that size you are going to have to beef up your gear.A 7' mh rod with a fast tip and a reel with a big spool should get the job done. If your fishing with hard swimbaits then I would go with a baitcaster

Spining gear works for me.  These big lures are wearing me out though.  I need a lighter rod.
