Finesse Baitcaster

Recommended Posts

I have a Daiwa Sol that I use line down to 6# diameter, and baits down to about 1/4 oz.  The reel is important, but so is the rod you choose.  Makes no sense to put a light reel and line on a MH rod and expect it to throw a light bait.

I been using spinning gear for little T/R  French fry worms, little 4" worms, just figured I asked about a little baitcaster. There's one of these BPS reels on E-Bay for $24.00

Not used the ProLite personally but have heard some descent things.  BPS also makes a smaller size Extreme for "Finesse" situations

Save some money and get the Extreme ETX05.  Same reel basically, different color.

Chronarch MG's are on sale most places right now and are very light/cast light baits well.  Hang one on a Loomis 820 rod and you got a top shelf outfit.  I know this is not really in the price range you were talking about but was worth a mention.  big

Shimano Curado 100 is a great baitcaster for finesse fishing.

Shimano Curado 100 is a great baitcaster for finesse fishing.

I assume Shimano reels are like anything else, you get what you pay for, I have 1 Scorpion 1000 I love this reel, 2 Citica 200 that are OK, had a green Curado 5:1 ratio I used for crankbaits hated that reel, also had a Callisto CSO-100 that I did not like. I'm a Quantum guy, I have 2 Tour PT's, 2 Quantum 7.0:1 Burners, 2 Accurist PT's and 1 Energy PT. I love all the Quantum's, cast great, reel Smooth, but these are all top dollars reels. The only top dollar Shimano is the Scorpion and I do love that one, had a couple of the new Curado E's in my hand and they look and feel great. I'll probably just stick with my spinning gear for all my little stuff.

Thanks
