light tackle rod and reel setup

Recommended Posts

I was wondering what gear ratio you suggested for throwing light tackle( 1/16 to about 3/16)?

I also wondering what size rod you would use for topwater light tackle?

and underwater light tackle?

I see this question a lot. Why go to a baitcaster when you're talking <1/4 oz.? No logical reason to do so. Keep your baitcasters for 3/8+ oz. and use a quality spinning rig for less than that. You'll be a lot better off.

I 've got several reels capable of casting 1/16 th oz without much trouble and for what I 've seen the gear ratio doesn 't play any part in the capability of the reel to cast light tackle.

Now which reels I suggest you look into:

Chronarch 50/51 Mg

Curado 100/101 D

Sol

Any of those will cast light tackle, but of course, the rod and line also has a lot to play in the equation.
