Bait caster weights

Recommended Posts

That's a VERY general question and depends greatly on the individual reel, but there are baitcasters out there that can cast 1/16oz. very well - The Daiwa Presso and Daiwa Pixy come to mind 8-)

The reel will illustrate the line test that best fits that reel.

The rod will do the same.

A light bait needs a light line so this will be your key when reviewing the line tests on your rods and reels.

I use light tackle when throwing light baits.  All on a spinning rig.

You will have to experiment to see what works and what doesn't.  :P

I much prefer baitcasters to spining gear but when it gets to less the 1/8 ounce or a little more BCers are just not worth the extra effort. BC rods also are very important. Don't try light lures on MH or H rods and use light line 10 pounds or preferably lighter.
