Baitcaster for a swimbait rod?

Recommended Posts

Much of it depends on personal preference, and the size/weight of the swimbaits you'll be tossing.  Everything from a standard 200 sized reel for smaller swimbaits - paddletails, bbz shad, etc. are fine.  If you're going to be tossing 10" trout type swimbaits on 30lb line, I'd opt for a larger round reel like the Calcutta TE 400.  The curado 300 makes a good mid sized swimbait reel in a LP design.  Good luck!

I chose a Curado 300 for my swimbait rod because I prefer low profile reels. I haven't used it for any huge lures, but it performs well with the mid-size swimbaits.

I use a Quantum Mantra with no problems. Also, a Pflueger President spinning reel.

For baits under 3oz I used to use a Toro, now I use a Revo Inshore. Works great. For bigger stuff,Ii use a Daiwa Luna 300.
