Fishing Tackle Q & A / Baitcaster Reels
« on: April 01, 2015, 10:46:01 AM »
So I've purchased and tried baitcasters a couple of times over the last 8 years or so. Been using spincasters my entire life. Purchased combos before, not overly exspensive but not the cheapest. Always had problems to the point of discouragement (backlashes) that I traded them or sold them. Do I need to spend descent mony on a good reel to be succesful? Say an Abu Garcia Revo S or better?
Do you think there is an advantage to baitcasters over spincasters for say tournament fishing?

Boating Forum / Ranger RT 178

I'm going to check out the RT 178 next Saturday at Reynold's marine in Lyme, CT. Pretty sure I will be giving them a deposit. Been researching new tin boats for a year now. Has the 60 four stroke and upgraded trolling motor (70). I can hardly wait!

Do you think they are overpriced? Paying for the "Ranger" name? For the $1000 or 2000 more, I think the little extra things are worth it. I like the idea of the foam filled hull.

Gonna try my luck at shad fishing on the CT river tommorrow near Springfield.

Never tried for shad before. Any pointers?

Maybe I'll get lucky and get a striper or 2 as well.

Hopefully some pics to post.
