Baitcasting reels are typically used when anglers are wanting to cast larger baits and fish those larger fish. These fishing reels have a revolving spool and also sit on top of the rod. Most come equipped as either right-handed or left-handed but not both. When using a left-handed reel it eliminates the need to switch hands after casting. Anglers will most often want to use this type when tossing lures weighing more than a 1/4 ounce or when using over a 10 pound test line. Baitcasting reels are available in mostly round or low profile designs. Round reels typically have larger spools and hold more line compared to the low profile reels that are more ergonomic and can be palmed more easily. Low profile reels tend to be the most popular. When tossing those larger baits youll want a reel with a deeper and wider spool which is found more often with the round reels.
A big advantage of spinning reels is that they allow the rod to be held in the anglers dominant hand. Whether you are left or right handed the handle on the modern spinning reel is reversible. Because of this anglers have greatly increased control to the rod itself. Spinning rods are popular for catching pike trout walleye perch eel and zander.
