Baitcasting Reels give anglers more control over lure and bait placement than other types of reels. They enable you to place lures or baits right up next to structure, within inches of the shoreline, or right in the middle of a feeding frenzy. Unfortunately, baitcasters also have a reputation for being more difficult to use than other types of reels. However, with the proper technique, correct reel settings and state-of-the-art equipment, any angler can learn to use a baitcaster like a pro. Once you get the hang of it you will opt for them every time. Baitcasters also generally have a much larger drag system than an equivelent Spinning Reel.
