Frequently Asked Questions

What kinds of fishing reels does TackleWest stock?

  • Baitcaster Reels: Baitcaster reels are a smaller style of overhead reel that are typically suited to inshore fishing. These reels often cast much shorter, more accurate distances.

  • Electric Reels: These powerful reels blend performance and value, giving you more success in Australia's oceans. Electric reels are most effective when used against heavier catches as their design helps to minimise the risk of pulling hooks or complete power loss, reeling in your catches faster.

  • Fly Reels: Fly reels are an important piece of equipment when reeling in your catch, as they serve as a place to hold or wind the fly line and backing. The backing fills the spool to allow the fly line to be retrieved faster and provides backup for your fly line if your fish takes off.

  • Overhead reels: Overhead reels are best suited to the offshore boat angler who drops a line or sticks a lure out for a troll. They are extremely easy to use and have ample line capacities required for offshore fishing. However, some overhead reels can be difficult to cast and require some practice to master.

  • Spinning Reels: Spinning reels are extremely versatile and can be used in any situation, from rivers, lakes, off the boat, beach, or rocks, no matter in freshwater or saltwater. These reels are super simple to use and are a great choice for both pro anglers and beginners alike.

What kind of fishing reel is best for fishing?

Most of the time your fishing reel choice (as well as rod type) will depend on the fishing situation and environment you wish to catch in. Both fishing line and rod capacity will influence your reel choices. For example, spinning reels and baitcaster reels can have slow or high-speed gear ratios for the best performance. Smaller fishing rods and reels are ideal for estuary fishing, while larger fishing rods and reels are preferred by surf fishers to get their bait out over the waves and into the action. Most anglers will require a combination of differing fishing rods and reels to suit many different fishing situations and environments. If you're unsure which fishing reel and rod you should combine, our friendly team is glad to help. Visit us in-store today or contact us.
