Just my new reel in to complete my new big fish rig. All I need to do now is get some line on the reel and I'm good to go. I decided that I wanted a rod and reel combo that could handle very large fish such as catfish, salmon, carp, steelhead, pike, and muskie, but also have the ability to handle live bait really well. After careful searching, I decided on the Okuma Avenger ABF50 Baitfeeder reel. At first, I had ordered the ABF65 but it was too large to fit in the rod (Abu Garcia Veritas MH spinning rod, 7') reel holder. So, after sending that one back, the ABF50 came today and fit like a glove.
Pretty sweet setup here! :
Might give it a whirl tomorrow (Saturday). Supposed to go fishing for steelhead, but just in case I'm gonna bring my medium set up as well...my go-to LOL
