Bass fishing is a wonderful hobby. There really isn't much better that an afternoon on a boat with friends and family fishing for bass. Summer days can easily be spent reeling in large bass on a local lake. Bass fishing can not only allow for great leisure time, but also the possibility of landing trophy sized fish.

Large mouth bass can easily exceed 10 pounds in many locations throughout the south. Small mouth bass make up for their smaller size with their strength and fighting ability. Striped bass can be a different challenge altogether, since they like to stay in deep cool waters, often growing in excess of 10 pounds. When fishing for bass, it is important to have the right fishing gear.

No piece of fishing equipment is more important than your fishing reel. The fishing reel is your life line to the possible trophy fish on the other end, and they allow you not only to cast to them and hook them, but reel them in. It is important choose the right reel to get the job done.

The best fishing reels for bass fishing will allow you to fish different waters for different species of bass. Some baitrunner reels are one option for bass fishing reels. These open faced and free spooled reels not only allow you to visually inspect your line frequently, but offer multiple forms of drag. The first drag is a normal rear drag system. The second is allows the fish to make a clean run without the danger of the line snapping or the fish pulling your rod and reel into the water. Both of these drag systems are important when fishing for bass, and baitrunner reels offer them.

Another great bass fishing reel is a baitcasting setup. Baitcasting reels are a little tricky to maneuver, but the new models and technology employed in developing them now removes some of the headaches with casting from a baitcasting reel. Many professional bass fishermen utilize baitcasting reels because they are fast. They also offer incredible feel when setting a hook. There are also different drag settings that allow you to wear a large bass down quickly. If you are not a fan of open faced spinning reels, baitcasting reels are another great option when it comes to choosing a reel to use when pursuing trophy bass fishing.

There are many different types of the best fishing reels for bass fishing on the market. Choose a setup that will give you flexibility while on the water. Good luck!
