The baitcaster reel, or simply "baitcaster", is a specially constructed fishing reel that, in contrast to a spinning reel, mounts atop your fishing rod when in use. The baitcaster reel typically fits easily in the palm of your hand, offering the highest level of power and lure control when fishing.
The casting accuracy that can be achieved when paired with the proper baitcaster rod is amazing when fishing in Australia. The use of your thumb to manage line speed and overall casting distance will improve your casting accuracy when baitcasting.
In both freshwater and saltwater fishing, baitcaster reels are used to catch a wide variety of fish species in Australia, please check our buyers guide for the best baitcaster reel.
