    Re: Baitcasting setup?

    I'm trying out the red this season after always using the green. The only difference I can see so far is that it's easier for me to see the line. I use the yellow on my big saltwater jigging reel. It's great to be able to see your line clearly when fishing with a bunch of other people (line tangles) and since I'm not casting I can use a pretty stout knot to attach a floro leader without worrying about it casting through the guides nicely. I do rub a black marker on the last few feet just in case.

    Re: Baitcasting setup?

    I would just focus on the reel. I always avoid the plastic ones. I got this ABU Garcia 5500C3 Ambassadeur Cast Reel. Love to cast it! I use an ABU Garcia rod to usually an 8ft. This is a great reel for casting large bass lures: spinners, swim baits, etc. and you can even put 30 lb line on it and use it in salt.

    I own all three sizes of that reel and love them. Well, I have the 5000 C3 but the C4 in the 4000 and 6000. Only difference is the thumb bar on the C4 series. Freshwater, saltwater, they work for everything.
