Hey guys getting my gear ready for the thaw out and need some help. I am looking for a quality (mid priced) spinning reel with a bait clicker. Any recommendations?

Hmmm... not sure I've ever come across a spinning reel with a bait clicker. :smiley_chinrub: Of course I've never really needed a bait clicker for the type of fishing that I do, though. Our trolling combos have a bait clicker on them, but those are baitcasters... not spinning reels.

Yeah I have a Abu Garcia 6500 C3 (baitcaster) with a clicker. I use them for surf fishing and catfishing. I really don't need a ton of line. I want something along the same size of the large Shimano Saharra. I think I might have found a good one. It is made by Okuma. I have one of there spinning reels on my river rig and I love it.

Open to other suggestions.

shimano has the biggest selection of spiinning reels with bait runners

salt striker is cheapest money wise but i have used them and like them , but im a baitcaster man , and stick with my tidewater tw30 , till i can afford to throw out 300 bucks for two abu garcia 7000's

I've got an Okuma on one of my rods, too, and it is a real sweety... smooth as silk.
