from Houston, TX asked:
October 17, 2016
Can you run this reel in saltwater/inshore applications? Im looking for a durable high-end Shimano bait casting reel for redfish along the Texas Gulf coast, any other recommendations? Any help would be greatly appreciated as the local fishing stores haven't supplied many answers to this question. I'm not a huge fan of Curado's so any other suggestions?
I would recommend using the Shimano Chronarch CI4 Plus. This reel size and features are fitting for redfish.
