Saltwater Reels

Salt Water Fishing Reels

The world is covered with oceans, seas, gulfs and sounds where giant sportfish lie in wait - and you'll need a durable saltwater reel to bring those fish in. These fishing reels are built for the waters where Poseidon rules so you can stake your claim. A good saltwater reel is made of corrosion-resistant materials that will defy salty air, rainstorms, battling pelagics and anything else an angler might encounter.
