unleash the power
June 4, 2019
I have the TACII 25 and this thing is a workhorse. Set the drag before you go because too much drag takes all the fun out of it. Adjustments are very easy and the reel has tons or torque to bring in that trophy. I haven't tried it bottom fishing yet but I would assume it can bring up big tiles and other beast from the depths.
Prostwo speed drag rating power/torque looks amazing!

Great bottom reels

I’ve had a Talica 20 for about a year now and it’s been great. Very durable, high quality, awesome drag, and plenty of line capacity. Perfect for bottom fishing for grouper and tarpon.

Awesome Reel
January 29, 2019
I own 2 Talica 25 reels and they are worth every penny. Spool the reel with 2/3 braid, 1/3 mono and you have the perfect setup for offshore tuna. This reel can stop a train in its tracks.
ProsLight weight, smooth, and powerful.
ConsThe strike position can get a little getting used to. It doesn't take much to go past the strike position if you are not mindful of your reel.

Love this reel. The Tac16ii is the perfect size for me. I use it for fly-lining sardines to catch bluefin tuna. Filled with 80# braid, had no problem landing 50-150# fish. Awesome drag, very smooth. Casts very well.
Proslots of drag; 2 speed; reasonable line capacity
Consgets scratched up easily

The one and done reel for saltwater fishing. 20-2 speed is great for everything from small snapper off the bottom, to big MAhi, wahoo, and has enough drag to pull Goliaths from the wreck.

I have 5 of these reels plus two of the 16’s. Some of the reels are 6 years old and they remain perfect in every way. Easy to service, great to use and an all around awesome product.
ProsEase of use Resistance to salt water
ConsThe only possible one would be the lack of a casting drag option

I don't know of another lightweight reel that offers the perfect balance of heavy line capacity, smooth drag, and is still cast live baits with ease. The TAC50II has allowed my clients to quickly and effectively land fish that they never dreamed of!!! This year alone the TAC50II has put the breaks on marlin over 600lbs and Bluefin tuna up to 550lbs in 3000+ feet of water!!!!

As a full time charterboat operator I need my gear to perform on a daily basis and never let my customers down. This reel coupled with super braid like Power Pro has changed the bottom fishing game for me. My customers are now landing with ease the larger fish that used to break them off quickly, thus helping me make memories for many anglers. The monstrous drag gives us the ability to stop big fish in their tracks and the 2 speed option the Talica offers gives us the ability to wrench those larger fish away from the rocks. Thanks goes out to the designers at Shimano for delivering such a powerful reel in a small package.

What does the "CAM" stand for?
1 Answer
The "cam" is a advanced drag system that has a softer curve with a aggressive drag meaning you can gradually ramp up the drag instead of going from full to strike.

Summer in South Florida has been rolling on without a hitch. Heat, humidity and lots of bait. Our bait run started several weeks ago with huge schools of pilchards and sardines arriving on the rock piles offshore and the inshore waters alike. These baits can... Read More
