Wanted Line counter trolling reels and combos

Recommended Posts

I am looking to expand my arsenal. I need a couple line counter rod and reel combos to set up as lead core rods for Browns. 1 And 2 color. And I need a couple of good line counter reels to set up for 7 color. Ores for salmon and fishing deeper. Let me know if you have some extras in good shape. Nothing out of tune or slipping please.  Thanks

You don’t need line counters for lead cores, especially the longer cores. For your short cores, any L-ML Downrigger rod will work. For your longer cores look at M rigger rods, or leadcore rods, Daiwa Great Lakes rods have a very nice leadcore rod that wouldnwork perfect!! For the longer core, do yourself a favor and find a high speed reel, Daiwa Seagate 50, Sealine 50, or Saltist 40,50 will fit the bill perfectly. I know Okuma has reels, but not sure which models will work. Good Luck

Just keep some lead colors around and tie em on your monos or braids or whatever you have extra. Easy enough to throw 1 or 2 colors on, then cut off and save. Great way to save on a whole combo just for one species / program.

For 3 color set ups we use cheap okuma level windes in the 30 size. Drags seem to loosen while riding but besides from that they get the job done. The 30's have enough room for backing to be able to run them out on boards. As far as rods go I like a medium weight rigger rod in 8'6'". Good luck!

I have a pair of the older diaWa sealine 47HS . They are perfect lead fore. They were built well. These were barely ever used. I bought them new 90's hardly ever used them.
