When it comes to reels, I like to have a faster retrieve in situations where there is a lot of cover. When I make a long cast and my bait hits the water, I want to get that bait moving right away. I don’t want to give the bait a chance to get bogged down in the grass or brush, especially when throwing it into 1-2 feet of water. The Johnny Morris Platinum Signature series has been a reel that I’ve used for the last two or three years with a lot of success. There is a slower retrieve reel that will allow you to finish in different situations. But I’d say eight out of ten times I’m using this higher speed retrieve reel when I’m fishing. In scenarios where a lot of fish are darting out through the holes in the grass or from behind all the brush, I feel like for me to win the battle, I’ve got to set the hook really quick, get them turned my way, and gather up a lot of line. That’s one reason a high-speed reel on the deck of your boat is going to help you the next time you’re out on the water. WHEN YOU SHOULD THROW A HIGH-SPEED REEL
