I asked about yesterday about the Penn brand options but got no replies as of yet.. Does anyone have any recommendations for the live bait reel options? I'm sure i will hear alot of shimano recommendations, but I am not willing to spend that kind of money at this time.. I am looking for other good reels that will hold up on big catfish with the baitrunner/live liner option


any ideas?

I am a carper and I love my Okuma epixor bait feeders. Apparently they are not made any more. Look at the Okuma Avengers or Axeons and maybe Diawas. Take a look at this site. They are reasonable and ship fast. They specialize in carp gear. However, everything works just as well for catfish. Here are their choices of bait feeders.

I have a Okuma Avenger. It works great though the handle is a bit uncomfortable.

I am currently running 4 Okuma Avengers (ABF55) for my big cat rods. Each handled fish well over 50lbs (multiples over 30lbs) this spring without issue. I will be picking up 4 more of them to complete my catfish arsenal this fall. Great reels for the money. Love the baitfeeder to allow the fish to commit to the bait before I lock them down. The adjustable tension on the batifeeder makes it useful in just about every scenario.


If you're not living on the edge, you're taking up too much space!

Which handle? My ABF55's have the aluminum cylinder type knob/handle and I admit it took some getting used to.

Might have to order me one of these. http://www.eposeidon.com/kastking-pontus-spinning-reel-16396
If they are made anywhere near as good as the round KastKing Rover casting reel it will be a good deal. They are on the heavy side but if used for still fishing it don't really matter.

From Genesis: "And God promised men that good and obedient wives would be found in all corners of the earth."

Then He made the earth round...and He laughed and laughed and laughed!
