Caught a ton of big bass with a spin casting reel.
The fish does not know I am using a spin castin reel

Thanks all - Mrs. Mattson and I certainly appreciate the comments. Good luck out there with getting your own trophy bucket!

Forgot to mention - I was asked about the handle - well it broke and I fixed it. A rough repair, but goes with the territory of all that rod has been through with me: Best Rod Ever!

I pick up and use the bait-casters & spinning too, but there is absolutely nothing in the world like hauling one in with that classic 33 . . . and you can keep one running with little fuss for decade after decade.
