Good stripper / fluke reel?

20 posts in this topic

I fish out in Montauk so the bass are decently sized. The rod is a shimano trevala 7' ml. I only want to use the combo for chicken rigging 6-8 oz for fluke when the tide is strong. Here are some ideas I have: Accurate tern 300, Accurate fury 400n, Accurate BV 300, Maxel Hybrid 20. Any others you guys would recommend, preferably made in the USA? Also, I'm not a fan of Avets.

 

Thanks,

The high-end reels you listed may not be as self-serviceable as a Penn, Abu, or Newell.  Not sure if that is a factor for you.

Not a factor for me. If I can't service the reel myself I can bring it to the local tackle store or ship it to a reel service place.

I think I'm going with the tern 300. It's more affordable has lots of drag, good size. It's better than the fury and the valiant is too expensive. I don't think the maxel hybrid would be very good for the deeper water in Montauk. Let me know what you guys think, I'm still considering.

The PENN Torque TRQ15LD2, TRQ15XNLD2, and TRQ25NLD2 models all fit in the size range you describe. Very well-made reels, and are made in USA.

Jigmaster.  Made in USA model.  Cheap and easy to find, fix, and will last about 2 years longer than a rock with minimal care.

I got the accurate tern 300. I haven't used it yet but I love it. Nice weight great looks small size, lots of line, lots of drag. Probably the nicest star drag reel I've seen.

I don't know what reel you would use for strippers but a 10 spot is an excellent lure.

Gotta link?

If he did, the house software would block it. He's right that a $10 will do far more for strippers than any fishing reel.

You don't need high end reels for Stripers or Fluke. Penn Fathom 15 would do the trick just fine.

Yeah, true enough. 

 

But I came here thinking these would be talk about strippers using fluke gear, not stripers. The title is a little misleading.
