Offshore Angler Offshore Angler Inshore Extreme Low-Profile Baitcast Reel

Our Offshore Angler™ Inshore Extreme® Low-Profile Baitcast Reel is the reel that operates on the "extreme" end of the scale when it comes to inshore pursuits; the one that pushes strength and durability to the limit, yet offers the precision needed to present the most delicate bait to the most defined spot perfectly. We built our Inshore Extreme Low-Profile Reel beefy--really beefy--to give you the confidence to target big fish without resorting to oversized tackle. The internal gearing is over the top; both the pinion gear and the crank shaft are solid brass, for power you can rely on in the heat of battle. We used high-strength aluminum for the rigid 1-piece frame and sidecovers; both the power handle and drag star are forged aluminum; and the extra-deep wide spool is fully machined-aluminum as well, for casting performance you won't find in any other inshore reel. The 6-bearing system includes double-shielded, stainless steel bearings that won't yield to corrosion, plus PowerLock™ instant anti-reverse. Externally adjustable centrifugal braking system for precise lure placement in any conditions. With its nick-proof titanium nitrided line guide and overbuilt 6-disc drag that delivers up to 16.5 lbs. of drag power, the Inshore Extreme is the reel of choice for the trophy seeker! Solid brass pinion gear and crankshaft 1-pc. aluminum frame and sidecovers Forged aluminum handle and drag star Machined-aluminum spool 6 double-shielded stainless steel bearings PowerLock instant anti-reverse Adjustable Radial Tuned Braking <a href="https://basspro.scene7.com/is/content/BassPro/99_PDF/Product Manuals/OSA/pm_OSAInshoreExtremeIEX10HDA.pdf" target="_blankClick to view Product Manual

I live in South AL near the Gulf. I use mine in both, although primarily in saltwater (if conditions are bad, I go freshwater fishing) Can't go wrong in my opinion for under $150!

This would definitely be a good option for both. It has the power and line capacity for good saltwater performance, and it has enough finesse to throw freshwater baits. If you are looking to throw really light baits, I recommend going to something else.

7ft.6in. HV.FLIPPIN STICK. for nasty up close work,and 7ft. HV.to cast swimbaits. You can use any rod you want as far as that goes.But to play with MR.BIG.you need a power pole.Why have 16 and one half pounds of drag and not use it?

I put on 20# fireline and it works fine. I originally had 14# fireline and although it helped cast farther, the thin diameter of this flat line dug into the spool easily causing backlashes.

I may try the new fireline braid which is supposedly rounder and less prone to digging in.

no, this is similar to a bass fishing, lure retrieving reel. Not necessarily for bait fishing.
