Anyone use lever drag reels?

Postby Jaimeson » Fri Feb 08, 2013 12:49 am

I got my Atlantic/Gulf HMS permit today and and plannin on launchin outta Venice, LA to hunt some tuna. My experienced friend highly suggested using a drag reel. I have some Senator 9/0's which I thought would be adequate but he says not a good idea.

Any advice/input appreciated.

I use both spinning and lever drag reels. I think any will do as long as the drag is set under the breaking strength of the line.

I'm dying to get some Yellowfin and Bonita's this spring.
