The Northeast United States has an abundance of deep natural lakes that are home to some pretty healthy populations of largemouth and smallmouth bass. For anglers that are native to this area of the country, they usually don’t have much trouble figuring them out. For anglers who are from the south, though, they sometimes struggle figuring out how to catch bass in deep natural lakes in the northeast.

Best Reels for Bass FIshing

Two of The Best Reels for Bass Fishing

The smallest size CT10PTIC is great for panfish and some bass fishing. The line capacity is 100 yds. of 6 lb.

Clamping down the drag to the max of 16lbs is enough to stop most pike and bass, provided your line doesn’t break. The line capacity is 100 yds. of 8 lb. test.

If you are going after pike or big bass, the CT30PTIC is a good choice, and with a capacity of 120 yds. of 10 lb. line, it can handle bigger fish.

The largest model, CT40PTIC has a line capacity of 200 yds of 12 lb test. If you are going after salmon, steelhead, striper and redfish the largest reel is the one for you.
