Affordable and Advanced: The Regal LT Spinning Reel for Bass Fishing

Published: Updated:

Fishing with a swim bait can be effective when fish are suspended in the water. Use a smaller swim bait with a boxer head and a specific reel, the Regal LT series, which is lightweight and has 10 bearings. Using a larger spinning reel like a 3000 or 4000 can be beneficial for line management, speed, and drag systems. The Regal L.T. is also noted to be an affordable option with advanced technology.

I cast way out over the point and it hit it on the drop, which sometimes happens, you're slipping and it's like you're, you're watching your line and it's like I should be on the bottom already. And sure enough, the smallmouth, they'll hit it when it amazing, especially when we're marking fish on the sonar. We're marking fish suspended in the system and we're trying, we're going a little bit deeper. Nice one. Right now, the nose on the swim bait and this is a nice kind of downside James is throwing a swim bait, the bigger size of this big bite.  So I just kind of downsized, get a boxer head. So I went down to the moon. I kind of finesse here, smaller rig on this

Alright, so here's a great swim bait set up when you're throwing swim baits like this. This is di awa, this isn't gonna spin this around. So you can see this is the regal LT that means light and tough, This is the 3000 uh D model and actually this with this new system here, this LT Series, this action is 3000 is three ounces lighter than the older version and the 1000 Regal LTs actually over an ounce lighter.

There's 10 bearings on this and this is a great value, A reel, very affordable reel and it's rare to find a reel on the market at the price point of this with 10 bearings this fantastic reel

A big trend in bass fishing over recent years is the use of larger spinning reels. One reason for that is the weight of modern spinning reels has been reduced dramatically. This affords anglers a few key advantages that they would have never had in the past, larger spinning reels, like a 3000 or 4000, allow for greater line management.

Next, the increased size of the school gives you a tremendous amount of speed to pick up line faster And last but not least. These larger reels have advanced drag systems from swim baiting the shallows to skipping docks and all the way out to drop. Shotting the depths. It's a good day to be a spinning real angler, great prices, lighter weights, better drags and a tremendous amount of advanced technology. All in one package, the regal LT.
