  • Which shimano reel POW salmon

    Hi Guys,
    Need some experienced advice, taking a trip to POW island to catch some Coho Salmon from the river bank, I will need to run 30lb line. We did this trip 3 years ago and the Salmon destroyed the rental fishing gear after just a few catches, seems the point where the handle connects to the reel is the weak spot, we trashed 3 reels on just 8 fish! Trying to decide if the Socorro 6000 will hold up, or should I go with the Spheros 5000, what do you guys think?

    Get a mid range Shimano in the 4000 size. Line it with good braid and use a mono leader.

      I have both the 4000 spheros and a 6000, I use the 4000 for silvers and reds and the 6000 for kings and salt water fish. I love them both. Btw I have 25lb braid on the 4000 and 50lb braid on the 6000.

          Riverbank coho?

          Even the 3000 Spheros is WAY overkill.

          Any of the 2500 series spinning reels in their lineup would be more than adequate…. it's just a matter of picking your price point

            I run 4000s, I like the line capacity and bigger spools. I try and buy one with a retail price over $100 and they seem to hold up for several years. I try to catch them on clearance and rarely pay more than $60 or so.

              Don't use just any braid; go with power pro. I like 40# for silvers. any lighter and it is so fine it is more difficult to deal with. In the mono world, 17 or 20# is as heavy as you need, and a 4000 series spinning reel will handle that. go with new line, like the maxima ultra green. Don't go with cheap, old mono's. mono line needs to be refreshed annually. 30# for coho is wayyyy overkill; I use heavier in braids just to bring the diameter up a little.
