    Evening all,

    Never learned about reel sizes for different applications although I have been fishing all my life. By example I use a millionaire for boat fishing which is small. What sizes would you recommend for say general boat in shallowish depths, wrecking in say 100m plus and something for shark or large fish which can make big runs. Cheers guys.

    Hi David, Pretty much common sense, match the reel, rod and line for the species of fish you want to catch, 6500 size most inshore fish, 7500 reef wrecking, 10000 wrecking then it's the lever drag, line capacity of 30-50lbs main line.
