Hi,

I'm hoping someone would be able to suggest a small multiplier reel, I'll be using it to cast small 2/3 inch live bait a maximum of 15/20 feet, I'll be using it with a short medium weight spinning rod, fishing for fish which need to be able to take the bait and run, so am I right in saying it needs incorporate a ratchet? Also I take it one with a level wind option would also be preferable? I've seen multipliers used with kayak rods, would one of those be suitable? Oh, I almost forgot preferably left hand wind!

If anyone can shed some light, offer advice, or ideas I would much appreciate it as, I'm sure my terminology indicates, I'm still very green when it comes to sea fishing!

Many thanks.

Find a sweedish 4601 or 5601 I'd suggest or a low profile USA style baitcaster like a Quantum Accurist. Ratchet could be handy for what you

Thanks, the Abu is more along the lines of what I had in mind, but sooo hard to find! Can't seem to find anything that small with a ratchet, but I have fished this way before using a baitcaster with some success, but just struggled casting any distance
