My main reel is an Abu Garcia 6500 C3, which is loaded with 50 lb Tuff line. All my fishing is from boats, but sometimes I need to cast such as when bobbber jig fishing. I've had some major backlashes that have taken a lot of time to untangle. I am wondering if there is a baitcasting type reel with similar line capacity to the 6500 C3, that is also strong enough for salmon. The guys at Fishermens' told me that such a reel does not exist; and that baitcasting reels were designed for bass fishing and are not strong enough, and do not have enough line capacity for salmon fishing. And they dislike the Abu Garcia anti-backlash model, but I am not sure why. I know, I know, "just learn how to cast the 6500 without making bird nests". But is it true that there are no good baitcasting reels big enough for salmon?
