Best Reels For Big Fish

With decades of experience chasing everything that swims, the In-Fisherman staff and friends have a wealth of knowledge to share on the best reels for big fish. While many of the biggest and baddest freshwater fish reside in waters far from our back doors, these exotic fish offer the best gauge of a reel's durability and performance. I've highlighted reels that stand up to feisty foreign fish as well as the tough guys of North American waters.
