Peacock Bass Tackle
We Know What Produces!
Major factors to consider when selecting a quality baitcast reel for peacock bass are: well machined, durable gears (we recommend novice anglers use a ratio of 7.1:1, or close to it, especially when using topwater plugs) and an extremely smooth drag system.
Although many believe that it is the sheer power of the peacock bass that will exploit lesser-built reels, it is more the constant casting and retrieving of plugs that are typically much larger than the reels are designed for (in addition to heavy, no-stretch braided line) that can destroy a quality reel.
Select a baitcasting reel that possess a minimum of 100 yard capacity to handle 17 lb mono diameter for large topwater baits.
As a rule, braided line offering a break-strength of 65 to 80 lbs. possesses a line diameter that is equivalent of 17 to 25 lb monofilament. Have your reels cleaned or repaired, greased and lubricated before your trip.
