Does anyone have any good recommendations for a saltwater baitcaster that won’t break my bank? I was reading a lot of guides like that one OutsideGuru.com Where detail review about it. But mainly want to get some advice from people, that use really good saltwater baitcasting reels. Thank!

MANY years ago we used to fish out in the Gulf of Mexico. We used Ambassadeur 5000's with the drag loosened. I wouldn't hesitate to do it again.

It's not about the fish. It's about the pond. Take care of the pond and the fish will be fine. PB subscriber since before it was in color.

Garcia 5500c is a tried and true. I use a Garcia blue max or black max . A real smooth reel at Wally World for $59 for a rod and reel. I love it
