Picked up a new reel and I’m pretty stoked about it! The Shimano Tranx 400 reel. I’ve never been a fly or die kind of guy, and the bass fishing gear in my car would show you that. That’s just it, though. All of the traditional casting gear that I own is made to target bass on lakes on rivers and lakes.
I have never caught a musky on gear, and they have all come on the fly. I catch a handful per year if I’m lucky. It’s time for me to take advantage of the place I call home (Minnesota), and up my chances of hooking up with more, and possibly bigger musky.
I want a set up that’s on the lighter end of the musky specific spectrum. Be on the look out for more musky gear posts, and a full report of my new reel, the Shimano Tranx 400.
