    I thought It’d be interesting to see what everybody uses the most.

    I use BCs almost exclusivley.

    I’d say I use my BC the most, but if I’m fishing real slow I like a spinning reel for some reason…

    Well, I love fly fishing, but spinning rods and reels fit most applications. Although I just aquired new Baitcasting outfits, so I have been using them quite a bit! :thumbup

    I use spinning rods for most of my fishing. However, when I fish for ‘ulua’ or giant trevally, I bust out the Penn 4/0 HLW or the Newells and bait cast. Well, we really don’t bait cast because we use a technique called “slide bait” but the bait cast reels hold more line. [=}=]

    Pretty much just spinning. The only time I use a bait caster is for musky.

    I use spinning for panfish and trout or when I feel like using the ultralight for w/e. Baitcasters for bass, catfish, etc. [=}=]

    When I’m not throwing a fly line… (it only happens once in a great while) I’ll run a spinning reel. I never got into bait casting reels much. Never really saw the point.
