Electric Swordfishing & Dredge Reels
Electric Reels for Swordfishing & Pulling Dredges
In this category, you will find our most powerful reels suitable for pulling large heavy triple tiered dredges and catching swordfish. All of the reels listed feature the necessary maximum drag to pull a heavy dredge through the water, yet a drag curve suitable for the lower drag settings require for catching swordfish.
Dredges not only have weight, but depending on the lures that make up the dredge, and the boat's trolling speed, a considerable amount of resistance will be exerted. Reels that do not have sufficient drag will not work, once the pull of the dredge on the reel exceeds the reel's maximum drag setting, the line will begin to slip. LIne slippage will require a decrease in trolling speed, which may not be consistent with a proper presentation.
