Fishermen's opinions about Okuma Catalina

Okuma Catalina

bought 2 -6 mos later only 1 works

I had purchased 2 of these to use for trolling with umbrella rigs on lk lanier for striper. within 6 mos of gentle use(no huge fish or multiple hookups, mostly schoolies in the 8-10 lb range) 1 of the reels lost all drag, the second reel still woks reliably but I am going back to shimano tekotas 500lc for now.
hopefully okuma can service the reel within warranty.

Great reel and value

I have used the Okuma Convector series reels for years and have been very happy with them. When it was time to add a couple more setups to the arsenal, I first considered them again, but for the difference in price on Amazon between the old standbys and the Catalinas, I couldn't pass up the deal.

For the extra money, the Catalinas have the secondary spool drag system, a couple more bearings and full aluminum side plates. The result is a super smooth reel that you can set faster on the water. You don't have to thumb the spool when setting the line out. You can open the bail and move get the next one ready without worry about a birdsnest.

Perfect for monster Walleye

This is my second Catalina Line Counter Reel.
I use the reels with planer boards to fish for monster Walleye on the Bay of Quinte every fall. Smooth drag required when landing a 10+lb Walleye is perfect Would recommend this reel without hesitation to anyone.
