I was fishing the other day and I caught some makerell. No problem untill I was trying to take the fish out of the water.
I had to reel the fish up about 20 to 30 feet from the water to the rock I was standing on.
I was useing a flladen bass 10Ft 30 to 80 grams spin rod, no problem there, but the reel a mitchell advocet gold 4000 felt like that this sort of work was a bit too much for it.
What reel would be a better choice for the lifting fish from sea to land.
I even thought about about cutting the rig down to 2 or even 1 hook to help.
I have a 12 foot carp rod I am going to use now for makerells, but I still need a reel, Help and advice would be very welcome.

Most of the fixed spool reels have a high gear ratio for pier and rock work any of the small mulipliers should suffice.
Perhaps someone could recomend a specific reel that they use.

I personally wouldn't recommend using a small multiplier for winching fish up a pier wall - it's a sure way of busting your gears- a drop net is a better solution or a more heavy duty multiplier if a drop net isnt feasible. perhaps a 7000 size reel- definitely not a 6500.

You go out and buy a shiny new ABU 6500 and try cranking a string of mackerel up a 20 or 30 ft wall with it- then listen and wait for the gears to go bang which will shortly be followed by the sound of crying.

Personally, i would bring the fish in close, rest the rod and handball them up. Cheers..Mick

Would a larger FS reel do a 6000 or 8000 size?

A larger fixed spool would go some way to alieviate the problem although as Ilurvmatthayes said a 7000 or okuma 30 should do the trick especially if you catch a larger fish than you are targeting ie mackerel.

I myself use the Abu 7,500 as an allrounder but not for the reasons stipulated by others, the reason I use this reel is that I can get my thumb around the spool for casting, if you get a snap off normally you have enough line left on the spool to carry on fishing, just tie on another shockleader instead as with the smaller reels you would have to replace the whole line to continue fishing.

This reel can be used for general boat fishing, beach casting and pier work so perhaps this would be a better alternative.
Cheers

I have been looking and I think a Shimano Aerlex 7000 xas is what I am going to buy, any info on this reel would be very much appreciated.

I've been hauling mackerel up the side of rockmarks for years with a penn 525 and never heard a sqeak out of it. Slosh 20 would do the job well and retail for about 80. If you are just hauling a multiplier is more suitable than a fixed spool imho.
