This fighter rides the cutting edge in offshore reel technology. It’s overbuilt to handle almost any game fish, so it’s perfect for bluewater. Everything non-essential has been engineered out, creating one light, sharp-looking reel. Features one-piece X-Cräftic™ alloy frame and a Carbon Matrix™ Drag System for a huge drag range. Three stainless steel HPCR® ball bearings plus instant anti-reverse and anti-distortion spool.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Cobiakiller Alphamar 20 For Billfish
Took A winter trip to Cabo and use the Alphamar for striped marlin both trolling and live bait casting. The reel worked flawlessly. No problems with the preformance of the drag smooth release and take out of drag. Spooled the reel with 50lb. Dyneema with a top shot of Flourocarbon. The reel held 600 + yards of line. We caught 23 Striped Marlin during the week, half were caught using the Alphamar reel. Great reel great looks with high quality brass gears and superior drag.
Work to FIsh....... Enjoy your time on the water!

I would try it. When catfish aren't biting try anything. They are usually attracted to stuff that stinks so why not. I didn't use this type of salmon eggs. But I remember using Balls of Fire, salmon eggs and I caught a 7 pound flat head. Just put like 3 on a 1/0 hook and see what bites. Good Luck
