A Bass Pro Shops® Exclusive!

Available in sizes to cover everything from walleye to salmon to muskies to striper, the Okuma StrataMaster reels are made exclusively for Bass Pro Shops. In addition to their line counters which measure in feet for precise presentations, the StrataMaster Reels feature an graphite anodized spool, smooth 2-bearing system, die-cast graphite drag star, oversize power handle with ergonomic handle knob, multi-disc drag system for smooth and efficient fish-stopping power and a corrosion-resistant 1-piece graphite frame.

Rated 4 out of 5 by 30 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by my first line counter reel I got this reel for salmon fishing in the norther California delta and so far it has worked like a champ. the line counter feature is great but you have to keep track if your line is going to bottom or if its being dragged behind boat. having downrigglers is the ideal thing to have. I have hooked on to some good size fish and reel them in with ease. July 2, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by GREAT value! I bought two (2) StrataMaster 20D combos and the bottom line is that they are fantastic value. They held up well to a season of Striped Bass live-lining and trolling on the Chesapeake Bay and will make you very happy, as long as you keep in mind that you paid far less for this reel than you would have for others. I will agree that the reel release sometimes sticks and you have to turn the handle slightly to get it to release- but it has never caused me a problem- just a minor inconvenience. The reel side panels are plastic, but the most important parts are metal. The drag functions well, but it's not the same as a Penn Squall. Of course, you are paying less than half the price of the Penn reel. All in all, if you are really concerned about a few minor inconveniences- then you need to spend some serious cash. But if you want a very solid reel on a budget- this is the reel for you. February 8, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great reelWorks great Good reel for the money,will buy another.Great action, no problems October 14, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good purchase for the money I've been using the 20D for about 6 months now. So far I have not experienced any problems. The line counter is easy to read and is accurate. I've caught many large hybrids and one medium size striper with this reel. The drag is smooth. Still though, it would be improved a little. My only annoyance is that sometimes you can't engage the line out alarm without giving an extra half crank of the handle. I like that the reel is flipped back into gear without physically flipping the switch. September 10, 2012

A: 
I own both Stratamaster and AccuDepth as well as a Sealine SG47. The Sealine costs a little more but it is by far the best of the bunch. The Stratamaster has 2 bearings while the AccuDepth has none... hard to imagine a reel with no bearing these days. I have some cheap $20 reel that comes with 4 bearings. I wish Daiwa had put a couple bearings in the AccuDepth. The Okuma reels are good while new... the drag is very powerful. But I have owned all the reels for about the same time and you can feel the wear in the drive gears. BTW I use all the reels for deep sea fishing.

A: 
The smaller one 20 model is okay... I have done it but the larger ones don't seem to cast that well... or maybe because I have heavier line on mine. I use my reels mostly for deep sea "drop down" style with a 6-oz sinker.

A: 
I own 25 and 30 models of StrataMaster reels. The 30 model works great with a 7' MH rod. That's what I use for seabass, scup and bluefish fishing. I have used the reel for haddock and cod fishing. It's the most versatile model. The 25 model I only use on 6'6" med rod for scup.

You can use it for Catfishing but it is more of a Northern Angler Reel. Try http://www.basspro.com/Freshwater-Fishing-Fishing-Reels/Species-Catfish/_/N-1z11dcnZ1z0xeiz/Ntk-Search_All/Ntt-catfish#Species

A: 
I was using the Penn Levelwinds and still think they are good reels. I lost one though and decided to replace it. Saw the Okuma and liked the way it worked better, so I took a chance. I like how you don't have to flip the lever like you do on the levelwinds. On the Okuma you can just crank the handle and lever engages. Takes a step out of catching the fish especially when the bite is light. With the Penn LW I have to flip the switch and then crank down. With the Okuma I just crank down. I'm using both reel now and I hook more fish with the Okuma. I fish for stripers and hybrids. I plan to buy a couple more of the Okumas.

A: 
You just got the reel, it takes time to get used to the settings...you aren't getting distance out of it because the brake was probably too hard, but I'm sure if you loosen it you'll get a birds nest immediately. Just take your time.

A: 
These reels are not designed for long casting. The noise may be the clicker set in on position (small button on left side of reel that moves up and down) You can loosen the spool tention with the small round knob on right side of reel behind drag star. This will produce free spooling, loosen it very much and your line will freespool and tangle.
