Salmon, trout, and walleye anglers will enjoy this unique non-casting approach for drop-fishing (“mooching”) in current, Detroit River-style pole-lining, downrigging or flatline trolling. The Shimano® Moocher Plus® GT Reel is a direct-drive reel that rides under the rod like a fly reel, but there the similarity ends. Its large-capacity spool and quality internals can handle mono, fluoro, or braid with equal ease; it’s geared for absolute power, with a waterproof Dartainium® drag that engages only when the handle is not being turned—so you fight the fish, not the drag. Made tough all-around, with a graphite frame and spool, sturdy metal palming ring, and non-slipping rubber handle grips.

  • Graphite frame and spool
  • Sturdy metal palming ring
  • Non-slipping rubber handle grips
