Default Trolling reel vs Bait caster

What's the difference? They look the same to me. Most "trolling reels" look like older bait casters, what gives?

I think it has to do with line capacity and the cast gears. Trolling reels are not made to be casted like a bait 'caster' is.

Get a high capacity Ambasseduer in the 6500 series that has a line clicker and you can use it for both purposes, and not have to buy two different reels.

That is what I used to use for trolling untill I bought a couple Diawa Sealine linecounters for trolling.

Ok, thanks. I just wondered what the difference was, they look pretty much the same. I don't really troll, I hardly even use my boat anymore, but I keep seeing deals on "trolling reels" and wondered.

the only real difference is a trolling reel has a switch to keep it from running out while you are draging your lure behind your boat
