We use right-handed level-wind bait-casters, and have right/left handed spinning reels for the lefties! We provide loaner rods for those clients who opt to bring their specialized reels. This saves you airplane baggage costs as the reels can be stowed in your carry-on luggage at no extra charge.

Please notify your charter captain ahead of your trip for live bait availability.
