Medium Spinning Reels The 2500 or 25 size reel is my choice for dock shooting for crappie or finesse tactics for bass such as drop-shotting. I spool the reel with 6-pound line and match it with a 7-foot light action rod for dock shooting.

What size reel is best for panfish?
Almost always, it’s better to fish a reel one size larger than a given manufacturer’s smallest size. So that usually means I use a 2000-size spinning reel for panfishing. With a wider-diameter spool, casts fly farther due to looser coils that better resist tangles, and propel lures farther.
How do I know what size reel to get?

Can reels be too big?
If your reel is too big for your line size, you’ll have more line than you need and your casting distance will be impaired. Customers will bring in a 3000 size reel and ask for 6lb line. A 500 to 1000 size reel would be better suited.
What do the numbers on my reel mean?
When you turn the reel’s handle, you are directly turning the main drive gear. So that means when the larger main drive gear is turned one revolution by the handle, it turns the smaller pinion gear, the larger number of times causing the spool to do the same.
