Zebco 808 Saltwater - great for catfishing


The Zebco 808 SW is a nice reel. I purchased it over the regular 808 or the 888 as I felt the fact that it was made for saltwater it would hold up better than the others I mentioned. I was a little skeptical that I would like the power handle as I generally prefer the double paddle style, but I do like it and think it works great. I still would like a choice of handle styles though. Still fishing the line that came on it and as it's one of the few Zebco reels that will handle braid, I'll probably give that a try when I switch out the line. So is this guy just talking about reels, or does he actually use it? Well, as a matter of fact I used it for some early morning catfishing on the 4th of July and got a couple of nice eating size channel cats. It casts well, reels smoothly and the drag seems decent, though I have not caught anything to give it a good workout yet. I have it mounted on a 7 foot ugly stick medium action pole. PROS: easy to use, well built, works well. Seems built to last a long time. CONS: a bit big for my needs. I fish channel cats more than some of the other bigger species and it would be really nice if Zebco built something along the lines of a 33max size reel but with 808SW or Omega build quality.

I have always been a fan ...


I have always been a fan of the 33 reel but for large channels it takes some finesse to land them on 8 pound test. This year I decided to buy a 808 because I have never liked spinning reels. I have used it 12 times this year and I am happy with its performance. It has landed a 21 inch channel and many 18 +. It actually seems to preform better with bigger fish. Its not as smooth as the 33 and the drag lacks percussion but it's up to the job. It's the only spinncast that will handle a big cat. Well worth the money.
