Best Ice Fishing Reels

Ice fishing reels, in comparison to traditional spinning reels, typically have a smaller number of ball bearings in their construction. This is due to the fact that they are not employed in the casting and retrieving processes. In addition, high-quality ice fishing reels have components and lubricants that, even when exposed to subzero temperatures, will not freeze. This is an important safety feature.
