13 Fishing has been in the game for a few years now, mostly focusing on the smaller 100-200 size freshwater reels but with the A3 they’ve stepped it up to a traditional 300 size baitcaster to compete with the rest of the saltwater low profile market. It’s a great size to run for inshore and light offshore use, whether you’re fishing for calicos or schoolie tuna and yellowtail. They have plenty of drag to handle anything you can throw at them, and with the larger size you’ll have a lot more line capacity for the offshore game. They fit around 300 yards of 30lb line which will work great for lighter bait, and smaller lures. It’s always nice to have a lighter finesse setup on the boat in case you get a chance to get some school size fish, or if they’re mixed with bass on the kelps. These reel feature corrosion resistant bearings and salt water resistant internals to make them great for fresh and saltwater.
Everything you want in a big low profile reel. Drag and Power is the focus of the new A3 design, H.A.M. Hardened brass gearing cut with Japanese Hamai precision is the engine that drives the machine. The 40 lb Carbon Bull Drag is the stopping power to land your Trophy. The 13 Fishing Concept A3 Casting Reel with HD Aluminum Construction and Ocean Armor 2 Saltwater Protection is the perfect choice for targeting Pacific coast calicos, giant musky, double-digit bass, or gulf coast inshore monsters.
