High Speed Gear Ratios for Everything Bass

Aaron Martens lays out his reasons for fishing high speed reels for everything. When he speaks of high speed, we’re talking faster than 8.1:1.

The reasons are many, but it comes down to efficiency:

  • easier fishing
  • more casts
  • more water covered
  • more hookups
  • more fish staying hooked and boarding his boat

This is a fun and interesting uncut, free-form talk session with a guy with an uncanny ability to catch bass anywhere in the country.
