Zebco Complaint - Zebco 733 reel

Review by Dave1992 on 2010-06-07
I have been a zebco fisherman for years. Ive used them all from the 33's-733. Then I went out and bought a new reel and pole. So I got what looked like a really nice combo, but in fact was the worst reel I have ever bought. It all started with the first bite, it wouldn't even reel in a 5pd channel cat. I ended up pulling it in by hand because the reel was popping so bad. All in all, it was a very bad reel. DONT BUY IT!!

I prefer to fish for Channel Cat with my bare hands; we call it noodling around these parts. As for your new setup, thanks for the info.

MDS, I've read about noodling. They do it in the Allegheny River here. You're either very talented or somewhat crazy! Those catfish are huge!

Only time I got snakebit was doing what we call grappling for catfish. Stuck my hand in a hole and went up...bad thing.

The catfish are easy; it's the snapping turtles you have to watch out for

It seems we forgot about the original complaint, the reel sucked to catfishing
