Seeker 60 Baitcast Reels

NOW SHIPPING

At Whisker Seeker Tackle, we strive to provide a more reliable solution and ensure products are worthy of the Whisker Seeker name. Our products are crafted through meticulous design, research, and rigorous long-term field testing. It’s been ten years in the making, but it’s finally here, our biggest product release ever. We worked with some of the top engineers and fishing reel experts in the industry to once again, change the way you catfish.

It’s with great pride that we announce the release of two exceptional series of baitcasting fishing reels. The Whisker Seeker 60 Series and 60 Pro Series round baitcasting reels. Pre-orders are open now shipping! You’ll find all of the specifications and details on the reel models below.

You’ll also soon find the Whisker Seeker Reel Accessory Kit or “RAK”. The “RAK” allows you to customize your Whisker Seeker reel in five different vibrant color options (our favorite is the Whisker Seeker Orange).

Soon after the baitcasting reel release you’ll find the release of multiple spinning reel models with the same meticulous design and craftsmanship put into our baitcasting reel models.


+ 15lbs max drag

Carbon fiber drag systems on baitcasting reels are the gold standard in the fishing industry due to their exceptional strength, durability, and smoothness. These drag systems use carbon fiber washers known for their high strength-to-weight ratio, resistance to high temperatures, and durability. they provide more consistent drag pressure and minimize the risk of losing fish due to line breaks. Moreover, they are lightweight, making them ideal for repeated casting and fighting strong fish. Carbon fiber drag systems also require minimal maintenance, resisting corrosion and performing well for extended periods. In summary, they offer unbeatable strength, smoothness, and durability, making them a top choice for anglers.

+ enhanced control

6-pin centrifugal brake systems are an innovative feature you'll find in high-quality baitcast reels. They're designed to enhance control and precision during casting, which can be a game-changer when you're out on the water. These braking systems work by using the principle of centrifugal force. As the spool spins, the brakes extend from the center of the spool to run along a shelf inside the side, creating friction that slows down the spool. This helps prevent backlash and improves accuracy during casting. The brake force is proportional to the spool speed, which adjusts dynamically to your casting strength.

+ crucial for casting

1.Smooth Casting: A synchronized level wind system ensures that the line guide and the spool move together during casting. This reduces line friction, leading to smoother and longer casts.

2. Reduced Line Wear: By ensuring that the line winds onto the reel evenly, a synchronized level wind system reduces wear and tear on the fishing line. This can prolong the life of your fishing line and save you money in the long run.

3. Improved Reel Longevity: The synchronized movement of the spool and line guide minimizes sideways stress on the working parts of your reel. This can reduce the risk of mechanical failures and improve the lifespan of your reel.

+ unmatched fluidity

Ultra-fast spool bearings play a critical role in the performance of a baitcast fishing reel. These bearings contribute to the smoothness and efficiency of the reel's operation, making them essential for a superior fishing experience. Moreover, when reeling in, the bearings support the spool, enabling it to handle the weight and tension of the catch without seizing or becoming damaged. This ability to withstand pressure is particularly crucial when dealing with larger catfish that put up a fight. Overall, ball bearings in a fishing reel spool contribute to a smoother casting and reeling experience, longer casts, and increased durability of the reel.

+ speed & power

The gear ratio is a crucial aspect of reel performance in the Seeker 60 & Seeker 60 Pro. It determines how many times the spool turns for each rotation of the handle, in turn, providing the perfect speed & power.

In a 5:3:1 gear ratio, the spool rotates five times for every handle turn. The ratio also indicates the relationship between the drive gear and the pinion gear. The drive gear, attached to the handle, spins the pinion gear. In this case, the pinion gear rotates once for every three rotations of the drive gear.
Understanding the gear ratio is vital for optimizing reel performance and achieving desired results when catfishing.

+ don't miss a bite!

Catfish are known for their subtle bites, and often, the only indication of a bite is the line moving out from your reel. Here's where a bait clicker comes into play. This sound is specifically designed to cut through the ambient noise of the fishing environment - the lapping of the waves, the rustling of the leaves, or even the low hum of a boat engine. The repetitive, high-pitched 'click-click-click' is acoustically engineered to have a frequency and decibel level that stands out against low-frequency background noises.A bait clicker proves invaluable by ensuring no bite goes unnoticed. It's a simple tool that can significantly enhance the catfishing experience.

+ Rigid construction

A solid one-piece CNC milled 6061-T6 aluminum frame on a baitcast fishing reel is a tremendous advantage for catfishing due to its exceptional strength and stability. This type of frame is crafted from a single block of aircraft-grade aluminum, which ensures that the reel can withstand the heavy loads and intense fights characteristic of hooking large catfish without flexing or warping. The rigid construction allows for better alignment of gears and bearings, leading to smoother operation, longer casting distance, increased durability, and improved performance when reeling in these powerful fish. Furthermore, the precision of CNC milling guarantees a precise fit and finish, which helps to enhance the overall feel and mechanical efficiency of the reel during long days on the water targeting big cats.

+ precision casting control

The Seeker 60 Pro model's magnetic brake system provides exceptional control during casting, minimizing the risk of "backlashes" or "bird's nests". By using magnets to create resistance, anglers can precisely adjust the spool's rotation speed to match lure weight and casting technique. This precision is particularly advantageous in catfishing, where varying bait sizes and accurate placement near structures are crucial. The ability to make subtle adjustments enables smoother, longer casts with less effort and greater accuracy, allowing catfish enthusiasts to strategically target these bottom-dwellers with efficiency and reduced line waste.
