Hey All,
Welcome to the working end of things.
This is where the rubber hits the road when it comes to catching and landing fish, big or small.
I hope to share some information and advice between us all so that we can ensure that once we find the target fish and convince him to bite, that we can bring him Yak-side.

Please feel free to contribute ideas, views, reviews and/or questions so that we all can get the most out of our time on the water.

Rods n Rigs isn't just for yakfishers! :p Non-Yakers are welcome as well!

I've been looking through Cabelas and BPS at all the saltwater spinning reels that can handle 8-12 lb. test mono line and reading the reviews.  One of the complaints about some of the reels is that they take too much time or disassembly to clean after a fishing trip.  This leads to two queries:
1.  What is your procedures for cleaning your gear after a day of fishing?
2.  What reel could you recommend that is reliable and "easy" to maintain?
Thanks all!

A1) Aftere a day of saltwater fishing I give my rod, reel, and any lures or hooks used a simple freshwater rinse down.
Drag still tightened, lean rod against the side of the house, spray with a heavy mist allow the water to drain/run down the rod from tip to butt, pick up rod and rinse again butt to tip while rotating so I get the eyes well, the srinse the reel well for 360 degrees but not forcing wa hard streanm of water.
Let drip dry, loosen the drag, and put away.

A2) To many personal opinions here to mention a specific reel. $100-$200 range Shimano Saros/Stradic, Daiwa Tierra/TD-Advantage/Sol are good choices.

Maybe once a year I tear my reels down, stirp out the grease and oil, re-lube oil the bearings grease the gears, reassemble and I'm good to go for another year.
