I am thinking About buying electric reel for halibut fishing also will be jigging for squid.
Any recommendation for what one to get. I need one that holds at-least 600 ft of 100 lb. test line.
Thanks Skeeter

I doubt you will get any responses from anyone in WA. Halibut ended today in my area, and since it's just a few weeks long, and usually only 3-4 days per week of those weeks, odds of catching a big one are slim, so it just wouldnt be worth the expense.

I've been looking at the Elec-Tra-Mate myself but am looking more at fish winch... Looks pretty solid and good reviews. Elec-Tra-Mate use to be less than $200 a few years ago and now are $600-800 which I consider out of my price range for the short butt season we have here. But the fish winch is about $300 and has good statistics so I may be jumping on that...

I did run a wanted ad on Craigs List and hope to find a good used one at a fair price... ya just never know...

Got mine on FleaBay, one brand new one for less than $100 due to a mis-typed "ElecT-ra-Mate" title that I also mis-typed, pure luck ;)

My biggest thrill when fishing, (after watching the downrigger trip) is the ensuing battle. Yes, it is a pita bringing those things up from depth, but what are we out there for?? I tell my son that it's character building!

Well, I used mine for the first time on Taylor Bank outside of Port Hardy at 220+ feet. Had a hit of some kind and started to lift the rod and felt a slight pull back. Hit the switch and shortly after, had a nice rock fish at the end of the rod... The non-electric caught the country of Canada and despite my best tries, it won and took a new spreader bar, 24 oz ball, black herring and one of those strobing lights... 80 # test and the country won...

Penn does make an electric reel. I had a Penn Senator 6/0 with electric. I fished rockcod with this reel in 125 fathoms of water. Worked great for hauling the rockcod with just the flick of a switch. I had this reel filled with Monel wire. Monel is far superior that mono or Dacron . Monel does not scope out like Dacron . Monel goes down straight and you can feel even the small bites. Don't try to fish deep water with mono. The mono stretches as you wind it up and then when it dries out it becomes tight enough to split your spool. Tight lines.

Man it must suck having those type of fishing laws :(

I use a small Diawa elec its the blue one, 80 lb spider wire.

It is a nice winch to get the 10lb small ones to the boat for release,

Most electric reels you still need topull up and let the reel pull line in as you lower it, some exceptions, very expensive heavy duty reels, and even then a large halibut will taks line.

I have the Shimano Force 9000 electric with 100# line and just love it, I bring up 80-100# halibut with very little work from 270'.
I have arthritic in both hands and now I can keep fishing for bottom fish. B)
