    My sister lives in Alaska to start with and goes fishing for halibut regularly. She is often fishing 200 to 400ft down. She just drops the line off the boat and let’s it go down all the way then they let’s the boat flow with current and bobs the line. We were talking how it’s so hard to tell how much line is left when trying to pull one up with how often it doves straight back down.i was looking on Amazon for a line counter but almost all of them have bad reviews. I am also not for from a Cabellas and a bass proshop. Does anyone have any recommendations? I am ls not against buying her a whole new real to put on. The biggest one she has pulled up so far is 250lbs.

    I like using line that changes color ever 20 yards, works almost as well as a counter.

    Your best bet is a line counter reel rather than a clip on. How much are you looking to spend?

    Hey , I suggest using the okuma cold water line counting reel. I use this reel for the exact same application but for sturgeon, this reel can be found on amazon for pretty cheap as it is on sale right now. It also has 4.5 stars with 125 reviews so don’t just take it from me I think it’s a good one !
