BY SPECIES
Choosing the perfect rod and reel for a target species can be a daunting task. With the understanding that each species comes in variable sizes and different techniques are best served by different product attributes, we offer the following suggestions to help narrow your search.
Serrano
The inspired design and construction excellence of the Okuma Serrano is the result of Okuma's fishery participation and understanding taking the lead on design. Optimized for harsh saltwater conditions, each component addresses not only corrosion resistance, but also the delivery of the drive and drag system strength necessary to take on the most powerful inshore species. Being the lightest, and strongest, and most durable low-profile baitcast reel in the lineup, Serrano specifications are impressive, but even more so is the experience of actually fishing it. Find total comfort in the ergonomic design, in-swept handle and oversized knobs. Take pride in effortless casting. Experience the speed and power of Serrano's responsiveness. Pair Serrano with a C3 rod for a premium matched system, and turn it loose on Stripers, Redfish, Trout, Bonefish, Permit and Calicos, or the complete range of freshwater species.

Catalina
More than a decade ago, Okuma took the leadership position in the development of the line counter platform' and the Catalina continues to advance that position.

But even more important is the Okuma Tension Spool Control system, or TSC. A secondary drag system housed within the cast control, TSC turns downrigger, diving planer and heavy lead trolling into a simplified one-handed operation, eliminating the need for thumb pressure regulation when deploying your trolling spread. And finally, Okuma's patented Mechanical Stabilizing System ties the spool shaft, pinion gear and pinion gear bearing together with a single plate for perfect alignment over the long term.
