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.
Clarion
With levelwind, high-speed levelwind and levelwind line counter models, the Okuma Clarion family of fishing reels showcases Okuma's enthusiasm for our patented Mechanical Stabilizing System, or MSS. The MSS system ties the spool shaft, pinion gear, pinion gear bearing, drive shaft and main gear together with a single support system. The result is superior alignment and performance over the long term. Choose Clarion reels for salmon, stripers, lake trout, large catfish, rockfish' anywhere Clarion's powerful XL Gearing and multi-disc Carbonite drag system can be turned loose on big fish.
Clarion Line Counters include Okuma's Tension Spool Control, or TSC function. This secondary drag system governs the spool when in freespool and turns downrigger, diving planer and heavy lead fisheries into easy, one-handed presentations.
Starting at $144.99
Convector
Convector levelwinds and line counters revolutionized the fishing tackle industry, offering a powerful gearing and drag system platform previously unattainable at the Convector's value-oriented price. Today, the Convector has grown to a position as a staple in salmon fisheries from Alaska to the Great Lakes, and as the “go-to” reel for Striper and bottom fishing anglers. The Convector's no-nonsense design features durable brass main and pinion gears, stainless steel reinforcing side plate rings, and Okuma's patented Mechanical Stabilization System that maintains parts alignment over the long term. Line counter models are available in both right and left hand retrieve to serve all anglers.

Andros 5II
The Okuma Andros was born from a total commitment to maximizing the fishing experience within applications defined by 15- to 40-pound line. Anticipating the use of braided lines, every aspect of Andros' two-speed design has been optimized to deliver capability commonly reserved for reels twice its' size: from drag power to line capacity, from greased Carbonite drag, to Andros' minimal frame rise above the spool. The payoff? Fitting in the palm of your hand, Andros eliminates the bulk that deadens the connection between angler and fish. You're more agile. You feel everything. You experience more of every encounter. Paired with an Andros Jigging rod, the Andros two-speed turns heads both above and below the water's surface with forward-thinking design and exhilarating power.
Starting at $349.99
Solterra
The Solterra is Okuma's broadest line of lever drag reels, with applications from Alaska to Panama and Hawaii to Maine. Building on a base of stainless steel main gears, pinion gears and spool shaft, Solterra's extend outward with anodized aluminum spools and durable, corrosion resistant frames. Models begin at size 10 and continue through 50-wide, delivering an angler-driven selection of single-speed, two-speed, open top, trolling and levelwind models that anticipate every application.

Cedros Coastal
It?s obvious when home town pride rises to the surface and Cedros Coastal rods are a prime example. Crafted to excel in demanding Southern California fisheries where rod actions undergo rigorous scrutiny, Cedros Coastal rods are an exciting addition to any inshore environment. Lightweight one-piece graphite composite blanks produce astonishing power from their small diameter. Alps stainless steel guide frames with Zirconium inserts deliver rugged durability. Custom ALPS machined aluminum reel seats provide total security. Casting models feature spit grip handles to maximize agility. Quickly, Cedros Coastal rods are becoming favorites of Okuma staff, as their combination of refined action, inherent power and superior handling characteristics are one we gravitate to for an ever-increasing range of applications.

Andros Speed Jig
Okuma Andros rods were developed in concert with the Andros 5II lever drag reel as a highly advanced vertical jigging platform. The reel is astonishing, and so too are the rods. In order to shed weight without losing power, Andros rods feature parabolic blanks constructed of IM-6 graphite. Each model is crafted in two-pieces with a handle ferrule connection that delivers one-piece rod performance while allowing for easy travel to worldwide destinations. Split rear grips eliminate chaffing when employing an underarm jigging stroke. The highly custom Alps machined aluminum casting reel seat is designed for use without reel clamps. A custom locking nut secures the reel and machined finger grooves provide a positive and ergonomic grip. Completed with Alps 316-SS guide frames with Zirconium inserts, Andros rods maximize opportunities suitable for up to 50-pound braid.
