For many years I have loved going out to the lakes and rivers to relax and spend a day fishing – to try my luck at catching that one trophy fish that would look great above my fireplace mantle.

I have used many different styles and types of fishing reels over the years and have several that I like and use frequently.

I would like to tell you about one fishing purchase that I made some years ago which changed my fishing experiences forever.

That purchase was the Mitchell 300 Spinning Fishing Reel.

Mitchell 300 Spinning Fishing Reel

This is still my favorite spinning reel to date, its smooth casting action has brought me many years of all weather use and landed many of my best fishing memories.

I purchased this reel with the intent to make my love for the outdoors and my love for fishing more than just a day off kind of experience.

I am an old school kind of guy and I feel that my way of doing things works well for me and if you are like me you don’t want to change things that have worked well for you for so long.

I don’t mind looking for new and better things like fishing bait, fishing rods, or better fishing spots on a good lake or even a better lake in general.

Why change things that are working out, Right?

But equally I am always looking for the best tools and equipment to make me stand out in the crowd when it comes to being a better fisherman.

This is why I have chosen to use this spinning reel for as long as I have.

Weight & Ball Bearings

The Mitchell 300 features eight super smooth Ball Bearings that provides a very light, well balanced reel – it weighs in at only 6.8 OZ. It brings a powerhouse of performance to each and every one of my fishing trips.

I am a right handed guy so this reel was perfect for me straight out of the box, however for those who prefer a left-handed reel this is also a magnificent choice. The handle easily switches to a left-handed set up with a simple adjustment knob on the side of the aluminum housing just opposite of the reels handle.

Quick Stop Anti Reverse

The extremely smooth, almost effortless retrieval system featured in this reel is a (Quick Stop Anti Reverse) system which means a smooth fast comfortable transition from casting to retrieving the best catches of the day.

This system helps to keep pressure on the line while you cast and provides a helpful smooth release of fishing line, giving the spool a super smooth allowance to deliver your bate exactly where you want it every time.

When it reaches its destination, the Quick Stop Anti Reverse system brings the spool to an immediate stop keeping the fishing line from over spilling and becoming tangled around the spool. This makes every cast a delightful experience right from the start.

Multi-Drag System

The Mitchell 300 Multi-Drag system is legendary and provides a constant drag on the line providing solid pressure when it’s needed most.

This keeps a snug pressure on the line when you attempt to reel in your trophy and helps the smooth spool to minimize the sudden snap of the line when your trophy is being reeled in.

Aluminum Body

Wrapped inside an Aluminum Body handle and spool for added strength and durability, the Mitchell 300 Spinning Fishing Reel is the best performing Spin cast reel I have used in years. Not to mention the longer I use it this reel the more comfortable it feels in my hand.

It makes little matter if you are a beginner fisherman or an old pro. If you are you are going out for a weekend fishing trip or if you are an everyday fisherman the Mitchell 300 Fishing Reel should be your reel of choice each time you head out to claim your catch of the day.


The Mitchell 300 is a valuable tool and can bring years fishing experiences to you, just like it has for me.

The reel can be purchased at Amazon for only $48. No matter where you purchase yours, I am sure you will enjoy it for years to come.

There are many fishing reels on the market today. They range in style, size, use, and of course cost.

Each reel features a variety of different traits that make them stand apart. I enjoy bass fishing and I do the bulk of my fishing from the shore line.

The equipment I choose to use while fishing helps me save money so I can continue getting out there and doing more of what I enjoy doing.

This is why I have chosen the use the Mitchell 300 Spinning Fishing Reel.

It all makes sense and I believe this is the reel I will continue to use every time I decide to go fishing.
