Perfect for Steel...

My first Steelhead reel was a Mitchell 300...still have it.
Like was said; grease it up and let her fly...great reel and you can't beat the price.

Your welcome. If you want more of those reels there's a store in Sweethome that had a bunch of them last year. I'm sure they still have them. There was probably at least 20 of them. They were selling them for 20 to 30 dollars apiece.

I've used 3 variations of the Mitchell 300, for many types of fish including summer run steelies. They work great for that! Depending on what type of line you use, you can likely use it for Winter fish too!

Good luck!
