For many years, we have been deep-dropping with electric reels off the east coast of Florida and the Bahamas, catching snapper and grouper in 300 to 1,200 feet of water. Some people caught fish for dinner and others wanted to fill their freezers. These days, you see quite a few big fish caught on electric reels; people have their pictures posted all over the internet, and some of these people are even called anglers. They show off these fish they catch on electric reels, and on rods that remain in the rod holder throughout the fight. I can understand catching a swordfish in the Gulf Stream off South Florida on an electric reel because of the extreme current, but are you really an angler? Set the drag, push the button and stand back.
