What a super reel, the Okuma C-10 Cymar lives up to its reputation as a small and mighty reel. Super smooth operation, powerful multi-disc drag system available in multiple sizes at a super price.  Add the Okuma Rod CE-S-662UL-1 Ultra-Lite with the C-10 Cymar for an awesome setup. With a beautiful cork handle and this slick black reel in the saddle wow, it not only operates smoothly it looks awesome! One of my favorite setups.

What an incredible little reel. Always loved Daiwa reels and at a great price, I couldn’t resist I had to buy one myself. Since I bought a reel I added the 7ft Shakespeare Ulta Lite rod you see above, I love the rods with cork handles they look and feel so much better.  This is a great setup without having to spend a lot of money. I received both from Amazon just in time for my Hemet trip. I will put this Rod & reel to the test with the Okuma Rod and Reel I purchased above and post my findings.

If you’re going to the park or pier and you have a lot of gear a cooler, chairs, etc. You will want to get a wagon cart like this one or something close to it. Carts like this can be customized for fishing with rod holders and such to make getting to your favorite spot a breeze.
