One of the most anticipated reels of the year is getting a chance to prove itself in Florida’s tough saltwater environment. The Osprey by Florida Fishing Products is the latest reel in the 3000 and 4000 reel class, designed by veteran tournament fishermen and inshore enthusiasts, Ty Nelson & Tim Sommer.
Fishing Enthusiast, Michael Collazo is an avid fisherman out of Port Saint Lucie, Florida where snook, redfish and trout abound.
A recent trip found Michael and the FFP Osprey doing battle against gator trout, redfish and snook. Those Port St. Lucie love the DOA shrimp with Michael sore-lipping a sweet gator trout on the classic DOA shrimp in 425 watermelon color + about 10 snook. His buddy Nick caught 10+ snook as well andended the day with a nice red all on the DOA shrimp as well.
Michael had this to say about the Florida Fishing Product new Osprey reel, “The reel is light and smooth as can be, with a great drag system. Line lay is also very good on it so I get good distance in my casts and there’s no wind knots. It’s really well built and it’s a sweet looking reel!”
Nice work, guys! For more information on the Osprey Reel, visit Florida Fishing Products.
