Useful to have when fishing at Barden Lake:

Swim Stim is not only a more powerful and effective attractant than usual baits, such as traditional biscuit meal or breadcrumb based groundbaits and trout pellets, but it also makes it a perfectly balanced fish friendly product.

The Black Magic Feeder 650 is an example of a specialist reel packed with features specifically for medium to long range feeder fishing.
