Looking for lead core reel recommendations

    I am looking for recommendations for a reel that can hold 10 full colours of lead core plus backing. I troll for Lake Trout, no downriggers, lake is over 100ft deep in spots. Definitely on low end of budget. I’m currently using a Shimano mooching reel, looking to change it up, maybe a levelwind. Any suggestions?

    Okuma cv-55 will hold 10 colors and for the money is a pretty nice reel with a decent drag. There are definetily cheaper options but usually the drags are junk. This reel is used on lake michigan for by alot of fisherman.
