Salt water fishing?

Bear with me here now. Is there a more popular time to salt water fish over say another time of the year?
Like i wouldn't sell a snow blower in July, i'd wait till the winter.
Is there such a thing as prime salt water fishing season? I have a reel I want to sell and I want to sell it at the right time. Someone told me mid April to unload it on Ebay, but I have my doubts on what he says.

i would say probably spring-early summer would be best. Thats when all the winter hibernators come out looking to buy stuff. If you wait to long they will already have all they want. I am speaking for my side of the way south where water barely gets into the 50's. What kind of reel? I may be interested.

It's ALWAYS prime saltwater fishing somewhere around the country (including Hawai'i & Alaska). The beauty of ebay is that you're marketing to the whole country. If you don't have a problem shipping to South Florida, Gulf Coast States, California, or Hawai'i, then there is demand 365 days per year.

Keep us posted on the item #.
That reel is at least 11 years old.
$150 sound pretty steep considering the replacement 7500SS can be had new, with a rod for less.
There may be a few out there that can appreciate the tank-like toughness of the old 750SS
