Check out the following basic guidelines you can use whether you prefer chasing farm-pond panfish or saltwater marlins. By practicing these tips your reels will stay in tip-top shape much longer and you can be confident your tackle will handle anything a fish dishes out.
Outside of situations like those just keep an eye on your line and change it out when it fades frays or doesn′t feel as supple as it was when new. Like maintaining a reel keeping good-quality fishing line on your reels is key to your success. Tatty line might land a panfish or small bass without problem only to break when you set the hook in that fish of a lifetime.
Before rinsing tighten down the drags especially on spinning reels. This will help keep water from seeping inside. Hold spinning reels upside down with the drag toward the ground when rinsing giving water even less of an opportunity to get inside the reel.
Remove or secure your fishing line before you remove the spool. "Either strip all the line off the spool or secure it with masking tape before you remove the spool from the reel. If you don't the line will get caught between the spool and the frame and make removal very difficult."
Oil bearings. "Clean bearings with lighter fluid. That'll remove all the dirt and grunge from them. After they're cleaned make sure they spin. That's very important because it'll tell you they're clean. Oil them with TG's Rocket Fuel — medium viscosity — one drop per bearing. Again use a toothpick."
