Proper Brake Adjustment Equals Fewer Backlashes. You′ll make more accurate casts with fewer backlashes if you adjust your baitcasting reel′s mechanical brake according to the weight of the lure you′re casting. Look for the brake adjustment knob on the side-plate beneath the handle. With the lure attached to your line depress the free-spool button while lightly thumbing the line. When the brake knob is properly adjusted the lure should descend slowly to the ground and stop without any spool overrun. If the lure falls too quickly or slowly adjust the brake knob to compensate.
Spincast Reels: With these reels the line comes off the top of the spool while casting. The spool which runs parallel with the rod remains enclosed by a cover that features a port where the end of your fishing line exits the reel. The spool remains stationary until you use a thumb button to cast. As you release the button your bait or lure will propel your line. The ease of spincast reels makes them a good choice for novices. They′re reliable and lack complexity.
Fill Your Reel Just Right. When using a baitcasting reel filling the spool to 90 percent capacity is recommended. This optimizes casting performance. Too much line is likely to increase the chance of backlash while not enough limits casting distance. For spinning reels a good rule of thumb is to fill the spool until there′s at least 1/8 inch of room from the line to the edge of the spool lip. That will let you use the most line capacity without causing line to spring off the spool and form tangles. The 1/8-inch rule applies to spincast reels too but you′ll have to remove the reel′s front cover so you can check the amount of line on the spool.
Freshwater reels are for use around inland lakes streams and rivers while saltwater reels are for large bodies of water including oceans and bays. Reels come in three basic styles: casting spinning and fly fishing. Whether you′re after a largemouth bass or a wiley trout you should understand the way your fishing reel works.
After cleaning wipe the reel down with a rag soaked with a protective coating like Aluma Guard Reel magic or WD-40. A light coating of liquid furniture polish will also work. Be careful to avoid contact with the line or handle grips.
