If you′ll be stowing your rods and reels for a couple of months – in winter for example – strip the line and leave it off until just prior to your first trip of the new season. That way you′ll know you are starting with fresh line when you begin again.
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.
Proper Lubrication. Proper reel maintenance includes lubricating all moving parts such as bearings spool spindles and gears. You should lubricate lightly however and do not use heavy oil or grease. These can gum up or leave a residue that can inhibit movement of the bearings and other close-tolerance parts. Fine light lubricants such as Rem Oil or Blakemore′s Reel Magic Lubricant are excellent choices. Despite advice you may get to the contrary do not use WD-40 or Vaseline to lubricate any of your reel parts. These work well for many applications but they′re not good for reels. Most manufacturers recommend that you re-lubricate your reel on at least a monthly basis – more often with heavy use. At the very least lubricate everything once during each season you′ll be fishing.
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."
After a day of fishing rinse each of your reels with fresh water and allow to dry. Don′t use a spray nozzle to do this however. High-pressure water can force sand dirt and salt into the reel. Use light pressure straight from the hose.
