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."
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.
After cleaning components are inspected before reassembly. If a part won′t endure a complete season it needs to be replaced. Items subject to normal wear and tear like plastic drag knobs are checked for stress cracks. Drag washers typically last a couple of years depending on use; a shiny or worn one needs to be replaced immediately. Technicians also know whether to lube the drag washers. Certain drag material requires lubricants to work properly while others are designed to stay dry and grease-free. Keep your spinners spinning smoothly and they won′t let you down when that drag starts screaming.
When you′re on a hot bite or a long-planned trip the worst thing that could happen is tackle failure. Losing a great catch due to something that could have been prevented is annoying. Avoid that problem by maintaining and regularly servicing your spinning reels and you′ll enjoy years of dependable use. Here are some steps to keep those reels in good working order.
Baitcasting Reels: These reels work with the weight of your bait or lure as it pulls on the line and turns the spool. They are typically preferred by more experienced anglers especially when using heavier lures and lines for large game fish. Handles are usually located on the right-hand side of the reel. Most baitcasting reels incorporate a drag system which adjusts the resistance or drag on your spool and controls the level of resistance needed to pull the right length of line off the spool many anglers prefer baitcasting reels for larger stronger game fish like musky or smallmouth bass particularly if they′ll be out on the water for an extended period of time. Many saltwater anglers also use baitcasting reels for species like striped bass some baitcasting reels come in one-piece designs that lessen the corrosive effects of saltwater.
