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.

Degrease Stiff Reels. If you purchased a new fishing reel and found it a little stiff when casting take it apart and see if you need to remove some of the grease on the gears. Old reels work better too if you clean out gummed-up grease and replace it with a fresh coating of light lubricant. A solvent like Ardent Reel Kleen or isopropyl rubbing alcohol works great to loosen up all grease. A Q-Tip or soft cloth can be used for application.

It′s not unusual to see their tackle banging around in the back of a pickup going down a dusty road or stored in a boat locker without being washed after a day fishing in saltwater. I often see reels spooled improperly drags set incorrectly and precious fishing days ruined because a reel wouldn′t cast right.

Lubrication is an essential part of spinning reel maintenance. Use the oil that came with the reel or a quality after-market brand. Ball bearings and metal bushings tend to collect water and salt leading to corrosion and seizure if not oiled. It′s difficult to crank in a fish if the handle won′t turn. A little oil goes a long way though. Too much is almost as bad as not enough so apply sparingly.

Grease gears. "Apply grease to the bottom of the teeth not the top. Applying grease to the tops of the teeth will cause the gears to throw the grease everywhere. You want it in the bottom. Also don't slop the grease all over the place; a light coating is all you need. We apply it with a toothpick or a small brush."
