Loosen Drag for Storage. Between fishing trips store each reel with its drag loosened. If you leave the drag tightened the drag washers are compressed and you could end up with a jerky or ineffective drag. Reduced pressure on the drag washers helps them last longer in better condition.
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."
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.
