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.

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.

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.

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.

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."
