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.
Proper Brake Adjustment Equals Fewer Backlashes. You′ll make more accurate casts with fewer backlashes if you adjust your baitcasting reel′s mechanical brake according to the weight of the lure you′re casting. Look for the brake adjustment knob on the side-plate beneath the handle. With the lure attached to your line depress the free-spool button while lightly thumbing the line. When the brake knob is properly adjusted the lure should descend slowly to the ground and stop without any spool overrun. If the lure falls too quickly or slowly adjust the brake knob to compensate.
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.
