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.
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.
Spinning Reels: These devices are great for beginners or novice anglers. They are simple to use and mount on the underside of a spinning rod. The handle of a spinning reel is usually located on the left-hand side instead of the right. Spinning reels can handle smaller lures and baits They commonly offer an anti-reverse mechanism a simple design you can set by letting go of the bail arm after casting. This keeps your line from spooling off when you get a bite You may prefer a skirted spool in saltwater environments. These increase line capacity allowing longer casts and reducing tangles. They also protect the inside mechanisms of the spool from salt and moisture.
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.
