How to Use Best Baitcasting Reel

by Ben Joe Digital Marketer
Fishing with baitcasting reels can be very irritating for the first time. There are some things that you will need to know before attempting to fish with one of these reels. However, once you learn them, you will see why they are becoming so popular. Baitcasting reels were initially used in saltwater fishing. They're designed for catching bigger fish like a marlin; but anglers started to use them in the freshwater lakes, especially, for largemouth bass and other big game fish.

Casting is more critical with baitcasters. Don't jerk your rod are whip it; this will cause your lure to travel slower than your line off the spool and leads to the dreadful " Backlash." If you don't know what backlash is, it is simply when your spool over feeds and your line becomes a tangled mess. This is a common occurrence with baitcasters and the biggest complaint. With the proper technique you can avoid these most of the time. Your thumb is used as your brake against the spool when casting. You simply press the lever down with your thumb and keep your thumb on the spool to keep your lure from free falling. Then with a nice smooth motion, cast, and when your bait hits the water, press your thumb against the spool again to prevent backlash or overfeeding. You might even try pressing your thumb against the spool before your lure even hits the water.

You have to set your brake to your lure. This is the knob on the same side as your handle right next to the star-- the star is your drag. You will want to press the casting lever on your reel and let your lure free fall, once the lure hits the water or ground, the spool should stop spinning, if it doesn't, tighten your break.
