Here are some tactics to minimize wind knots when casting with spinning gear:
- Don’t make high, rainbow casts because you’re putting a lot of slack on your line.
- Use a sidearm cast keeping your lure close to the water.
- When you close the bail, close it manually.
- Get slack out of your line by raising the rod tip and reeling down.
Also, do not cast your leader knot through your guides.
Your knot will start bumping into your guides and your line can tangle more easily.
And every time you make a cast, check your spool to see if you have any line overlapping itself or crossing over the spool.
Lastly, if the wind is strong, do not cast into the wind. Save yourself from frustration!
