1) Closing The Bail
Whenever you are fishing with a spinning reel, you have to make sure you close the bail by hand and not just by reeling.
If you let the reel close the bail, you’ll get twists in the line, or the line can fall down and wrap around the spool.
It can be incredibly frustrating when you go to cast later on and there’s a mess of line on your spool.
Always close the bail by hand, and never turn the reel to close the bail.
2) Spooling Your Reels
Make sure there is tension on the line when you’re putting line onto the spool.
You want the line to be as tight and compact as possible on the spool.
This gives the line less of a chance to slip off the spool and cause a massive mess.
Most of our retrieves for inshore fishing are like the twitch-twitch-pause retrieve.
So every once in a while, cast your lure out as far as you can and give it a straight retrieve.
That way you’ll keep the line tight on the spool.
3) Manage Your Line Properly
Braided line has so many positive attributes such as it casts farther, and you can feel more strikes, among many other pros.
But one major thing anglers often overlook is that braid has to be managed and maintained.
Some braided lines also behave differently than others do.
For example, the Daiwa J-Braid x8 Grand has a tendency to shoot off the reel very fast which can cause chaos on the reel.
Sometimes a small loop will form on the edge of the reel and if you go to cast, that loop will take all the line on top of it with it resulting in a huge mess.
There are a couple of things we can do to solve this.
The first is something I mentioned earlier and that is to close the bail by hand after each cast.
The second thing you can do is give the mainline a quick tug.
That quick tug will pull the line into position where it then won’t lead to any knots or tangles.
These might sound like additional things you have to worry about that will take time out of your fishing.
But with repetition, you’ll end up not realizing you do these small little things anymore.
On top of that, this will eliminate all of those line headaches and tangles from the past.
