Quick Tip To Eliminate & Avoid Line Twists [VIDEO]
If your braid has a spiral appearance to it, then it is likely twisted up.
This can lead to wind knots and hinders your casting distance.
The first thing you want to do is make sure your lure is rigged up properly.
If your lure is not straight and rigged right, then during the retrieve it could start helicoptering and flip around which causes line twists.
To fix any twists in your line, cut the lure off the line.
Then, start your trolling motor or main engine to move in one direction while letting line off the spool.
The resistance of the water will naturally pull on the line.
Usually, the entire spool won’t be affected, just the first 50 yards or so will be impacted.
Another reason this helps is if the line was already too tight on the spool to begin with.
Let’s say you’ve caught a ton of BIG fish and the line has dug into itself on the spool, this will help loosen the line and shift it on the spool to lay evenly.
If your line is stuck on the spool, then you won’t cast as far as normal.
Once you’ve let out enough line, start reeling and that will eliminate any twists or wraps along the line.
When the end of your line is getting close to the rod is when you’ll feel the least resistance.
At that point, you should use your fingers to place some resistance on the line as you continue reeling.
You’ll notice the line will appear flat and symmetrical.
The last step is to tie on your lure and get back to fishing!!
