How to throw a baitcasting reel?

Throwing a baitcasting reel seems to be an easy task. However, there are several tips for you to accomplish it more effectively after you have insights into the way to adjust a baitcasting reel through my article at

To begin with, you should be aware of some important factors  to avoid rebound (or backlash) of the baitcasting reel in which the line slips out of the reel when the reel revolves faster. Reducing the rebound, your fishing will be more enjoyable.

For the very loose reel:

If you cast for the first time, you should have 2 brakes out or more. For the reel with a dial rather than brakes, you should set the highest status.

Then you should make the tension and the drag tighter.

For the very light bait:

If you do fishing at the first time, you had better choose the baits that weigh more than 1/2 oz. And then, when you get used to the fishing techniques, you can reduce the weight little by little.

Also, if you use the dense bait which tend to catch wind and the reel is at high risk of rebound, you should tie some object on it such as a potato. By that way, you can throw the line farther.

For the very heavy rod:

The more flexible the rod, the easier for the reel to avoid blacklash.. You had better choose a rod with medium action rather than one with heavy action because the heavy weight will make it harder for you to do the throwing task. If you already own a heavy rod, you should loosen the line about 2 feet to cast better.

If the wind is trong:

If the wind is strong, the bait will be slowed down easily. You may be faced with backlash because the strong wind will make the reel spin faster while the bait cannot keep up with it.

If you are not a well-experienced fisher, you’d better avoid the strong wind. Otherwise, you have a technique that you keep your thumb on the reel.

Deal with the too late release:

In general, most people tend to release too late, causeing the rebound because the reel spins while the bait stop moving.

Techniques to throw a baitcasting reel:

– Use your thumb to hold the spool and hit the release button at the same time, then use both hands to pull the rod over your shoulders

Next, try to cast the reel to the sky and keep the spool spinning by putting your thumb on the spool.

When you are sure that the backlash doesn’t happen, you should repeat the procedure until the task get perfect.

– Get down the timing and do the follow-through, stop pointing to the sky and point towards the bait and get more casts. Then, you just do the task by your wrist through a belt around it to be more secured

– If you can do overhand casting, you should master the technique of casting with side-arm. However, you have to be parallel with the water and use the pitching and flipping method.

How to catch fish

In order to enjoy your fishing, besides purchasing the best baitcasting reel which you can refer at the website, there are also several must-know techniques as follow

catch a fish

Tie your hook on your line.

It is the most important technique you should know.

Tie theline-end to the hook, then take 4-6 rounds of line around the hook.

Put the line-end through the loop and make it tight. Use a spit to lubricate the line.

 Attach your sinkers and bobbers.

 Remember that the place that the fish are most likely to be hunted is some iches above the water floor. Thus, you should tie the sinkers and the bobbers to the line at the position of approximately 12 inches above the bait.

If you go fishing at the first time, you should use a large bobber so that you can esily see it and can discover the “eating” of the fish more quickly.

Bait your hook

In order to keep the bait securely on the hook, you should put the bait through the hook for many times. You should start with about one-third away from bait bottom

Then, you should bend the bait towards the hook and get the worm jammed through the hook for about 2 to 3 times to make it stick to the hook more stronger.

Quietly waiting for the fish to be stuck to the hook:

 You can lure the fish that the bait is still alive by your hand moving. Or, if you have more time, you can just sit down and wait quietly. The most important advice is that you should let it still for some time before reeling back.

Some people find it boring if they just sit still. Thus, they tend to make noise by listening to the radio or some music or talk to a friend, etc. Doing that will harm your fishing result because the fish – hearing the strange sound around you- will not approach the bait no matter how attractive it is.

There are some ways for you to discover when the fish is stuck to the hook, so that you don’t lose the fish when “falling asleep”. You can watch or touch the loose line, or make a connection between the rod and your belt. Be careful that the connection can make you difficult to move when you pull the rod.

You shouldn’t wait too long because it’s a waste of time. In that case, you can change to other places to have higher opportunity to have fish.


Pump and lift the rod to pull the fish in when you are reeling

If the fish is too small, you can pull in the fish by the reel. Otherwise, you should use your arms to make it towards you.

Avoid loosing the line because you may be at high risk of losing the fish. Always keep the line tense to ensure that the fish is still stuck in the hook.

Adjust the line drag by your hand pulling. A constant line pressure will be more likely to tire the fish. Steering the fish by using the rod is also advisable.

Use a net to catch your fish

You should have your partner to use the net for catching the fish once you have reeled it. Be careful when release the moth of the fish from the hook because the spines of the fish and the hook isquite sharp and can make your hand bleeding.
