Becoming proficient with a bait caster reel requires more practice than a spinning or close faced reel. When spooling a bait caster with new line, it is important to install the new line correctly so that the reel will operate smoothly. Monitor the condition of the line on your reel and change the line frequently. The effects of catching fish, heat and sun will degrade the strength of your line. An incorrectly installed line may cause backlashes and tangles.
