You have to release the button after you start your cast, distance,height and length of cast is determined by where you release the button inside the forward arc of your cast, just like throwing a baseball.

The line will not release when I cast


I am assuming you know at least something about fishing with a baitcast reel. If you do not, make sure you release the thumb button when you cast.
Chances are your line is either tangled or dirty on the inside. Also, the longer the line sits on the spool, the "curlier" it becomes, making it more difficult to get a good cast. I would suggest replacing your line.

If that doesn't help, then its possible that the release pin isn't releasing when the button is released. If this is the case, it is probably time for a new reel. Zebco 33's are inexpensive, and not really worth the trouble to try and repair- better to just invest in a new one.

How do I get my reel to keep from letting the line out while I'm holding down the cast button?


Hold the line with your index finger and against the rod itself. Then cast and release your hold

How do you cast the reel so the spool dosent continue to unwind after the cast


On the side of the reel there is a knob that you adjust for the spooling.As a rule of thumb you adjust it so when you have a lure on,click the release button and let it spool out,it will only drop about 4 feet.Now! tighten it a fraction.Start casting and it will not go very far.Just before the lure hits the water,you put your thumb on the spool.Hard at first and then less as you get used to it.You can then adjust the spooling knob to go a bit further every time.You use your thumb on the spool to adjust the last 10 feet of line.Use a lure with no hooks on it to practise.It's called a plug.Hope this helps and you reel in the big one's

Cant cast the pinnacle platinum plus lp 100 fishing reel more than 15 feet because the line tangles. Any suggestions?


Sounds like your drag is too loose. Best way to get used to setting a baitcaster, in my opinion, is to put a 1/2 ounce weight on the end of the line and engage the spool. The line should drop to the ground freely, but not full speed - if too fast, the spool will continue to spin and you'll get that dreaded birdsnest. If it doesn't reach the ground, you need to loosen it more. Once you have it set, keep that weight on and go practice, using the thumbing process Parorae noted in the previous answer.
They take some getting used to for sure!

Have a new Daiwa Exceler 100H reel with no paperwork, instructions or feature description. Can you help?


What do you want to know? How to set it up for first time?
1. Spool on some line (start w/mono is not familiar w/bait casters)
2. Installl reel on a rod
3. Set the mag brake to 0
4. Tighten the Cast control nut (next to the star shaped drag control) so it's tightened all the way (don't go crazy and use a lot of force, just set it to the tightest position)
5. Tie on a 3/8 - 1/2 Oz weight or lure - Lure/weight should NOT move at all when you let it go
6. SLOWLY loosen the Cast-control nut (very slowly) until the lure/weight drops slowly about 1/2 turn of the spool
7. Set the Magnetic brake to 5
8. Go practice casting and adjust cast-control and mag brake as needed until you can go without a birdsnest, and you don't ahfve to use all the much thumb control to stop the spool at the end of the cast
9. Practice, practice, practice...

This is what I got from a Daiwa Rep at the Eastern Fishing Expo this weekend in Worcester, Ma and I'll be doing exactly these steps once it warns up enough to go our and play with the new reel and rod (Quantum Energy PT Med/Hvy (6'6").
Peace,
Shepp
