SOURCE: SHIMANO FISHING REEL

The drag is set by turning the knob which secures the spool to the reel.

To cast, hold the line against the rod with index finger on right hand. Then flip the bail open which frees the line to come off the spool. The bail, when it gets to a certain point will lock open. When casting, release your finger on the line when the rod gets to 11 o'clock.

Flip the bail back by turning the reel handle -- the bail will pop back over the reel -- then you're ready to reel it in.

The bail is the wire-like device on the top of the reel.

There is probably a button/switch for turning anti-reverse on & off -- when on, this keeps the reel from turning backwards when force is applied to the line.

I think those are the highlights.

SOURCE: how do you cast the reel so the spool dosent

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

SOURCE: Cant cast the pinnacle platinum plus lp 100

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!

Depends on what type of fishing your doing. Out of the two the bait caster is the more challenging to do because you control the line going out. That is good for fishing banks, logged areas, spinner bait. If you just want to cast with bobber go with open or closed reel. Hope that helps.

How to fix Defiance 25LW that will not cast (or free spool)


Those reels are very simple, nothing too complex about them at all, sounds to me that the clutch gear is stuck not and not releasing when you try to engage it. I've had similar bait caster lock up like that when trying to cast heavier baits, what happens is the spool spins so fast that the inertia and vibration causes the reel to actually engage mid cast slamming the gears together. not good for the gears by the way. more that like the reel needs to be opened up and looked at to resolve the issue. www,darksidereelz.com for all your reel service needs

I have a shakespeare sigma fishing reel that tangles up when I cast it, any solutions


The line needs to installed on the reel as it is on the new spool when purchased. Also check spool drag. If it is a spinning reel it is important to install the string correctly and use a quality brand of string.

Tighten the drag star to expose the black ratch ring. Press the ratchet ring down towards the star drag as you turn the handle backwards to unscrew it from the crank shaft.

Penn Spin Reel will not lock after casting


On the front of the spool there is a device to turn to set the drag. Torn it tighter and tighten it until slightly below the breaking point of your fishing line. It isn't a critical adjustment, it just keeps your line from breaking while trying to land a fish.
