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!

    The drag has nothing to do with cast control- you mean to say "cast control tensioner".

Keep thumb on spool, Put in free spool cast smoothly and release thumb at about 45*. Look at aim point following line down. Thumb spool IMMEDIATELY line hits water.

What lb test fishing line does the 112 Oceancity fishing reel take ?


Is this the vintage 112 casting reel?.. You can use almost any size line that the reel will comfortably handle... too small and you might lose fish..and take miles of line to fill..... and .. too big and the reel will not function efficiently..its almost a judgement call.. use common sense..If you need a very small line.. you should use a "backer" to keep from using 1000's of feet of line to fill the spool..... and .. If you need a very heavy line... maybe a bigger reel is in the future... hope this helps..

How do I get my zebco to retrieve the line


Your reel has pickup pins on the spool that will guide the line onto the spool when you reel in.
Try holding gentle tension on the slack line just above your reel and start reeling in. If this does not work then remove the top cover of the reel and look to see if the line is tangled up on the inside around the center shaft underneath the pickup pin cover.
if this is the case, simply unscrew the pickup pin cover from the center shaft. It will be on the tight. Remove the tangled line and reassemble.

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 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

Think it may be a line tension problem. every


Wow, I can't believe that. That reel is very simple and shouldn't do that. I would guess that it's a problem with the line. Usually a real like that comes with line. Sometimes line is bad and it's very twisted due to being the last on the spool before it's put on your reel. I would suggest you buy some quality line, like Trilene or Stren and use about 6 lb test. I like the limp kind (read the box and it will tell you what type you are buying). Limp line means fewer twisting/tangling problems. Good luck. Alley

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.
