Hi all. It’s been a while. I started law school in august, so with full time job, evening classes, and son’s baseball I’ve been super busy.
Only fished once since the beginning of August.
Anyway, I hate Braid and last spring stripped any Braid I had off my casting reels. I lost a lot of lures when my line would catch in the spool for no reason and snap my knot. I watched two jackhammers fly off into oblivion and that was enough.
However, I want to try again for a pitching/frog setup I put together.
I’m thinking now maybe I had loose line on the spool or something.
How should I put my line on? I’ve got 50lb pp. Should I use mono backing? Electrical tape? Do y’all put It on as tight as possible?
