Newb at baitcasting

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone, i am a young angler, i have only been fishing for a few years i was only used cheap spincast reels. i started to get better and last year my dad got me a spinning reel. I saw and read that baitcasting reels are more accurate and more efficient. so i went to basspro.com and got a nice baitcasting reel. i got a pole and put line on it and i tried it out. i go my line tangled every time and i kept having to fix it and that takes too long.

i need some tips from more Experienced anglers on how to learn to use my new reel. ;)

Lots of Luck every thing takes time ;)

Yea read the sticky and practice, practice and practice.  Try practicing in the backyard so your only worried about casting not catching fish.  Also try starting casting with a sidearm cast not overhand.  What model Baitcaster do you have?
