The backlash from hell

Recommended Posts

Spent the better part of two nights at work trying to pick it out.  Just wasn't possible.  Ended up having to take a knife to the spool.

That's what happens when you catch TheBeast's rod in the back of the boat.   ;D

Is that the best you can do? ;D

When I screw up that bad, I remove the spool from the reel. It makes line removal a lot easier.

I made my first true bird's next a few weeks ago with a side arm cast in which my lure smacked the back of a chair from the shore. The treble dug into the fabric of the chair and the next sound was thrrruppp! My thumb didn't even have a chance to stop it. :-[ It made your nest look quite manageable. ;)

The picture doesn't really do it justice.  Plus that was right before I gave up on picking it out and decided to start cutting.

d**n shame too as I had just put that line on the reel.  Oh well, at least CXX is cheap.

I hear you. I had fresh 10# suffix siege on my reel. Siege is cheap too.

I've spent the last two nights picking one out of my Sol. I deserved this one though. I was casting a wacky rigged senko on a Jackall weedless wacky jig head, so the reel was set-up pretty wide open.

I had already caught one fish and shoulda replaced the senko; I figured nah, one more fish. As soon as I started a sharp cast the senko flew off, and resulted in an out-of-commission Sol.

Unfortunately Gamma Co-poly isn't cheap.

A couple of weeks ago, I did one of my famous two handed, side arm power casts into a tree about 10 feet from the boat. Power Pro is hard to cut off of the spool. LOL

It happens to me, too.

Usually when I am casting and hit the boat's windshield, another rod, or a bush/tree.

This is why I take extra baitcasters and spinning reels with me to switch out while fishing and then remove the backlash when I get home.

Ha Ha... ;D

I haven't had one like that in a few years. But seeing that one I wouldn't have even tried to pick it out, just remove the spool and start cutting....

Tight Lines!!!!

That's what happens when you catch TheBeast's rod in the back of the boat.

Even better was it was dark and I thought I had gotten a strike and set the hook.

Yikes  ;)  It never ceases to amaze me how easily fishing line can get wrapped up. I have had to hack many of spools over the years. It really sucks when you are on a hot bite too.  :'(

LOL so true i let someone else use my reel for a minute and they got a huge backlash when the bite was on , by the time i picked it out the spinnerbait bite was done and shortly after the line guide insert on the reel popped out ;)
