Grass Rods, Reels And Braided Line!!!

Recommended Posts

I have a heavy action Kistler rod, 7'. A Pleuger Presidential baitcasting reel on it and 40lb braid. I'm trying to throw frogs over grass mats for the morning bites and am only able to cast about 20 feet away from the boat. This is driving me crazy!!!! Does anyone have any idea as to what the issue is?

check and make sure your tension knob on the side isnt too tight and that your brakes arent all the way on.. that president shouldnt have a problem throwing the braid..just do some fine tuning and you should see an improvement in casting distance

Sounds like a brake-setting issue
