How To Cast Farther and Better with Baitcast Reels

Fishing Reels, Fishing Rods, and Casting Videos
Here's how you can become more accurate with baitcasting gear.

Hey folks. Glenn May, here with and on the forums the other day I saw a question on there. It said, how do I get more accuracy with a baitcasting outfit? Today I want to give you a couple of tips to show you just how to do that.

One of the primary things to keep in mind when you're casting, whether it's baitcasting or spinning is most of it's in your wrist. Almost always in your wrist. When you're casting make sure that it's just with your wrist. If you have to, take a piece of paper and put it right here between your arm and your body and hold it in place to make sure that you're just casting with your wrist.

The other thing is that you want to keep the rod in front of you. Don't bring it all the way back here and waving it all around because you have no idea where it's going to go once you let it go forward. Keep it in front of you. As a matter of fact, what I like to do is line up the rod with what I'm aiming at. That way you get it straight on exactly where you want to go. When you do that it looks something like this. It's very simple. We're not going for distance here. It's going for accuracy. It's an entirely different cast. One more time. If you want to, you can watch this video in slow motion. It's just simple. That's it. Really easy. Really simple. If you do those couple of tips, I promise you your accuracy will improve 100%. For more tips and tricks like this, visit
