Time to clean and re-spool your fishing gear...
« on: January 21, 2017, 07:28:56 AM »
With hunting season over and it's a good rainy day in Georgia it's time to get the fishing tackle ready for this year. I've got 11 baitcasters and 4 spinning reels that I'm going to remove old fishing line. Then I'll take each apart and clean, oil and lube them and re-spool with new line. I'll remove all of the line on the baitcasters but my spinning reels all have braid line that I replace every other year. Braid is outstanding to use on spinning reels as the problem with line twist is eliminated. When using braid I do use a 5 to 6 foot fluorocarbon leader. I use the following knot to attach braid to fluorocarbon. The guy in the video is a little bit country but once you learn to tie this knot braid will become your best friend on a spinning reel.

he is a bit country, but better than some

it's like doing 2 fishermans knots. looks easy enough. never seen that one

I don't blend lines to often. about the only time I do is when I use mono for backing on my bait casters. I use an old farmer knot I used to retie bailing twine. I don't think it gets quite as small as this one, but it's functional. it never reaches the eyes of the rod, so no big issue

thx. i'll have to remember this next time

Love this knot use it all the time, I have switched over to braid on all my fishing rods. It's a little pricey up front. However I put backing on my reels then take a 300 yd spool of braid roll it out in the back yard, cut it in have then place 150yds on two bait casters or spinning reels. Can fish it for two years then unspool it and turn it around and the you have fresh braid for two more years. Works great on spinning reels no memory loops. I change the leader though out the year and can change the pound line whenever needed. Also found these clippers that work awesome with braid.

metal- i've never seen those before. i keep a small sturdy scissors for my braid. those super braids are tough, especially when you get to the musky weights.

With the false spring we had, already put a mess of bream in the freezer two weeks ago.     ##$%#111

70-80s had them bedding early. 

Wonder after this cold snap will they start once more?   ##$%#1119   :2)

Yari tackle warehouse bass pro and academy sell them. Cut braid like butter with one clip. There are two different versions I believe this cuts up to 50 lb braid. And the larger gets into saltwater size braid.
