  • Tips

    • Casting Common mistake with casting an open face spinning reel..... holding line too far down the finger. use 'ball' of fingertip.

    • Casting common mistake: double hung lures should not be whipped. carefully move to back, come to full stop, look and sling it forward.

    • Common mistake: using too heavy a line. Smaller line will get you more strikes, and more fish. You can catch a big fish on small line. Just remember, he didn't get big by being stupid.

    • Don't be greedy with your spot when you cast. If everyone is targeting a small area the fish will congregate there and hopefully get into a 'feeding frenzy'.

    • Don't use a line with a lot of 'memory'. For example, if your line comes out with the shape of the spool, replace it. When replacing line,make sure the line is going on correctly. Face the top of the spool (label side) away from your reel. This will eliminate excessive twisting as you reel. Stop about 1/8 inch from the outer edge of the spool.

    • Inspect your line for frays, twists and kinks. Remove damaged line or replace it.

    • Reel drag must be set properly. (Approx. 50% of your line's breaking strength).

    • Weather tip: watch the southwest. typically storms move from the southwest.

    • Wind: 'Wind out the east, fish bite the least' does not pertain to Cododrie. West wind is the least favorable. Southeast wind is optimal. Best for water clarity.
