In the winter states, ice fishing is well underway. Fishermen are using the Shimano Sahara Spinning Reel to bring in large walleye and bass.
These reels are lightweight but strong enough to endure anything a fisherman can give it. The reel has a smooth cast and is affordable. However, when fishing on ice just remember to practice ice safety.
Some people do not like baitcasting reels because of the backlashes. However, using a baitcasting reel has advantages, once a person learns how to cast the reel. Practice is the best way to learn how to use this reel.
First, start by spooling a heavy monofilament line – 20 to 30 pound test line. The next step is to tie a heavy weight on the end of the line. Then practice releasing the line with your thumb. Lastly, try to stop the weight before it hits the ground or water.
A great advantage of using spinning reels is that they are stationary. This means, when using a spinning reel, the spool will not get tangled when you are casting. This keeps the line even, when it’s in the water. To move the line backwards you just flip the spool into the reverse position.
Attachments that many fishers use are leaders and swivels. These attachments help when you are looking to change your lures in a timely manner. These also help when you are casting your line into the water.
