Baitcasting is a fishing technique using artificial bait, namely by throwing artificial bait into the target area, and then the reel is rolled in a certain way so that the bait moves to attract the attention of fish. In addition to fishing in the sea, fishing can be applied in rivers or estuaries, or ponds. Just make sure you get the most suitable and specific bait caster. It is not hard to find the best baitcaster for bass here. But with the technique of throwing bait imitation (fake bait) or it is often called “lure”, after being thrown it is then pulled so that the bait moves and creates a separate force (action) that attracts fishes to grab it.
This casting technique can be applied in rivers, ponds, or river estuaries, which is the category of light casting, or it can be called casting with small size tools, both the fishing rod, the reel, and the lure are small in size. A baitcasting reel is an advanced type of reel because those who are not used to using it often experience bird’s nest or backlash when casting. The cause is mostly because the tool does not balance tackle or the casting technique is not correct. The tips are on lure weight above 5gram, position on the centrifugal brake 2 lock only. If the lure weight is quite light, then learn not to use centrifugal. Because the spool speed must be lighter for long casts. So just manual brakes (thumbs) and cast control are used. Calculate the training filling and sensitivity levels.
For beginners, you should start with the brake setting to the maximum, then drop the lure with the rod straight ahead, set the knob from the maximum then loosen the knob, then pay attention to the curve, if the lure falls slowly down it means the setting is right, but if it falls too fast it means the setting is too loose, and if the lure doesn’t fall it means the knob is still too tight.
