inevitable when learning how to throw a

baitcaster come along I'm going to show

you how to do it in a few simple steps

all right so the reason guys that you're

going to get these backlashes is most of

the time because your settings are not

correct so make sure you watch that fine

tuning video on for the bait caster but

what I'm going to do is and also if you

cast and you cast a high velocity and

your lure hits the water before you come

it or stop the spool then obviously it's

going to have revolutions and the line

turn the spool just like this alright

now what you want to do is engage the

reel and pull out again alright that

didn't free it so you do it again put

pressure on it turn it

engage the spool and pull out so now I'm


now I just came to another one alright

so engage the spool wrench down on it

while pushing pressure with your thumb

make a few revolutions and pull now you

took a few seconds you don't have to sit

there and nitpick and pick and pick and

cuss and swear fishing can be fun I
