Ardent Reel Review – Sept 2007

You want to try something new in a spinning reel? The U. S. Reel company has invented a superb spinning reel with many features and benefits that can make your fishing experience outstanding! These reels are up to 50% lighter when they are compared to other spinning reels with similar spool diameters. They are made of super light carbon fiber components which is the same material used in the B-2 Stealth bomber, plus its as strong as it is light. If you want to cast a long distance with accuracy, this is the reel for you. Casting distance is one of its defining features because of the wide spool. It will out cast any other spinning reel with a “long-nose”.

When I was a kid, 50 years ago, I started fishing with an old baitcasting reel that belonged to my father. Talk about getting used to using a baitcaster without all the new technology. No buttons, no ball bearings and only your thumb to stop the line from a huge backlash. Baitcasting reels are a whole lot easier to use today yet they still can get some ugly backlashes in them.

The easiest way to fish for them is by using a medium action spinning rid equipped with the appropriate Baitcasting reels. Neither the rod nor the reel need be expensive ones. You will spool the reel with 4 or 6-pound test line and tie a number 8 or even a number 10 hook on it. About two feet above the hook, attach a bobber. Next, bait your hook with some grubs or a minnow and cast it out. When the bobber sinks down, you know you have the first of hopefully many panfish.

Let’s start with tying the line to the reel spool this is a simple process so keep it that way. Just tie a simple over hand single knot to the end of your line and pull it tight. Now put two wraps of line around the reel spool and again tie a simple over hand knot and pull the line tight. The knot you tied to the end of your line will snug up against the knot you just tied on the spool and will tighten as you pull on the line. Then you can trim the excess line which is left behind the first knot and you are ready to start filling the reel.

Step#1 LIFT the jig with a slight pop of the rod tip, then let the jig sink all the way to the bottom. How much of a “pop” will depend on how the fish are reacting the day you are fishing. If the fishing is real slow, and the fish are not moving much then try a very slow retrieve.

The simplest form of a fishing tackle use to be a fishing line attached with a pole. To make it more simpler, kids usually wrap a fishing line in a soda can and make that their tackle. In most of the common cases a fishing-pole is made of cane, bamboo or any branch of a tree. With such a kind of pole you can fish near the banks of a river. You can attach small sinkers like split shot to go down in the water. And you can also use bobbers to float on the water with your tackle. As a fishing tackle is a collective name of rods and reels that an angler uses so according to their usage these tackles are broadly come under four categories: spin-cast, spinning, bait-cast, and fly. You need to remember that you need to use different kind of rod for each style. Lets discuss these styles in brief.

What happens when the line gets tangled up and you have to cut it? What if you catch a larger size fish than you expected and it breaks your line? You always need extra fishing line with you when you go crappie fishing, just in case.
