Red X Angler
I got my new reel yesterday and had it loaded with 10lb braid. Before I get frustrated with it can those that use braid give me some advice on using it on a Stradic 3000 reel.
If you are fishing the Red X event (which I think you are), there are lots of guys to help you with knots and such. And if you use bait and a circle hook you definitely need to cure the 'hook set' itch as you will miss the fish. Like ICM said reel it tight...I use a little side sweep with the rod as I tighten up. Braid is different, but most of us find it so superior to mono that it's on almost every reel we own. I only use mono stream fishing and crappie fishing any more.Closing the bell by hand no problem already do that. I will have to keep the setting the hook in mind as my mind set will be to set it .
The DOUBLE uni knot is what you need to attach the leader. Palomar for the lure/bait. There are other good knots but those two have always worked well for me.Great info guys that will help me a lot. Will the uni knot be good for attaching leader to main line or should I use something else.
Uni to Uni will work for attaching main line to leader but IMO there are easier and quicker knots to tie. Give me a second and I will provide a couple links to what I like to use.Great info guys that will help me a lot. Will the uni knot be good for attaching leader to main line or should I use something else.
