Boca Bearings Fishing Newsletter: Issue 22

A backlash that requires lots of picking and cutting of line is one of the most frustrating situations in bass fishing.

The frustrating situation becomes compounded when an angler is just learning how to use a baitcast reel while on a fishing trip. In some extreme cases, these anglers get so exasperated with the baitcaster that they never use one again.

By giving up on a baitcast reel, novices are missing out on the most effective tool for presenting their lures to bass. “It is so much easier feathering your lure and getting accuracy and distance,” says Bassmaster Elite Series competitor Pete Ponds. “All three of those factors make the baitcaster more appealing than the spinning reel. There are times for spinning reels and you can feather them as well but distance and accuracy are two very important elements of the cast and with the baitcaster I feel like I can achieve both better than I can with the spinning reel.”

Catch Of The Month

Largemouth Bass : Where did you catch it? Pond near Middlesex NC What did you catch it with? Hand tied deer hair diving bass bug fly I was taken to this pond by my old boss and fished it a few times with light fly rods. I decided to come back with one of my friends and bring my 8wt. I saw some fish busting on the surface and tied on one of my deerhair diver flies that I tied the night before. I cast it at a boil about 35' off the bank...made 2 strips of the fly line and BOOM.
