VIP Boat Rental Fishing Tips: “Using Spinning Tackle on Claytor Lake”
All spinning reels are fitted with anti-reverse locking– a vital part of the mechanism. This is usually fixed in such a way that a lever or a button can be moved to put the reel in and out of anti reverse function.
For such an important functioning part of spinning, there is an amazing number of skilled fishermen who never seem to grasp what this device is intended to do while fishing on one of our Claytor Lake boat rentals. Yet the direct system, which we will deal with next, the anti-reverse plays one of the more important roles in spinning techniques. When on, this lever prevents the reel handles from being turned backward by the pull on the line. It is usually formed in a ratchet/dog combination that operates against the revolving helsing, although it can be also be used against the main gear on the main gear shaft. I keep all my spinning reels and lock at all times, so that I never get caught and am always ready for immediate action while fishing on one of our Claytor Lake boat rentals.
Let us take a look at the reason for this and why it is so necessary to fully understand the anti-reverse function. Let us take as an example a fishing expedition for carp, those massive bronze battlers that can spend 3 to 4 hours making up their minds to take the bait, then in a snap decision, while you are relaxed and possibly not paying attention, will pick up the cornmeal ball and light up their afterburners while fishing on one of our Claytor Lake boat rentals. You make a cast, get hold of the rod handle, missing the reel completely, and stagger up slashing the tip back in a fast strike.
The fish is hooked, he takes off and line burns off the spool as the slipping drive allows it to peel off quickly. On your feet, you tuck the rod in tightly, raise the rod onto a fighting turn and place your right hand in the correct position with your fingers on each side of the real post. Since the anti-reverse lock was on, there is no problem at all; you met the fish on a taut line, set the hook, and the drag slept perfectly, preventing a break. If the lock had not been set, if you ground without getting hold of the real handles, the speeding carp would have shown it’s full strength against your limp tackle while fishing on one of our Claytor Lake boat rentals.
The reel handles would have galloped around, spinning spelling line in shuttering coils, the fish would have felt this check, spat out the bait and hook, and left you with cuss words on your lips and a horrible tangle of line in a series of coils around the reel. Now, because you did it correctly and have the lock set on, you stand with a bucking Rod held firmly in your right hand, and, with your left hand resting lightly on the reel, you wait for the chance to start pumping against the fight of the bronze of battler while fishing on one of our Claytor Lake boat rentals.
