Why is my reel jumping?
The biggest culprit for why your fishing line unravels and falls off the spool is there simply isn’t enough space for it in the first place. Unless you are using a reel designed for saltwater, most spinning reels aren’t able to handle as much or as heavy of fishing line as baitcasters.
Why does my reel keep spinning?
Many modern fishing reels use anti-reverse clutches or mechanisms that allow the reel to spin both ways. There are times when these devices get jostled, causing it to turn in one way only, such as backward. Repairing this is done by freeing the clutch and allowing it to move freely once again.

How do you get kinks out of a fishing line?
“I close the spool right toward the end (of the line) and then just pull it behind the boat where it’s under tension for five to 10 minutes, and it helps a lot.” Surface tension with the water pulls the line off the spool and stretches the curly cues out, but Champagne said boat speed is key.
Why is my fishing reel clicking?
It could also be that the bearing somehow got some grit in it and thats making it tick. There could also just be a loose bit of something left over from the manufacturing process thats bouncing around in the side cover and is ticking the spool.
Why does my fishing line Keep tangling?
