    Hi all I'm off out for a few hours tomorrow night and I'm taking My new penn battle out to try and get into this fixed spool with braid carry on. the lads who I will be fishing with fixed spool so no doubt they will keep me right I'm just wondering if anyone else has any info/personal experiences that could help.

    make sure you have a glove or finger stall or something to protect your finger when casting. I forgot mine last time and regretted it :eek: :) k,nell... it didn't half sting :'(

    Just remember to take care of your line so to reduce chances of wind knots :)

    If you snap off your lead or rig always wind the line back under tension between your fingers ;)

    Most wind knots are caused by loose loops being dragged off the spool prematurely :p

    Also don't overfill your spool, 3mm below the lip should be fine, and when you fill the reel clamp the line spool in a vice and try and wind it on under a good bit of tension, like say as much as retrieving a fish :)

    try and fish without too much tension on the line if possible ( difficult in a bit of sea ) and when you get a bite try and give it a bit of slack and let the bite develop, for a 1st timer with braid it can be a shock how vicious some of the bites can be even from mops !!

    even a pouting looks like a big cod bite on mono just wait untill you hook that big one on braid you nearly get your arms pulled out of the sockets when they shake their head :)
