How To Set Your Drag For Swimbaits, Crankbaits, and Jerkbaits

Here's how to adjust your drag for a variety of baits so nothing goes wrong when that BIG BASS finally bites! Each bait requires a little different drag setting but we make it simple so anyone can adjust their gear quickly and accurately. 

Adjusting your drag is the last thing on most angler's minds. Your drag was either set months ago and you just haven't changed it, or maybe you backed it off last trip and forgot to tighten it back up. Either way, you could be headed for heartache! These quick tips are going to change the way you look at the drag on your reel. Its no longer a mundane part of your fishing day, its a key component to successfully landing every fish that bites!

Shimano Curado K Casting Reel Review | First Look Before They Even Hit The Market!

Shimano has an all-new reel releasing in conjunction with ICast! The Curado K replaces the Curado I and its packed with a ton of new features! Larger handle, smaller body, larger spool open, improved braking, and micro module gearing to give it that buttery smooth feel.  Even better, its offered in 6:1 , 7:1 , and 8:1 gear ratios in both right and left hand retrieve!

We've used Shimano Curados for years and this is the best one they've ever produced. This reel blows the previous generations away and for the same great price of $179.99 . We pushed it to the limits with aggressive frog fishing and flippin and were not disappointed! 

The reel is available for pre-sale through Tackle Warehouse with an expected ship date of July 18th, 2017. If this is a reel you're interested in be sure to get it ordered so you're in line when they arrive!

Reel Adjustment Tricks That Actually Make A Difference!

Wonder why you can't skip, flip, or make long casts? Learn how good fishermen are actually adjusting their reels. Matt explains the "traditional" method of reel adjustment but follows it up with real tips on how he tunes his reels so he can cast farther and fish cover more effectively. 

Why do the pros cast so effectively? Why can they skip and flip into tight spots but when you try you get backlash after backlash? Some of it is time on the water but some of it is reel adjustment. If you loosen everything up and learn to control the spool with your thumb you will become a much more effective fisherman.
