Q So I just bought the Bass Pro Tourney Baitcaster Combo. When cast it I press the button and hold my finger on the spool , then release and when it hits the water, it creates a bird nest.
What can I do to fix this problem. Or what am I doing wrong and how do i do it the correct way.
A. You need to adjust your brake and tensioner properly.
It looks like this reel has a magnetic brake. Tune it to give you a manageable cast. Then adjust the tension based on the lure you are using.
