Shimano ultra lite reel problems

6 posts in this topic

I have a AXUL-S Shmano reel that of this year I'm having fits with. When I'm jig fishing, using 1/8 oz jigs or less, after a period of time casting the line flies off the reel all twisted up. I'm using mostly round head jigs with either tube bodies or twister tails and have not had line twisting like this before. Short of deep sixing the reel any thoughts or ideas will be appreciated! Thanks, Mike.

If your verital jigging your jig will sprial,use a leader with a swivel.

check to make sure your roller on the reel is working, and then put a swivel a foot or to above your jig. i wouldn't use a leader unless you have to worry about being bitten off. del

i for got!! if you close your bail by hand instead of closing it by turning the handle, you can avoid some twisting too. del

the idea of a swivel a foot or so above sounds like a good answer, I'll check the roller. Thanks all!!

    •   That's basically what Ryan tried to do with the last bill...authored behind closed doors.   That all worked out well....
    • Just make them pass it before they see it
    •   Democrats have wanted a single payer system from the start, but they don't have the power to pull it off.   The elderly, the healthcare providers and the medical profession are the drivers of the legislation, and they don't want single payer either, since they have already seen what has happened to Medicare coverage.

    • Same here. And look how well twetter is working for da prez!!
    • Facebook is where it's at...no thanks...
    • All forums have a certain shelf life. There is only so long that the debate over Ford/ Chevy, Vex/Marcin. Eskimo/ Strike master, Ice Castle / Yeti can keep your attention. After a while most just slip away. New people are using social apps more that the old forum formats and that is that. The only thing saving silly town is that politics is the gift that keeps on giving. 
    • Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham is among GOP leaders saying Republicans and Democrats now need to work together on a fix. Over the weekend, Rep. Betty McCollum and Sen. Al Franken – both Democrats — said they agreed with Graham. “That is what we need to do,” Franken said on WCCO Sunday Morning. “Speaker Ryan said at the end of this process that the Affordable Care Act is the the law of the land. We need to address what’s wrong with the Affordable Care act, what isn’t working.” Immediately after pulling the bill, Trump said he would be willing to work with Democrats on health care.     Too big to fail.....deja vu
