Tips on Fishing with Spinning Reels

Fishing for bass and other species on spinning tackle seems to frustrate folks. A few simple things to consider will make spinning gear more acceptable for more anglers.

What spinning reel do you use

Preston Turner says:

love that commercial!

playdrums says:

Can you give any advise on when to use spinning equipment VS baitcasting equipment? I’ve used nothing but a spinning rig for every type of lure when bass fishing, that’s just what I grew up on and have been used to. But I see the pros rarely using a spinning rig it seems like. Are spinning rigs mainly for crankbaits, spinnerbaits, etc? Any reply would be great, as this is something that has always confused me. Oh yeah….SUBBED..Thanks!

I laughed my head off when the fish squirmed out of his hands

Tidal Gaming says:

Love the ending lol

ajlures says:

Great video! I’ve been using braid with mono and floro leaders for years with no problems for finesse and topwater spinning gear. I’ve always used a double uni to join them, what knot do you use?


Kevin Dombrowski says:

Great tip on closing the bail manually! Working at a “major outdoor retailer” it blows my mind how many customers don’t realize that this is actually the proper way to do it and that it helps eliminate twists and knots. The most expensive line in the world will get all twisted up if you snap the bail forward with the handle.

Excellent video, I am into spin for sure!

King Tragedy says:

Anyone know the name of the reel at 1:10

Jonathan .N says:

that had to be a japanese commercial at the end

Wired2Fish says:

We use the alberto or modified albright knot. It’s a smaller knot than the double uni and you can cut the tag end super short so it comes through the guides a lot better. We have a video on the alberto knot on our channel.

yanciv says:

can u do one for baitcasting.. thank you.

jpsouthchangwon says:

Best commercial!!

Wired2Fish says:

In this video I think I’m using the Pflueger President and the Abu Garcia Revo Spinning reels.

ajlures says:

Awesome! I checked out that video on the alberto knot. I will definitely give that one a try. I noticed you guys do product reviews. Would you like to try any of our products?


Block Brown says:

Like for Bass Buffet!

Tim Austin says:

Best commercial ever at the end!

Wired2Fish says:

We’re working on that one now.

Shane Songer says:

Great you taught me how to fish

Yuhan Zhang says:

The commercial at the end is funny


Why would you put such low(8lb) leader on 20lb braid?

midBama Bassin' says:

It still amazes me how many people don’t know how to properly put line ON a spinning reel. If you neglect to put the line on the correct way you are going to get line twist and loops no matter how you cast it.

Daley Fair says:

Is that okay if i use 8 pound braid with no leader on a smaller river? We are fishing for trout and walleye.

H says:

I like the last a few seconds of the film lol

fulaan1 says:

Feather your line???

Sharul Asrap Abdul Latif says:

can u suggest the best spinning reel for casting?thank you…

Fishy Tyler says:

Dat ending though

Wired2Fish says:

Most pros use baitcasters to use bigger lines and heavier baits. After about 10 pounds line gets hard to manage on spinning gear unless you use braid. So guys will go to bigger lines and bigger baits with baitcasters. For me personally I will fish senkos, shaky heads, drop shots on spinning gear and maybe small light crankbaits or jerkbaits that I fish on light line in clear water. Baitcasters I will fish just about everything else.

Liuhuayue says:

The ending was awesome. Not so much for the fish, but it’s definitely interesting to the human viewer. 😉

Shayne Michie says:

I see that commercial on WFN once and a while……amazing

Outdoors Guy says:

Okay what about spinning gear for frog fishing? Because I use 10lb mono on a mega cast spinning reel and on a diawa rod 6’6″ medium rod. But this upcoming season I’ll be doing same reel but spooled up with 50lb hi-vis powerpro with about 10-12ft of 12lb mono for the leader and shock absorption. What’s your input on that? Oh and frog choice is a 1/4 oz and the larger 1/2oz frogs hollow body.

Omar Ortega says:

What size braid would you recommend?

I Tsepkiy says:

anybody have used treasure magnet with 120kg pull power for cathing losted spoon baits ?
