General Fishing Tips / Re: Bouncing Balls 4 butts

Cool and thanks. Is my angle a symptom of going to fast, not enough weight, or scope / line out?

Wow! Out side of wat to many variables, I was figuring weights in excess of 10oz. I've fished 8-10 at OP drifting in15-20'+-
Typically fishing 30lb braid, single 6" flasher tandem hook rig on 6-10" bait.
Fishing at 50'+ at 1-2mph slow paddle w/ 17oz my line is at maybe at 45*+  catching lings and rock fish but not confident on the bounce. I play with my scope but figure I need more weight.

These guys must have had been competing. They both lost!

What wt. / oz balls or torpedoes etc and speed. Are you bouncing when trolling and or drifting for butts? Mind you this to keep your line at relatively 90*

Craftsmen's Corner / Shimano TLD 10 - Drag jerky jerky
« on: April 18, 2020, 08:53:58 PM »
So I asked a question previously regarding free spooling and got the answer now as I get ready to head out, and test the drag, the drag is very jerky.  Any thoughts recommendations or experiences with the rebuild / service. 

FYI I was not able to rebuild the actual spool itself, I dis not have the tool to do dissemble.

Not much at all rolled up a PC of heavy Emery paper and stuck it in the shaft Hole then put s small screwdriver in and spun it checked it with the spool and repeated Untill it went in freely. I might have over done it a little but not by much definitely take your time and check frequently The graphite is easily removed. Also check that the shaft key is not your issue first by removing it and the checking the shaft / hole interface (ha ha shaft/hole interface ha ha). If it is the key try installing it 180* if that dose not work back to the sand paper.
Good luck!

That was it! Working great now.  I found the same repair on another site but the symptoms were not explained as well.
Thanks again!

Just tried the link and did a search, my same issue came right up! Gonna give it a try and report back.
FYI could be the graphite frame swelled tightening up the shaft / key hole.
Its like a finger in a butt hole! TIGHT!

Hey all, also posted on another site but I'm having issue with my TLD 10. I did a service on it (first time for me on a used reel) and now when I shift from free spool to drag, I cant get it to drop back into free spool unless I push the drag adjustment knob in or push the spool in.  Kinda weird.  Any one have experiance working on this reel?

 :smt006 Since you asked.....
I've moved on from the stearing as I could not get the ball and socket connector i was looking for from my hardware store.
What prompted the post was I was looking for suggestions on a DIY solution similar to the wiring of a rudder kit. After muchcontemplation, I figured to do it that way and do it right I should just buy a kit.
But I'm cheep and there expensive so... stick and joint tomorrow I hope to find my parts at the auto shop.
This had been a project for a while I got the yak and motor together. The motor control was fried when I bought it so didn't know if it even worked. Well pulling parts off another trolling motor I have, I got the motornrunning.nso I bought another speed control and eventually figured out the phasing? Kind of a pain in the ass.  But the hardest part was building a housing for the controler.it I think it came out good.
I diddent like how loose the stearing was with how the shaft was connected to the motor bracket janky set up from the factory, kinda just fit thru an over sized hole in rec. tubing sonic fit some PP blocks around it and added springs so I could adjust how tight the steering is.
Then I customized some knobs for.mounting the motor to the yak, ran the wires now I've got.to get a disconnect for the battery box (suggestions?) And rig the steering arm.
I'm home schooling tomorrow so my girls are gonna get some shop time in with dad.
Yeah buddy!
Cant wait to run out of juice out father than I wanted to paddle in th we first place

Right on thanks, I believe I picked something up from you a couple of years ago when I was just starting maybe crab trap.  Anyways thanks man!
I appreciate it

I've got lexa 300HS on.my heavy swim bait rod. Great reel, but the physical size of it is a bit large for my tastes to get another. Definitely a great reel.

Looking for used if something's out there.
