With or without swivel, put the rod in a holder---that way one hand cranks while the other guides the line and the boat holds the rod---believe me, it's a LOT easier......

I do this every time out on a party boat. As soon as the ship clears the harbor, start paying out the line only. Hold the rod tip down as close or parallel to the water as possible. Works very well...

Occasionally when I have my boat out on the Delaware, I pay the lines out on my saltwater rigs into the current which does the same thing while the boat is at anchor.

It also cleans the salt off the lines too.

Make sure you're past the last buoy before the line goes out--boat turns across the buoy, you're maybe screwed with chaffed line or worse---spooled!!!I've seen both happen

Default Re: spooling your reel to avoid loose wraps

I came up with a method to putting line on a conventional reel so that it stays tight. If it's too loose (especially braid) the line will dig into itself when you set the hook and cause tangles. So I spool the braided line onto another rod and reel (conventional). I keep the drag on this reel loose enough to be pulled out easily, but tight enough so there's a lot of tension on the line. You need one guy to hold the rod that already has line on it, and then you bring that line through the eyes of your rod that you want line on, then tie it to your reel. So basically at this point, both rods are connected by the line. The other guy keeps the bail closed and you just reel up all the line from his reel onto yours. Since his bail is closed, there will be a lot of tension on the line. I've tried every other way and this works best (by far). Hope i explained it okay.

If you ever get line twist when you line curls up back on your rod or knots up on itself, paying the line out behind the boat will work it out also but don't put anything at the end of your line.

Also the boat method is great for stretching new mono line. Let the line out put rod in holder in stern and drag it for five or ten minutes. Great way to stretch new mono

Make sure you clear the inlet! The drag on the line will surprise you, I let 3/4 hundred yards of 60 lb mono and i swear it took all I had to hold on!! I had to use my stand up harness lol! It does work good though! And yes do not put anything on and hold on tight

Don't use water! Spray some silicone on the rag, and then spool it with the most pressure. Using another person helps too.
