What does 10000 mean on a fishing reel?
Choosing a fishing rod to go with this size reel: 10,000 or 100 model sizing gives you a large capacity fishing reel which will often perfectly pair up on any fishing rod that is 10 foot or more in length. You can even use in conjunction with a spin type boat rod or jigging rod rated above 10Kg.
What is a 1000 reel used for?
The 1000 or 10 size reel is ideal for fishing with 2-to 4-pound test monofilament line. I pair this reel with an ultralight rod measuring either 4 1/2- to 5 1/2- feet long. This is a great combination for trout fishing and small panfish such as bluegill and yellow perch.

How do I keep my fishing line tight?
Place a pencil or piece of doll rod in the hole on the spool and start putting a line on your reel. As you are putting line on, keep the line as tight as possible, this will help keep the line tight on your spool and also make sure you get as much line as you are supposed to on the reel spool.
What size reel do I need for a 7 foot rod?

What length of fishing rod do I need?
The length of a fishing rod typically ranges from 6-12 feet, so to choose a measurement for your needs, consider the type of fishing you plan to do, the species you are after and your fishing environment. A good length for beginner anglers is usually around 7 feet.
What do fly reel numbers mean?
Fly reel sizes are classified in the same way that rods are, they are sized by “weight”. Sizes can run from 3 weight to 12 weight. The smaller the number, the lighter the setup. So a 3 weight rod and reel set-up would be for catching small trout on a creek. Sometimes the reels may cover a wider range of sizes also.
What size reel is best for walleye?
As you gain an understanding of how to fish for walleye, we recommend purchasing a lighter rod and reel combo specifically for jigging and live bait. Ideally, the set up should be a 6′ medium light, fast action spinning rod with a medium-sized 30 reel.

What is the easiest fishing reel?
Spincast reels are the easiest to learn and simplest to operate of the three primary styles of casting reels. Generally, they are the least expensive. Spincast (spincasting) reels are identifiable by their “closed face.” That is, the spool containing the fishing line is totally enclosed within the reel itself.
Why is it called a baitcaster?
The baitcasting reel is mounted above the rod, hence its other name given to it in New Zealand and Australia, the overhead reel. The baitcasting reel dates from at least the mid-17th century, but came into wide use by amateur anglers during the 1870s.
Why do pro fishermen use Baitcasters?
spinnerbaits, or fishing in heavy weeds where you need strong line, Nels recommends baitcasters because they have more torque and handle heavy line better. Baitcaster’s are also more comfortable when pulling the rod tip down to side, as you would when fishing a jerkbait or Zara Spook.
