Line bouncing off reel and line twist

14 August 2013 - 11:45 AM

I recently spooled up with 12lbs. Trilene XT and I originally had the label side up but was getting line twist so I decided to spool up the remaining line(about 3/4) with the label side down. Now I my line bounces off the spool really easily as soon as the line goes a little slack and I do have line twist. I've tried holding the line out and reeling it in under pressure many times and also immersed the spool in hot water but the problems still exist. Is there anything I can do to fix this? Btw, I don't have access to a boat so the boat method is out for me.

What are you doing for bass opener?

Bass season opens this weekend in zone 16 so where will you guys be heading. I'll probably try a pond or 2 in Brampton. 

I'm returning, I took a break from fishing during the winter months

I've been a member of this forum for 2 and a half years now.

Some of you may remember me, I visited the site during the Winter but didn't post as I don't go ice fishing or know much about it. 

This year I'm planning on doing some spring Crappie fishing in order to start my 2013 fishing season earlier than summer. 

I plan on fishing some spots in Brampton, Burlington and the Halton region this year. For Crappie I'll go to Brampton as I've seen them in the water around June, I figure they were in the shallows long before i saw them in the summer.
