Help with technique

Sat Mar 02, 2019 9:33 am

New to shore fishing this year , I have always done a bit when salmon season was over but I'm really after taking to the sea fishing this year and bought some half decent gear . I'm doing ok with the fixed spool cast but I went away and got a Penn 525 mag having never really used them before . I have a 13 "6 Shakespeare agility Mx rod and there is 18lb mono with a 18-60 lb shock leader

I'm not getting birds nests which is a good thing I suppose but I'm struggling to match the fixed spool cast and I have to use a lot more energy casting the multiplier for little distance. I suppose I should try make a video but is there any basic things that I might be overlooking ,do people still meet up to practice ?
Thanks

Hi Paul C, I'm no expert caster but I do well enough to get a few fish. You could do worse than check out Mickser's post which has a few links to you tube videos on casting. These can be very helpful. You could also search for videos on setting up multiplier reels.

Hi Paul, nothing much going on at the moment with the casting.
where are you based? I could meet up and run you through the basics..
