Have you ever used flourocarbon and had it spring off the reel and cause a big mess? The first way to avoid the problem is to make sure not to over fill the spool. When I do over fill, here is how I control it.
It will be fun this year seeing Dike 3 recede back into the depths. It rises like a beached submarine every four to six years only to dive back a couple of years later. I started guiding about 20 years ago and I have seen it all. High water, low water, and everything in-between.
