Hi guys ,

Ive only recently started doing beach fishing and im wondering about whether or not i should be leaving my multiplier in gear or not when left on the tripod ? my reel does not have a ratchet witch is a shame so should i be loosening my drag in case of a fish dragging the rod and tripod in or should i just leave it in gear with the drag tightened down?

Any advice would be gratefully appreciated :)


With no ratchet; you will have to leave it in gear.....otherwise line will just spool off. So you do indeed back of the drag. There are - I understand - technical ways of doing this. But I just loosen it till a good tug on the line still makes the rod nod....
