How do I properly spool my fishing reel? Verified

To properly spool your fishing reel, first make sure the spool is filled with the appropriate amount and type of line for the fishing you plan to do. Next, thread the line through the guides on your rod and tie it to the reel's spool. Hold the rod and reel at a slight angle and turn the handle to take up the slack line as you simultaneously feed the line onto the spool. Be sure to leave a small amount of line on the spool to prevent the line from tangling or snapping.

Can I use my spinning reel for saltwater fishing? Verified

Yes, spinning reels can be used for saltwater fishing but it is important to properly clean and maintain the reel after each use in saltwater to prevent corrosion. It is also important to use a saltwater-specific line, as it is more durable and resistant to damage from salt and other elements in the water.
