Tips for Reducing Fishing Line Memory

One of the most crucial aspects of any fishing trip is the performance of the chosen fishing line.

Modern technology has produced so many different types of lines that it can be very difficult to choose the right one for the job. Regardless of the situation, there are a few things that you can do to insure maximum performance from the line you choose to go with.

For example, monofilament lines are one of the most popular choices for anglers and offer the most flexibility overall; however, they are not without drawbacks. Line memory (circular coiling of line caused by being on a spool for long periods of time) can greatly hamper your ability to cast and fish effectively. One highly effective cure for this problem is to troll this spool of line behind your boat.

Simply pan out line without any hook or lure attached behind a slow moving boat until you are close to the end of the spool. Gently sweep your rod up and back with the tip close to the water as if you were trolling. The many twists your line has accumulated will be undone as the tag end of your line freely spins in the water.
