Want to cast like a pro? Remember practice makes perfect and soon enough you’ll be casting effectively and reeling in fish! To ensure a great cast every time, start by lowering your lure about halfway between the tip of the rod and the reel. On a spinning reel, flip the bail open and hold the fishing line using your preferred hand. Take hold of the lure with the other hand.
Before casting out your line, draw down the tip of the rod pulling the lure back towards your chest. Take aim, looking straight down your fishing rod. Release the lure as well as the line you are holding with your finger. As the line comes off the spool, the lure will help move it forward, out into the water. Reel back in the excess line. Now all you have to do is grab a seat and wait for the fish to start biting!
