Add any suggestions please:
Reels should be oiled and grease according to manufacture's suggestions... Some people use W D 40 and spray it all over the reel. I prefer LUBE ONE !!!!!! than wipe it off... Don't get any in the reel clutch if there is one.... Duraglit is also a good product and is highly recommended. ALWAYS store reels with the drags in the off position, loosen them up for storage, and store in a cool dry place not a damp garage.
Lure's should be given the once over and hooks checked.. replace hooks before you loose the fish... Also store in a cool dry place. Not a damp garage. Take the time to care for your equipment and it will take care of you... Have it all ready for next year so you can grab it and go. Replace line next year and it will be nice and fresh. straighten out those spinner baits.
Anyone please add any helpful steps in winterizing your equipment proberly...
