    does anyone know if it is possible to change the tension on the bait clicker?
    on the river where i fish the current pulls the line out with my clickers on:embarassed:
    is it possible to make it about twice as hard for the line to feed out with the clicker on? ...........i have about 5 or 6 of em and i never have taken one apart, yet!...........a stiffer spring some where would seem to be in order.

    thanks in advance............bill.

    Some folks say you can adjust the springs making it harder the spool to rotate, but, being a pessimist, I'd say you stand an awfully good chance of ruining the reel. What I do is to back the drag off to the point it will hold in the current, then set the clicker. You just gotta remember to adjust the drag as you get the fish on. LOL

    Thats what i do too when my clicker wont hold while drifting, just loosen the drag and let it do the work.

    Somewhere on either here or some place I've been on the web they put another piece in to make it louder. I know I copied it. Will try to find it.

    you can either tighten the cast control knob or like others have said leave the spool in gear and loosen the drag.

    I've noticed some of my baitcasters have lighter clickers than others, so I use different ones in different currents, or with large aggresive baits,, I don't like to have them engaged with the drag light.. but, will if I need to.

    Adjust the cast control knob on the right side.
