    if you fellas arnt fishing this winter, remember to loosen your drag all the way loose. this prevents a "sticky" drag... it helps especially on your baitcasting reels, your drag is very important in fishing for big cats and having it smooth could prevent a big cat from tearing or pulling the hook out.. Abu garcias probally stick the most, so everyone remember, loosen your drag while its sitting there waiting for spring.

    This is also important because the fish don't take the bait as hard as they would in the warmer months. If they feel alot of resistance they will let go of the bait.
