Tying Mono to Mono
« on: October 01, 2020, 01:30:22 PM »

Hey all! So, I was out practicing with my baitcaster. My line broke. Right in the middle of a cast. Found my plug and all the line that was on it. I got the idea of tying it together with a double uni knot, try to save line. That a good thing or dumb? Casts fine, just don't want to tear my reel up, or lose a lure.

I would re-spool.

As cheap as mono is why take a chance.

Why did it break? That's what I'd like to know. It did that the other day. Oh well! I'll just respool it. Maybe the line was damaged somehow.

In my opinion it wont hurt the typical baitcaster reel. Its no different than running a huge leader. As long as the knot is not hanging on the line guide I think it will work. Id cut the tag ends very short. To get by in a pinch I would say your ok.

As mentioned the cost of mono and to have the best casting performance I would respool as well.  But before doing so James77 has a excellent point. You need to know what caused it and if necessary fix that issue first.

Possible issues: line was bad, nick on the line, nick on one of the rod guides. The clue is, you said it happened the other day too.

I read somewhere that it could be your casting. My son is having the same issue. Where beginners at baitcasting. My line guides look fine. I read somewhere to, that your line can backlash and you don't know it some times, just one little loop is all it takes, your line breaks. Oh well.
