The digital control (DC) braking system will help the angler to cast comfortably and reduce the backlash.
There were long tides on Saturday and Sunday.
Barramundi are not aggressively moving about in search of their baits on occasion like this.
However, I knew when the productive fishing window would show up.
Anyway, I went fishing at Channel Island.
I had a big cast without thumbing the spool of the reel.
There was no backlash on the spool.
I could focus on my fishing thanks to the digital control braking system.
A a result, I caught and released three barramundi on Squidgies Fish 70mm Lime Lightning colour on Saturday.
The productive fishing window was only for about 20 minutes.
I also caught and released a barramundi on Squidgies Fish 70mm Lime Lightning colour on Sunday.
The productive fishing window was only for about 20 minutes again.
Honestly speaking, I'm unsatisfied that the barramundi doesn't have the size that I wish for.The sea water is so clear during this season that a large sized barramundi won't come into the shallow water during the day.
By the way, I like the fishing reel having a digital control braking system very much.
It's really useful for my land based barramundi fishing on lure.
That technology has progressed immensely in these few decades.
On the other hand, the backlashes will get beginners down even if they are using a fishing reel having a digital control braking system.
Basically, a bait cast fishing reel can backlash in casting of beginners.
It's not a very pampering fishing reel.
Beginners should cast their lures farther while imaging to swing their fishing rods in orbit as in the figure in a series of motion of their fishing rods.
