How do you spool a baitcasting reel?
Lonchar notes that you should feed the line through the worm guide at the front of the reel. Next, you’ll want to wrap the line around the spool and tie an overhand knot around the main line. Finish by tying an overhand knot on the tag end and by pulling on the main line until both knots tighten down on the spool.
Why is my baitcaster spooling uneven?

How much line should be on a baitcaster?
Casting reels should be between an eighth of an inch from the top and all the way to the top. If you get too much line on them, you’ll get a weird sound when you cast.
