TIPS ON NEW AVET REEL

Hey sorry to veer of hunting but can't help it fishing is still really good here in SoCal. I just picked up a new AVET LX 6/3 2 Speed Lever Drag, after my brand new Shimano Torium 30 seized on me while being hooked up to a 35# YFT. I, was wondering if anyone had any tips on do's and don't on it. Ive never fished with a lever drag or a 2-Speed. The whole "Free, Bait, Strike, and Full" settings are throwing me off. I'd appreciate any advice or tips and as always
Stay Safe,
Mike

Toss your bait out put your preset drag on strike and get some. I've never needed full drag on my 2speed

Before you'd use full your gonna click in to low gear and crank. Great reels! Once you use a lever drag two speed, you will never go back congrats!

There has been some bigger size tuna lately on the Osborne bank But the commercial fisherman came in and netted just about all of them this past week

Well I got Skunked! Caught a couple of rock fish, one really nice! Unfortunately I wasn't able to keep them (protected area, I guess?) but on a positive that new Avet Reel was amazing! So nice being able to put that baby in low and crank away!
